BRIDPORT assistant-manager Paddy Behan is looking to “sow a little bit of doubt” into Buckland Athletic’s minds in their Toolstation Western Premier Division encounter on Tuesday (7.30pm).

The Bees visit second-placed Athletic off the back of a 10-day break, their last match being a dramatic 3-3 draw with Cribbs.

Buckland, meanwhile, lost 4-1 away to Bridgwater in their previous fixture, and Behan is aiming to capitalise on that blip.

He told the Bridport News: “Buckland are a good side. They’re always there or thereabouts. But obviously they lost 4-1 so they will be looking to turn that around.

“It should be a good game. I think we can get into them early doors and maybe sow a little bit of doubt in their minds considering they conceded four goals.

“Scoring goals doesn’t seem to be a problem for us which is nice. They’ve got players from midfield that score goals and they’re just a good footballing side.

“We want to go to Buckland and make them think ‘we’ve got a game on our hands,’” he said.

Bridport welcome back midfielder Braeden Symes after his one-game suspension for picking up five yellow cards, but the Bees will be without Leigh Bailey and Ryan Hayter.

Behan said: “We’ll be without Leigh at Buckland, Ryan too. Apart from that we have got everyone back, but Bailey will be a big miss. It’s just a case of someone stepping in and doing his job.

“Braeden is back and he covers an awful lot of ground for us.”
