Exmouth Town are away tomorrow (Saturday) when they travel to Bridport for their latest Toolstation Western League Premier Division game.

Town are looking for a league double after their 4-1 win at home to the Dorset men on the opening day of the season.

BRIDPORT CURRENT FORM

(Most recent game first)

LLWLLLLL

In terms of their recent form, since an October 19 1-0 home win over Hallen, Bridport have played eight games, losing seven and winning one. Their most recent game was last weekend when they were beaten 3-1 at Parkway in a league game and the previous game to that was a midweek Dorset Senior Cup 4-2 defeat at Wessex League Verwood Town. Their lone success in the last eight was a November 30 2-0 home win over Cadbury Heath.

In their last six home games, Bridport have won two, drawn one and lost three. Their most recent home game saw them beat Cadbury Heath 2-0 and the game before that ended in a 9-0 defeat at the hands of visiting table-topping Bradford Town. The game before that saw them defeat Hallen 1-0 and before that it was back-to-back defeats, 3-1 to Buckland Athletic and 6-0 to Bridgwater. The other home game in their last six was a September 14 3-3 draw with Keynsham.
