BRIDGWATER Town are looking to bounce back from Saturday's FA Cup defeat to Bitton, as they make the short trip down to Wellington tomorrow night (7.45pm).

The Robins took a 2-0 lead in the preliminary round tie at Fairfax Park, only for the visitors to win 3-2, with the home side ending the game with nine men.

Tom Ellis had put Bridgwater ahead, heading in Jake Llewellyn's free-kick, and the hosts had a second just three minutes later, when Mike Duffy profited from hesitation in the Bitton defence, pinching the ball off the goalkeeper and rolling it home.

Come the second half, Adnan Hiroli saw a shot cleared off the line, and 90 seconds later the scores were level.

Llewellyn tried to head clear but only found Liam Bishop, who crashed the ball past Jake Viney, and the equaliser came from Joe McClennan, who curled in an excellent effort.

Viney tried to keep the visitors at bay, but was beaten for a third time when Ash Kingston's 30-yard free-kick roared into the bottom corner.

Bridgwater tried to rescue themselves, and twice hit the woodwork, but the game's finale was an ugly one.

A challenge by home midfielder Duffy provoked pushing and shoving, and both Ellis and Josh Wadham were sent off.

Bridgwater now turn their attention back to their Western League campaign, and a match away to Wellington.

The game is set to feature Chris McGrath, who has signed for Bridgwater after playing for Buckland Athletic last season.

The son of former Aston Villa, Manchester United and Republic of Ireland player Paul McGrath, the centre-back has previously represented Bideford, Bridport, Frome Town, Taunton Town and Tiverton Town.

With Ellis and Wadham both suspended, McGrath is expected to feature in tomorrow's fixture.
