Morris: It’s a big challenge
CINDERFORD are looking to bounce back from what boss Paul Morris has described as their ‘least convincing performance for over a year’.
The seventh-placed Foresters entertain Plymouth Albion, who are 11th, at the Beavis Memorial Ground tomorrow after differing results a week ago.
While Cinderford were slipping to a disappointing defeat away to Esher, Plymouth recorded a bonus-point victory over league leaders Caldy at home.
Cinderford director of rugby Morris said: “The league is still very condensed with just 12 points covering 15 of the 16 clubs.
“If we’d won last Saturday we’d have gone top. As it was, it was probably our least convincing performance for over a year.
“We didn’t deserve to win as we lacked any edge and we struggled for cohesion. Our kicking game was poor and we coughed up far too many turnovers.”
After back-to-back defeats, Morris says his team need no more motivation against a Plymouth side that finished third in National League One last season.
“We understand the challenge that Plymouth present,” he said.
“They were third in the league last season and are clearly a very good team. They present a very physical challenge.
“If we’re not up for that challenge then we’re not going to win. But I have no doubt we will be.”
