FUTURE Bridport manager Edgar Marcu believes the Bees can achieve a “positive result” at home to title-chasing Exmouth Town tomorrow (1pm).

Romanian coach Marcu will take over from current caretaker Shaun Annetts at the end of the season and has assisted the temporary boss on the sidelines since late February.

And Marcu was given a greater share of responsibility for Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Cadbury Heath – a game the Bees were locked at 1-1 with 84 minutes gone before two late goals deprived them of a first point on the road this season.

The former Otelul Gelati youngster has been so encouraged by that performance he is now feeling bullish about Bridport’s prospects against Exmouth, who beat the Bees 4-0 on Boxing Day.

He told the Bridport News: “For the Exmouth game I’m expecting a positive result.

“Even if a team comes that is Southern League or National League South, we have to have the courage to play.

“At the end of the day, it’s football. Everything is tactical – this is what the boys showed on Saturday.

“When everything is organised and in place, things go well. It doesn’t matter (Exmouth) are players just like us on the pitch.

“I’m looking forward to it. I’m very pleased, we have good players and they are all coachable.

“All of these players are quality, they just need the right coaching to come to the next level – and they will do it.”

Goalscorer from Saturday, Marian Bosnea, is out while Callum Arnold and Dan Baggs are doubts. However, captain Jake Owen will be assessed ahead of a possible return from injury.
