BRIDPORT boss Adam Fricker admits he is not “actively” looking to replace midfielder Oscar Latas ahead of the visit of Roman Glass St George to St Mary’s Field on Saturday (3pm).

Fricker’s men, searching for maiden back-to-back wins this season, entertain the Glass in Toolstation Western League Premier Division action for a fixture that forms their ninth home game in 10 outings.

With Latas’ departure to Evo-Stik Southern Division One South side Street, Fricker is counting on the return of defender Cameron Vere to reshuffle his pack.

He told the Bridport News: “We’ve got options. Cameron returns to the squad on Saturday.

“That gives us the option at the back to free up Kam Andrews (in midfield), which is probably where he’s at his best.

“He’s been doing a job for us where we’ve been light defensively. That’s a natural replacement. So we’re not actively looking, we know we’ve got enough quality in the squad.

“Obviously we’ve got the link between Dorchester which we use. We’ve got bodies coming in and out.

“We’ll speak to Dorchester on Thursday night and see where they are bodies-wise and see if we can bring anyone in from there.”

On the challenge of facing St George, who occupy eighth against Bridport’s 18th, Fricker admitted he had been doing his homework on the Bristol-based side.

He said: “They’re doing well. I’ve asked around about them, mates who’ve played against them recently, just to get a bit of intel.

“I’ve played against them and they’ve always been very difficult to predict. Hopefully we can take the confidence from the (Hengrove) win on Saturday and try and get a bit of consistency and a run together.

“We’ve started the season strong with cup games and won a lot. It puts us behind the chasing pack, but it’s nice to get back to league action and put a run of games together.”

Vere, Andrews and Tom Richardson all return, but Chris McGrath (hamstring), Andy Martin (suspension) and Leighton Thomas miss out, the latter through international duty with the Cayman Islands.
