BRIDPORT boss Adam Fricker described his side’s Dorset Senior Cup semi-final clash at home to Wimborne Town tonight (7.45pm) as “a bit of a free one”.

The Magpies come into the encounter the favourites, sitting 13th in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier South, two leagues above Bridport.

Fricker said: “For us it is a game that Wimborne are coming in with the expectation on them that they are two leagues above us.

“The expectation is that they should be beating us so from our perspective it is a bit of a free one where we can go out there and relax a little bit and just see what happens.

“We know that we can perform against the teams in that division because we have done it on a couple of occasions.

“For us it is one of those where we will do everything that we physically can but we will wait and see.”

The clash was originally supposed to be fulfilled last Wednesday, and was postponed due to the rain but there is heavy rain forecasted overnight and into the day of the clash.

Fricker said: “I think the issue is possibly that there is some heavy rain forecast.

“We will just have to wait and see, we will prepare as though the game is going to be on and we will just have to wait and see.”

The Bees will be without Chris McGrath and potentially Ed Butcher.

Fricker said: “We had a big blow losing Chris on Saturday, we are probably going to lose him for the next three to four weeks with a thigh strain.

“That is going to be a big blow for us and Ed has taken a knock on his knee so we are waiting to hear the outcome.”
