BRIDGWATER Town are set to play for the first time in two weeks today, as they welcome Street to Fairfax Park for a Boxing Day clash (3pm).

The Robins’ scheduled fixture at home to Brislington was postponed last Saturday, after failing a pitch inspection.

Co-manager Dave Pearse told the Mercury: “There was a 10ft by 10ft area by the home dugout that had collected water, but the pitch should be fine for Boxing Day.”

New signings Noah Coppin and Oscar Latas are in line to start one of Bridgwater’s next two games, with the Street fixture being followed by a trip to Clevedon Town on Saturday (3pm).

Bridgwater & Taunton College talent Coppin has come in on dual registration terms with Taunton Town, and Latas has arrived from Southern League side Melksham Town.

“They’ll start one of the two games,” Pearse said.

“We will use our squad as best we can, and everyone will play a part in those two games in three days.”

Regarding 12th-placed Street, the Robins boss added: “I’ve watched them a couple of times this year; they look a good side, they’re fit and energetic.

“We seem to struggle against mid-table sides, so we need to be on it.”

Bridgwater, currently sixth in the Premier Division standings, then head to third-placed Clevedon.

“It’s a game we can’t lose,” said Pearse.

“We have to go there and win, we can’t afford another draw, so it’s up to the lads to go and get the result.

“If we don’t win, we’re looking at a top five finish rather than top three, so the pressure’s on.”
