STRUGGLING Camp Hill are hoping to defy the odds and pick up a win tomorrow when league leaders Hereford visit Haslucks Green Road.
After four games in Midlands Two west, Camps are still finding life tough after suffering defeat in their last three outings.
Last week they were beaten on their travels by unbeaten Bromsgrove as coach John Corr was forced to field a weakened line up with half of his first team regulars missing.
A hat-trick of tries from pacy left winger Sam Lofthouse helped the home side continue their 100-per-cent start to the season.
Duncan Poke kicked an early penalty to give the hosts the lead before Lofthouse added the first of his three tries.
Camps fought back from an Ian Briggs' penalty after Poke had improved a score from right wing Warren Oliver for the hosts.
Minutes before half time Lofthouse added his second but fly half Simon Edwards raced down the wing to touchdown and leave Camps with an outside chance of getting something out of the game.
However, a 55th minute try from Dan Ingram and a further pushover from No.8 Nigel Burrows, which Poke improved, effectively settled the match.
Replacement left wing Alex Richmond got on the scoresheet for the visitors but Lofthouse completed his hat-trick to maintain Bromsgrove's impressive lead.
Full back Richard Stockhom added a fine individual try late on to wrap up the scoring as Camps battled back in vain.
