Causer eyes crunch bat­tle as key to Cross pro­mo­tion

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

ab­sen­tees from the reg­u­lar line-up as the league lead­ers sur­ren­dered a twogoal lead en route to de­feat.

With pro­mo­tion ri­vals Har­row and Wy­combe 3rds both win­ning, all mar­gin for fu­ture er­ror has gone and Causer ad­mits his team al­ready have half an eye on a crunch bat­tle with the lat­ter in two weeks’ time which should de­cide their fate one way or the other.

“It will prob­a­bly come down to the re­sult of that game now,” he said. “If we lose that we’re stuffed.”

Such a sce­nario did not look likely early on as Cross made light of their nu­mer­ous ab­sen­tees with Alex Cole’s dou­ble fir­ing them into a 2-0 lead.

How­ever, per­haps miss­ing some vi­tal ex­pe­ri­ence, they pressed for a third to kill the game off and ended up let­ting Wok­ing­ham back in.

“I think the re­sult was in the main down to avail­abil­ity,” added Causer.

“What with half-term and ev­ery­thing we prob­a­bly only had six reg­u­lars with the rest made up of play­ers brought in from the 2nds and 3rds. We’ll be back to full strength from now on and if we put out a full team we are a good side.”

“It is in our hands and if we keep on win­ning we’ll get pro­mo­tion.”

Mean­while, the Ladies 1sts re­main fourth in the three Coun­ties League Divi­sion One fol­low­ing a 2-2 draw with Ox­ford 4ths.
