BRIDPORT boss Adam Fricker has stressed the importance of the Bees’ upcoming two games, as they visit Wellington on Saturday (3pm) before a trip to Cadbury Heath on Tuesday in the Toolstation Western Premier Division.

The Bees, who are 11th with 41 points, are looking to stay in touch with the pack of clubs from fifth to 10th, separated by 10 points with the latter, Shepton Mallet, four points ahead of Bridport.

Fricker said: “It is quite an important game for us to be fair, we have got an opportunity, playing Wellington on Saturday and then Cadbury Heath on the Tuesday. If we can get maximum points then we will be right up where we want to be.

“Let’s see what happens.”

Fricker highlighted the need to stay focused ahead of the last five games and says his team know what is expected.

Fricker said: “We want to stay focused and finish the season strong. We are not about to let the season just fizzle out, we have got five games remaining and the lads know what is expected of them within those five games.

“We will definitely be going for everything that we can get.

Talking about the mood in the Bridport camp, Fricker said: “Positive, performances over the last few weeks have been great. We have had some great performances, picked up a decent amount of points so confidence is where I was expecting it to be to be honest.”

“We are getting goals, and while we did not on Saturday we are keeping clean sheets the last few weeks. Defensively we have looked solid so all round we are really happy with the lads.

“For us the biggest key for us is staying focused from now until the end of the season and try to finish strongly.”

Braeden Symes will be out after suffering a recurrence of his knee injury on Saturday. The Bees are also waiting on James Cox (ankle).
