Match Preview

Bridgend Athletic next test for Wanderers





“We feel we have made great leaps forward this season but we need to back that with wins” said Matthew Bolton, Wanderers head coach, before the trip to Bridgend Athletic. 

“We spent a lot of time on the technical issues of our game this week. We’ll be looking for that work to have paid off on Saturday” added manager Luke Burton.

For the trip to Bridgend Athletic the Wanderers make 3 changes to the side beaten by Narbeth. In the backs Josh Hurly is injured so Ed Doe moves to fullback from the wing and Nick McGowan gets a start after impressing for the development squad. Up front there is a shuffle in the front row with Will Griff-John coming in at tight head prop and in the back row Garrick Armstrong moves from 7 to 6 with Andrew Bradbury coming in at open-side. On the bench there are new faces with Jack Dando and Ross Gibbon joining the squad for the first time this season.
