DAVE Webb says his Swindon Supermarine side must be hard to beat first and foremost if they are to gain a first Southern League win of the season at Bideford tomorrow.

Marine beat Northwood in the FA Cup last weekend but have been held to 1-1 draws in each of their two league contests so far in the West division.

Bideford thumped Wells City 6-0 in the FA Cup last time out and boast a 100 per cent record in all competitions this term, having yet to concede a goal in the process.

Supermarine also play host to Cirencester Town on Bank Holiday Monday but with what is sure to be a tough test awaiting in Devon before then, Webb says his side cannot look any further ahead than Bideford.

“We’ve got a very tough weekend coming up with two very, very tough games,” said Webb.

“We’ve got a long trip to Bideford on the Saturday, which is always difficult at any time, especially after they have won three on the spin.

“They’re obviously playing very well and are going to be very difficult to beat at home. That’s our focus now and we’ll worry about Cirencester after Saturday.

“To go down to Bideford and get any kind of result will be something.

“I don’t think there will be that many teams that go there and get anything at all this season.

“We’ve got to be brave. One things for sure, if you go there and you’re not strong and you’re not organised and you’re not prepared to stand up tall, then you are going to have a tough afternoon.

“I think we lost there 4-0 last season and we’ll be looking to improve on that, for sure.

“If you go to Bideford and you’re not prepared properly and you’re not going to set up and be strong, then the likelihood is that you’re going to get beat.

“We want to play football, of course we do, but the priority is that we have to be resolute in defence and deal with the way they play because they are a strong side.

“They won’t give much away, definitely at home this season.”

Webb reported a clean bill of health from last weekend’s FA Cup success and the Marine boss hopes to reap the benefit of a full week’s unhindered preparation at Bideford.

“I don’t think we have any injury worries. I think everyone is okay, just some minor niggles but nothing serious,” said Webb.

“We’ve had no midweek game this week so it has given everyone the chance to recover for the weekend.

“We’re looking forward to that now, especially after getting our first win last weekend.”
