BRIDGWATER Town co-manager Dave Pearse is hoping his side can build on last weekend's impressive win over Clevedon Town as they head to struggling Cadbury Heath on Saturday.

This weekend's match is the first of successive fixtures against sides in the bottom three, with Bridgwater hoping to continue to apply pressure on the top five.

The Robins are seventh going into the weekend, three points off fifth, with hosts Cadbury Heath third from bottom.

On last weekend's win, Pearse said: “It was similar to last week, in that we passed the ball really well in the first half, got the goals and then had to hang on a bit late on when we switched off.

“We took our chances well - Jack Taylor made the first for himself and then scored a sublime second, and it was nice for Jack Jenkins to get on the scoresheet.

“We have to improve on seeing games out, though - better teams will make us pay for sloppy periods like the one we had at the end on Saturday.”

The frontman also praised the Town groundstaff for getting the game on amid the wet weather across the region.

“The groundstaff have been phenomenal all season,” Pearse said.

“When I was here a few years ago, pretty much every game at this time of year was called off and it led to a massive backlog at the end of the season, but the pitch was pretty good on Saturday.”

Town welcome back Jake Llewellyn from suspension on Saturday, with Shaun Copp the only absentee as he faces around a month on the sidelines through injury.

Will Hancox, meanwhile, has joined Bideford a matter of weeks after re-signing for the Robins.

“It’s a shame, but I can’t stop him going to play at a higher level,” Pearse said.

Elsewhere this weekend, Bridgwater Town Reserves host Wrington Redhill and Middlezoy Rovers welcome Odd Down in the Somerset County League Premier Division.
