DARREN Watts returns to the Bridport squad for tonight’s home game against Odd Down (7.45pm).

Watts missed the FA Cup defeat to Highworth Town last Saturday after figuring in the Bees’ first two Toolstation Western League Premier Division outings.

While he comes back into the fold for tonight’s contest, Bees’ boss Trevor Senior will be without the services of Sean Stewart.

Bridport are still looking for their maiden success of the new campaign following a couple of 3-0 losses in the league and that cup exit at the hands of Highworth.

They take on a side that has one win and one defeat to their name in the league to date.

Bath-based Odd Down did the double over Bridport last season.

They triumphed 2-0 at St Mary’s Field courtesy of late goals from Steve Jones and Kye Simpson then won the reverse fixture 4-2 in April, with Tom Richardson and Matt Condliffe on target for Senior’s men.

A fourth-placed finish last time out means Odd Down are arguably one of the sides to watch on this occasion.
