BRIDGWATER Town player-manager Dave Pearse has urged his side to "find some consistency" ahead of Saturday's trip to Cribbs.

Town's 1-0 defeat at Shepton Mallet last weekend saw them lose ground on the leading sides, though they bounced back to beat Keynsham Town by the same scoreline in the Somerset Premier Cup on Tuesday night.

That has been emblematic of the Robins' season so far and Pearse believes it is time for his side to put a run together.

“We need to find some consistency," he said.

"So far this season we have won one, then lost one, or followed a great performance with a disappointing one.

"Last weekend, for example, we had been brilliant against Saltash in the Vase in midweek but we were not good enough all over the pitch at Shepton.

"We are 10 points behind Bradford and Parkway now - that is a lot of points to make up.”

Pearse also admitted he was “gutted” to have lost the services of Mike Duffy, the midfielder having made the switch to Middlezoy Rovers last week.

“Mike has been brilliant for us,” Pearse said.

“He has been with us a long time and fancied a change which, combined with his work commitments, have seen him move.

“The door is always open for him here.”

Zoy are also in action this weekend, hosting Westfield in the Somerset County League Premier Division.

There is no game for Zoy's reserves in Division 2, while Bridgwater Town withdrew their reserve side from Division 1 earlier this week.
