BRIDPORT assistant-manager Paddy Behan expects a “totally different game” to the Bees' earlier 5-0 win at Bitton as the two teams prepare to meet again in the Toolstation Western League Premier Division on Saturday (3pm).

Mark Salter was in brilliant form for the Bees that day, scoring four goals as Adam Fricker’s men shook off the exertions of a midweek FA Cup second qualifying round replay with Cadbury Heath to win convincingly.

But Behan is wary of a riposte from the River Boys and anticipates being afforded more respect than in the reverse fixture.

He told the Bridport News: “They have got some very good players. To be honest we went there after the FA Cup and made a few changes.

“I think they took us lightly and we said to the lads before the game they thought they’d turn up and that was that. We played very well and took our chances, it could have been 5-0 at half-time.

“It will be a lot different and I think they’ll give us more respect. They’re not a quick side but they’re a good footballing side.

“They thought slowing it down and playing football was enough, but we’re not going to take anything from that game.

“On paper they’re a very, very strong side and it will be a totally different game.”

Behan also revealed that Tom Richardson is likely to miss the game along with Leigh Bailey, while centre-back Louis Rutter remains unfit to start.

He said: “Leigh is suspended and Tom is away with work commitments. Louis isn’t quite ready to start.

“Defensively at centre-half we’re a little light but he’s a no nonsense lad. He’s honest and he’s infectious with how he makes a challenge.”
