Andy Pratt says Canterbury will go all-out to upset table-topping Worthing when they visit Merton Lane on Saturday.
The city club’s aim this season was consolidation and they sit comfortably in eighth in National 2 South ahead of the visit of the free-scoring Sussex side.
Head coach Pratt (pictured) insisted his side would contest the game fiercely, despite being the underdogs.
He said: "We have scored over 30 points away at each of the top two this season so we have shown that we can score, it’s just keeping them out at the other end that is the problem.
"There is less pressure on us because we’ve taken important points against the teams around and below us, but I’d still like us to feel some pressure.
"We are at home and we will take it very seriously, we won’t go out there and throw it around thinking the result doesn’t matter.
"We have got to concentrate on our own game and if we can play the way I know we can, and they have an off-day then you never know."
Canterbury recovered from a poor first half to beat Lydney 22-9 on Saturday and Pratt said: "I don’t think I’ve ever seen such contrasting performances in the same game, but we snapped out of it, which was the important thing."
