BEES: Senior calls for a ruthless streak
7:10am Friday 27th September 2013 in Sport
CADBURY HEATH v BRIDPORT
BRIDPORT boss Trevor Senior wants his players to become more ruthless in front of goal.
The Bees have been playing good football of late but have not always killed off their opponents as quickly as they might have – a weakness that may start costing them precious points as they look to climb the Toolstation Western Premier Division table.
Reflecting on the 2-1 home victory over Ilfracombe Town last weekend, Senior said: “We definitely deserved to win the game and it could have been a lot more comfortable than it was.
“We knocked the ball around well and created some great chances.
“However, we just need to become a bit more clinical, particularly in the final third.
“If we start doing that and continue playing the way we have been there is no reason why we cannot go on a bit of a run.”
Ryan Dovell and Steve Smith both returned from injury in the success and Senior reckons their eye for a goal could make all the difference.
He added: “Ryan got a good hour but we didn’t want to risk him any more than that because he is a big player for us.
“Steve was obviously disappointed not to start but he got a good 30 minutes as well.
“Since coming in on dual registration forms he has been a bit unfortunate.
“He played the first three games but then missed two through injury and was cup tied for another.
“I need to speak with Wimborne again but hopefully we can keep him.
“If we can get those two fit and firing then it would be a massive boost for us.”
The Bees face a tough trip to high-flying Cadbury Heath (3pm) tomorrow.
Cadbury currently sit fourth with 17 points from nine games while Bridport lie 14th with nine points from eight.
Bees (from): S Filkins, J Filkins, C Clarke, Evans, Watts, Hayter, Luke, Wise, Richardson, M Buckler, Dovell, Smith, Morley, Condliffe.
