Canterbury RFC head coach Andy Pratt dismisses thoughts of thrashing winless Barking and says any win will do
by Alex Hoad
Head coach Andy Pratt has cooled
thoughts of a Canterbury try-fest at winless Barking, insisting he
would be happy with a one-point win.
Canterbury make their shortest trip
of the National 2 South season to face the Essex side on Saturday
but Pratt is wary of the fixture despite the hosts having an
average score of 53-11 against them in their 14 games this season,
Canterbury added 47 points in the
second half of a 74-15 home win against Barking in September but
Pratt (pictured) said that display would likely make things harder
for his side, who have struggled themselves on the road with seven
losses from eight games.
He said: "Barking have had their
problems this season but they have brought some players in
"I’m sure they will have a good
crowd in for the game and their players will be well up for it.
"I’m sure they will want a little
revenge after the result earlier in the season and I would be happy
with any win."
He added: "A victory is the only
thing that matters. We have had plenty of bonus points and are
scoring tries but it’s about time we got an away win."
The city club have lost their last
six on the road after winning at Lydney in September and Pratt
added: "We have been close on a couple of occasions but not managed
to pull it off."
