Bamber Bridge can make it 10 games unbeaten if they manage to avoid defeat against Wakefield this Saturday.

The Irongate outfit extended their magnificent run brushing aside Cammell Laird in a hard fought physical battle.

Brig were last defeated at Salford City on the night were Brig were robbed by having a goal chalked off after officials failed to notice it had crossed the line.

Boss Neil Crowe is delighted with the run that his side has built and he just wants it to keep on going.

He said: “Obviously we want to keep the run going, and we are playing well at the moment so it’s a good feeling.”

Crowe was delighted with the performance in 1-0 win over Cammell Laird, and was even more pleased with Curtis Thompson’s goal.

He added: “The strike from Curtis was good enough to win any match.

“We had it tough and Cammell Laird applied plenty of pressure on us.

“But everything was always in front of us and I don’t really remember Steve James having a save to make.

“I was pleased with how we played and even though it was a close game I thought we deserved the win.”

But Brig have been dealt a huge blow after losing the services of defender Phil Doughty.

Doughty will be working in Abu Dhabi for the next three months but Crowe wants to focus on the positives despite the loss of his defender.

He said: “Phil rang me up and said he couldn’t turn the opportunity down. I said he would be a fool if he did say no, but we have Jamie Hastings who has done well for us as well as Paul Alexander.”

Brig are pleased to announce the signing of former Blackburn Rovers winger Jerome Watt.

Watt will go straight into the squad for this Saturday’s home game with Wakefield.

Brig also take on Wakefield the following Saturday due to Northwich Victoria being in the FA Trophy.

Crowe said: “I don’t mind having to play them twice in two weeks.

“On paper it is a fixture we should be winning, so hopefully we will be able to get six points from the games.”
