WEYMOUTH & Portland coach Simon Litster says his side will be looking to ‘correct’ their draw at Bridport, as they host them today in Dorset & Wilts One South.

The Seahorses played out a 24-24 draw back in September but since then the two sides have had differing fortunes, with Weymouth sitting fourth and Bridport at the foot of the table.

Litster said: “We are looking forward to it, welcoming Bridport to us, it was a drawn game down there so I am sure our lads will be looking to correct that and come away with a win.”

Weymouth have gone nearly a month since their last match, a 13-3 victory over Wimborne Seconds, and Litster is confident his side will be up for the challenge.

Litster said: “It has been a long lay off, we haven’t played since December 8 so that is about a month. So I am sure that some of the boys will be raring to go and blow the cobwebs off. I think we are looking forward to it.”

There are a couple of changes for the Seahorses, with Billy and Dan Haine unavailable, so Carl Sankey comes in at hooker while Jason Hoskins comes into the back row.

Referring to Sankey, Litster said: “I am sure he will want to make his mark and prove that he is worth a starting position.”

Discussing Hoskins, Litster added: “Likewise I think he will be looking forward to a start

rather than coming off as a replacement.”

Norton Rogers sustained a head injury in their last game so he will take an extra week off but other than that Weymouth are at full strength.

The Seahorses sit fourth in the table, with five wins, one draw and four losses so far this season, while Bridport have a solitary win alongside two draws that leaves them at the bottom of the table.

Discussing Bridport’s lowly position, Litster dismissed the idea that the table is reflective of the quality of the teams.

When asked if his players have been looking much at the table, Litster said: “No I don’t think so.

“I don’t think positions in the league really reflect the underlying performances of the teams. There has been some surprise performances all the way through.

“Their position at the bottom I am not putting too much emphasis on that.

“That is where we were this time last year so I am sure they will come out fighting. I am sure they will be up for their game, and they will lift their game to what ever level they need to.

“They are a good side and we are not underestimating them.”
