BRIDPORT manager Chris Herbst will look to avoid a “dribble moment” in Saturday’s reunion at St Mary’s Field with rivals Okehampton Argyle (3pm).

Argyle came from 2-0 down to knock the 10-man Bees out of the Walter C Parson Cup semi-final at Cullompton last month.

An added sub-plot to the match is the battle behind champions Ivybridge as the race for second and FA Cup qualification in 2024/25 is very much alive.

The Bees are currently four points above third-placed Crediton but have played three more matches.

Speaking to the Bridport News, Herbst said: “It’s still frustrating going 2-0 up and chucking it away, but we’ll learn from it.

“I’m looking forward to getting a run of games going now. I feel like that’s better than all this stop-start stuff, it’s no good for us.

“We need to make sure we finish strong. Saturday was a bad day at the office. Hopefully we can put that right. We’ve got to win our remaining games. I’m confident we can get the win.”

Herbst is also keen to avoid a repeat of two costly concentration lapses against Okehampton.

He said: “We just fell asleep. Two sloppy goals to give away. It’s more us, when we give goals away there hasn’t been screamers scored against us, it’s all our own doing.

“It’s things we can rectify and need to sort out if we want to be fighting for titles and winning cups. We can’t have moments of madness, that’s when you get punished.

“Locky (Mark Lock, assistant) calls it the ‘dribble moment’. If you have a dribble moment, you get punished.”

Top-scorer Riley Weedon misses out along with Fred Parsons, Toby Diaz and Adam Diaz but Will Gape, Isaac House, James Cox, Brayden Jones and new signing Joe Maunsell could feature.
