Bridport will be going all out tomorrow (Saturday) to extend their unbeaten record to six on the trot with a trip to Plymouth Marjon.
The Bees, enjoying a run of success since new manager Chris Herbst took over, extended their unbeaten run to five games last week when they drew 1-1 with Newton Abbot Spurs, the side that beat Bridport 6-0 at St Mary's in the first game in which Herbst took charge back in October.
Plymouth Marjon sit in 14th position above Bridport in the South West Peninsular Premier East division, just two places above the resurgent Bees. They have just 18 points from 28 games with Bridport having nine games in hand so the Plymouth side are well in their sights.
The Bees' goal against Newton Abbott Spurs came from the ever-reliable Tom Richardson whose recent form was described by the manager after the game as "brilliant". He added: "He wanted to come back to Bridport and he's loving it."
In the Dorset Premier League Bridport Reserve, languishing at the foot of the table with only three wins from 18 games, were thrashed 8-0 by Wimborne Town Reserves. The Bees' second string were reduced to ten men early in the second half when Dane James was red carded for a comment he made to the linesman.
