Banbridge Town are desperate to give their fans something to shout about by upsetting the odds on Saturday afternoon.

They host Championship One side Dergview in the last 16 of the Intermediate Cup (kick-off 1.30pm) at Crystal Park.

The visitors will be much fancied to put their name in the hat for the quarter-finals but last time out at their home ground, Town secured a last gasp win over Sport & Leisure.

Boss Ryan Watson is hoping for more jubilant scenes this weekend as his side welcome back striker Ally Wilson but will be without the suspended Mark Teggart.

“It’ll be a nice game for us,” he said. “We’ve had a run of home games in the Intermediate Cup and it’ll be good to play at Crystal Park again.

“Our last home game was a very exciting one for the fans and it would be great to give them another good day on Saturday.

“Dergview are a good side but we’re looking forward to taking them on. There’s no pressure on us in this game and we’ll be ready and fired up.

“The last win in the Cup helped our league form so, after last week’s set-back, it would be great to lift things with a win on Saturday.”
