BRIDGWATER Town boss Phil Hucker has said he is expecting a response from everyone involved with the club as they travel to Swindon Supermarine on Saturday (ko 3pm).

The Robins fell to a dismal 3-0 defeat at home to Barnstaple Town last weekend, but the manager insisted that his side are capable of bouncing back in Wiltshire.

"We will treat them with respect as they are a very good side who are challenging for the play-offs, but we will go there with a positive frame of mind," he said.

"Everybody has got to respond to what happened last weekend, and that of course includes me as well as the players.

"I am setting the team up, selecting the players and telling them how to play, so I take responsibility when it doesn't go to plan."

Last weekend's defeat was Town's ninth on the spin, and the manager revealed that changes are in store for the tough away trip.

"There will be changes in how we set up, and we will be shuffling the pack to try and stop the rot," he said.

"The reaction of the players in training has been very positive. We know where we are and where we want to get to."

Supermarine are eighth in the division and won the reverse fixture 5-0 at Fairfax Park in October's reverse fixture, so the Robins know they have a challenging task on their hands this weekend.

Bridgwater, meanwhile, are 14 points from safety going into the fixture and find themselves in dire need of a result if they are to mount a dramatic survival bid.
