Bridgwater co-manager Dave Pearse said that he was delighted with those “really important three points”.

He added: “I gave the lads a bit of a dressing down before the game as I sensed things had been getting a bit complacent in the last few weeks.

“To their credit, the lads were all excellent and I got the response I was after.

“Odd Down are always tough to break down but we stuck at it and Jack [Taylor] got his usual goal.

“Some people said a draw would have been fair but, ultimately, we took our chances and they didn’t.”

The Robins may be at the league summit, and Cribbs down in 13th, but the hosts will be without Jack Taylor and Jake Llewellyn, both of whom were sent off in last week’s Somerset Premier Cup defeat at Clevedon Town.

Cribbs are also unbeaten in their last four league matches, beating Brislington and Wellington, before drawing with Willand Rovers and Chipping Sodbury Town.
