BRIDGWATER Town face a stern test this weekend as they head to promotion-chasing Exmouth Town in the Toolstation Western League Premier Division (3pm).

Town saw last weekend's scheduled trip to Buckland Athletic postponed due to a waterlogged pitch but were in action in midweek beating local rivals Wellington 2-0.

They are now due back in Devon this Saturday for a first trip to Exmouth - who have won 15 of their 18 league games so far - since being beaten 3-0 in last season’s FA Vase.

Bridgwater player-manager Dave Pearse said: “It will be a proper test.

“They are big, strong, physical and direct and they are on a roll. We will need our leaders to stand up and be counted.

“We tend to raise our game against better teams and this is an opportunity to show what we are about.”

In the Uhlsport Somerset County League Premier Division, third-placed Middlezoy Rovers are looking to bounce back from a defeat last weekend as they travel to Nailsea United.

Zoy's reserves host Glastonbury in Division 2.
