BRIDGWATER Town player-manager Dave Pearse is urging his side to believe in themselves as they head to title-chasing Plymouth Parkway tomorrow (ko 3pm).

The match pits two in-form sides against each other - Parkway have not lost since January 5 and sit level on points with current leaders Willand Rovers, while Town sit fourth having gone 13 games unbeaten themselves.

The Robins are taking a coachload of away supporters to Devon for the match, which precedes a Les Phillips Cup semi-final at Willand the following Wednesday (April 10).

Pearse said: “We learned a lot from playing Bitton recently [a 1-1 draw].

“We need to have more belief that we are on a level with these teams.

“We seem to think the top three are full of superstars, but they are not.

“They are good teams, of course, but ultimately they are in the same league as us and I think we can go there with confidence.

“I keep saying to the lads that 13 games unbeaten in any league is a great achievement and one they can be proud of.

“We can put a spanner in the works of their title challenge and we are going there to win.”


SOMERSET County League Premier Division side Middlezoy Rovers are without a match this weekend, but Rovers Reserves face a crunch fixture against Division 3 title rivals Hutton tomorrow (ko 3pm).

Hutton are two points ahead going into the clash at the Aerodrome, which could well decide who will take the title with only four more games to come.

Bridgwater Town Reserves, meanwhile, are at home to Wells City Reserves tomorrow.
