BRIDPORT boss Adam Fricker has warned of the need to be “completely switched on” against in-form Falmouth Town during their FA Vase first round clash at St Mary’s Field on Saturday (3pm).

Fricker is wary of the Ambers’ goalscoring record, with the Cornish club having notched 38 goals in 12 league games this season to earn a placing of fifth in the South West Peninsula League Premier.

Bridport, in contrast, occupy 18th spot in the Toolstation Western League Premier Division having picked up one win in six games.

Speaking to the Bridport News, Fricker said: “It’s going to be a tough game.

“I know that they’re going very well in their league and look like a very free-scoring team.

“We know full well that we’ll need to be completely on it. We don’t know much about them and they won’t know much about us.

“We need to focus on what we do first and foremost but also have one eye on their strengths which does to me appear to be going forward.”

Progression in the cup, and subsequent delay to the Bees’ league programme, does not faze Fricker.

He said: “Any cup competition is good. It brings a little bit more money in for the club which is a bonus and hopefully we’ll get a decent crowd down there.

“It’s a great competition to progress in if we can. We’ll be solely focused on getting that result and hopefully it will kick-start our league campaign as well.”

Matt Condliffe (eye) is edging closer to a return, but Oscar Latas will serve a one-game suspension.
