Bamber Bridge will have the sweet smell of home to look forward to this weekend when they host Witton Albion at the Sir Tom Finney Stadium.

By a quirk in the fixture list, plus some inclement weather to boot, Brig have only played in front of their own supporters three times out of 12 competitive games this season.

Brig now have four of their next five games at the Sir Tom Finney Stadium and boss Joey Collins admitted the next couple of weeks are crucial to his team’s hopes this season.

“It does seem a long while ago since we played at home,” said Collins.

“It‘s quite tough being on the road – some games we are travelling three hours to matches when the lads have been working.

“I think in all competitions we have only had three at home.

“When we have played at we have done okay – we seem to get the ball down and play a bit more.”
