BRIDPORT boss Rob Marquis feels the Bees’ clash with Cadbury Heath presents a good chance for points on Saturday (3pm).

Bridport entertain their fellow Toolstation Western League Premier Division strugglers at St Mary’s Field looking for their second win of the season.

And Marquis believes in order to show his bottom-of-the-league side are capable of fighting for survival, a positive result is needed.

He told the Bridport News: “They’re a side where if we’ve got to have a chance to surviving we’ve got to be expected to get some points from.

“The way we are at the moment, devoid of confidence, it’s a tough ask – an uphill battle.

“We’ll do everything we can to put things in place to set us up best we can for Saturday.”

Marquis added: “Those few steps that we climbed up, we’ve slipped off them again.

“We’ve got to start climbing those steps again. We were going in the right direction, definitely.

“There were green shoots of improvement and I started to see something.

“I’m not Jose Mourinho, Alex Ferguson, all the rest. The hardest job is dealing with a team in the situation I’ve got.

“At the end of the day, it’s like going into battle in a war with half the tanks of the other team.

“But I have to admire the effort and commitment from the players who keep coming every week. I just need a little more desire to improve what they’re doing.”

Bridport welcome back Kris Hastings and Dan Baggs, while new signing Rhys Williams could feature.

Dom McAllister and Christian Blango are unavailable – the latter for four months due to work – and keeper Jordon Scadding remains injured but Darren Lock could return.
