Bridgwater Mercury: Bridgwater Town cup upset could be on the cards tonight, says Kevin Milsom Bridgwater Town cup upset could be on the cards tonight, says Kevin Milsom

KEVIN Milsom said he fancies an upset tonight (October 2) as Bridgwater Town travel to Hemel Hempstead Town in their FA Trophy replay.

Town drew 2-2 at Fairfax Park on Saturday thanks to two Jon Vance goals and will head across country to take on a team who sit third in the Southern League Premier Division.

Milsom said: “They will fancy their chances at home and it will be a different scenario.

“But I was not too impressed with them and we will go there with plenty of confidence - there is no reason why we can't get a result.”

Vance gave Bridgwater a 1-0 lead at half-time on Saturday but two goals in five minutes turned the tables before Vance's second goal secured another bite at the cherry.

Milsom said: “They were both cracking goals.

“I think we deserved to win, we were much the better side and they were only interested in getting back to their place.”

Tim Legg is a doubt for tonight's clash due to work commitments and skipper Chris McGrath is not available until Saturday's clash at home to Mangotsfield United. Kick-off is 3pm.
