BRIDPORT are aiming to exploit an out of form Westbury United side when the Bees travel to them in the Toolstation Western Premier Division on Saturday (3pm).

Westbury are on a four-match losing streak, which began with a 1-0 defeat at home to Shortwood United, the bottom club’s only win of the season so far.

Fricker said: “They are not in great form so hopefully we will be able to exploit that. It will be a tough game, a tough afternoon.”

The Bees had a superb result last time out, thrashing Shepton Mallet 4-0 and Fricker hopes his side’s form can continue.

When asked if his side will go there with confidence, Fricker replied: “Absolutely, we’ve no reason not to.

“The lads are playing well so hopefully we can carry on the form from the last few weeks and take that into Saturday’s game.”

The last time the two sides played Bridport lost to an 84th-minute goal, despite being a man down after Luke King was sent off in the 55th minute.

Reflecting on the game, Fricker said: “I think we learned a lot about them, we played well that day and we were very unfortunate not to get anything out of the game.

“We played a long period of the second half with only 10-men which probably ultimately cost us. So we will be hopefully looking to give a good account of ourselves up there really.”

The Bees are waiting on Braeden Symes, while Chris McGrath is still out but the latter may feature next weekend, Josh Williams was injured in the warm up against Shepton and the Bees are waiting on an update.
