IT is first versus third at Fairfax Park on Saturday as leaders Bridgwater Town host promotion rivals Willand Rovers (3pm).

The Robins have dipped into the transfer market ahead of the game, snapping up Wellington defender George Painter - one of six former Wellington players now plying their trade for Bridgwater.

Robins boss Dave Pearse, keen to freshen up his squad to avoid players getting "too comfortable", knows his side will have to be on top of their game to get a result.

“I saw them a couple of weeks ago and they were very good,” he said.

“They are definitely one of the best teams in this league and we will have to raise our game.

The Robins will be without Mike Duffy - who underwent an operation on his knee earlier this week - as well as defenders

Josh White and Mark Armstrong are also unavailable this weekend.

Pearse, meanwhile, will miss the next three matches having decided not to appeal his red card in last Saturday’s 5-3 win at Roman Glass St George.
