BEES: Senior unfazed by Bees postponements
TREVOR Senior is not too concerned by recent postponements and is confident they will not affect the Bees’ good run of form.
St Mary’s Field was completely flooded at the weekend and, with more sporadic rain showers expected throughout the rest of the week, Saturday’s home clash with Cadbury Heath (3pm) is already in doubt.
Last weekend’s postponement at Hengrove Athletic was the second game Bridport have lost to the weather in just 14 days.
However, they still remain well up on their fixtures having completed 23 in the Toolstation Western Premier Division already this season.
Bridport boss Senior said: “I haven’t seen the pitch over the last couple of days but having looked at some of the photos of it over the weekend I don’t think it has ever been as bad.
“It was completely covered in water and just on the evidence of that, Saturday’s game against Cadbury Heath has to be in doubt already.
“The forecast is a bit better now for the rest of the week but, with the amount of rain we have had, it’s not looking good.”
He went on to add: “Looking at the league table we are pretty much on our games, so it’s not too bad.
“However, we do not want these postponements to go on too much longer because it can cause you to get out of the habit of playing, and as we are on a good run at the minute it is far from ideal.
“Having said that, we have managed to train on the 3G at the Thomas Hardye Leisure Centre over the past week, and even managed to have a full practice match on there, so that should keep us ticking over.
“The worry is that we haven’t had a cold snap yet but at the end of the day you can do nothing about the weather.
“All we can do is just work through it the best we can.”
Chris Senior and Ryan Dovell are both unavailable for this Saturday’s clash with Cadbury Heath, who currently sit nine points and four places above the Bees in seventh spot.
Bridport have lost just two of their last 10 in the league, with both of those defeats coming against teams in the top three.
