BRIDGWATER Town face a massive fixture tomorrow, as the third-placed Robins host second-placed Westbury United at Fairfax Park (ko 3pm).

Bridgwater have drawn their last three in the Premier Division of the Western League, leaving them three points behind Westbury, having played four more games.

The Robins will certainly be looking for a better showing in front of the home fans than their 4-1 loss to leaders Willand Rovers in miserable conditions last month.

The hosts will be missing Sam Towler through suspension, but will welcome back Tom Ellis, George Painter and Dave Pearse.

Joe Swift, their new signing from Roman Glass St George, has recovered from injury, while Mike Duffy is also on the road to recovery and could feature in the next three to four weeks.

Co-manager Karl Baggaley told the Mercury: "We've had reports on Westbury, we know how they play.

"It would be good to start the year with a decent 90-minute performance at home.

"We've got smiles back on faces [after the draw away to Bradford Town] and we're looking forward to it."


TOMORROW also sees Middlezoy Rovers back in action, at home to Odd Down Reserves (ko 2pm).

Zoy are seventh in the Somerset County League Premier Division standings, with Odd Down winless and bottom of the pile.

Division 1 pace-setters Bridgwater Town Reserves face a tricky test away to Minehead AFC, who lie fourth (ko 2pm); Division 3 leaders Middlezoy Rovers Reserves are without a match.

On Sunday, Middlezoy Rovers Ladies are away to Torquay United Ladies in the Premier Division of the South West Women's League (ko 2pm).
