League lead­ers’ lead cut to two points and un­beaten record lost in dis­ap­point­ing start to 2016

are bet­ter than that and we had some strong words. We need to break out of the traps next week and hit the ground run­ning.”

While Ayles­bury, in third, are now four points be­hind the Cross, main ti­tle ri­vals Har­row are just two points off and they play them in a crunch clash on Satur­day week.

Be­fore that, they have the chance to re­cover from last week­end’s drub­bing, at home to mid-ta­ble West Hamp­stead 4s this Satur­day.

Causer added: “If we can beat Har­row and keep do­ing it against the lesser sides, we will win this league, but we need to bounce back stronger.

“We need to get our con­fi­dence back next week be­fore the big one against Har­row. We are still miss­ing play­ers, but should have ev­ery­one back for that one.

“But we are pos­i­tive in our abil­ity and con­fi­dent we can still do it. Some­times two teams go, but usu­ally just one, so we need to go for first place.”

The Cross will be look­ing to the goals of Causer, who has nine, and 12goal top scorer Dave Leech if they are to hold onto top spot.

Mean­while, the ladies team saw their Trys­ports League Divi­sion One clash against Ox­ford Ladies 4s called off due to a frozen pitch. They are due to visit Mil­ton Keynes Ladies 2s this Satur­day.
