BRIDPORT manager Rich Robson urged his squad to focus inwardly ahead of a tricky Toolstation Western League Premier Division assignment at Clevedon Town on Saturday (3pm).

Robson’s men drew 3-3 with Keynsham Town last time out, earning their fourth point of the campaign as the Ks pinched a draw with Adey Harvey’s 93rd-minute header.

But Robson pointed towards Brislington, who have risen to fourth after being pushed hard by the Bees in a 2-1 win, as evidence for ignoring talk over league position, with his troops in 18th.

He said: “I’m trying not to focus on what other teams are doing, we’ve got to focus on ourselves.

“You look at Brislington who were up to third, they only narrowly edged us. For me now, league position doesn’t really factor into the game.

“In this league, anyone can beat anyone. If we continue our progress I’m hoping the attitude and performance levels continue.”

Bridport’s only win so far has come away from home, but Robson dismissed away football as suiting his side more than home advantage.

“We try to win no matter where we are,” he said. “It’s easier to counter away from home but we’ve got some tidy players – we like to play with the ball as well.

“It’s doesn’t matter where it is, we’ve got to try our best to pick up as many points as we can.”

Dec Cornish is unavailable due to family matters but Bridport are injury-free. Joe Charles returns from unavailability. Scott Wells-Burr will take the gloves from the unavailable Jordon Scadding.

Robson said: “That’s what’s helping us progress – having the same faces around. It’s helping us gel, we’re a new team and I’m hoping for another week of improvement.”
