It’s win at all costs for Banbridge Town this weekend.

They travel to take on basement side Wakehurst (kick-off 3pm) knowing defeat could see them drop back into the doomed bottom four.

“It’s another huge game,” said boss Ryan Watson “Against the bottom side, we need to get a win. Nothing else matters. Winning is the priority and the players are all aware of what is required.”

Wakehurst have lost nine of their 12 Championship Two matches so far and manager Paul Muir recently stepped down.

“We won’t worry too much about that,” said Watson. “We will just concentrate on what we’re going to do and how we’re going to play. It’s a very important that we get points on the board before the Intermediate Cup match so that we can look forward to the next league game at home to Limavady.

“It’s important to get the momentum going again. A bad run can take you by surprise so we don’t want to be chasing another win for a few weeks.”

Town are without Glen Waddell and Chris McGrath while Stuart Thompson is doubtful with a hamstring injury. Stuart King and Matthew McCartan will come into the squad.
