Canterbury head coach Andy Pratt sets sights on upsetting National 2 South leaders Worthing
by Alex Hoad
Andy Pratt says Canterbury will go
all-out to upset table-topping Worthing when they visit Merton Lane
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
"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."
