BRIDPORT boss Adam Fricker remains determined to end the club’s up-and-down campaign on a high with victories in their final two league fixtures.

The Bees’ boss is coming to the end of his first full season in charge at St Mary’s Field after making the switch from Chard last summer.

A total of 10 losses on the spin from the middle of December to March was a tough period for the man in charge, but with only two defeats in the seven games since then, he is looking to build positivity going into next season.

Fricker, whose side host Brislington at St Mary’s Field on Saturday (3pm) before a home game against Bitton rounds off their season a week later, said: “We want to finish strongly and put as many points on the board as we can.

“If we finish strongly and do that then it can only bode well going into the summer for us.”

He added: “Brislington and Bitton are games that we should be winning at home, hopefully we can put in a couple of decent performances and we just want to finish the season on a high.”

Louis Rutter is back from suspension for the Bees this weekend but Matt Condliffe will miss the rest of the campaign with a two-game ban, something Fricker is frustrated by, after a stellar display by the full-back during the 2-0 win over Clevedon last time out.

“Matt played left-back for us and it was his last game of the season, he is suspended for the last two,” the Bees’ boss added.

“It was probably his best performance of the season, to be fair, he was excellent. He was strong in the tackle and his distribution and quality was excellent as well.”
