BEES have their best chance yet to claim four or better still five points in National League Two North when they take on Westoe, at home on Saturday.
The South Shields outfit have yet to record a win this season, while Bees’ young side are brimming with confidence, if still sore from losing away at Preston Grasshoppers.
“A win would be very nice and would come at the right time for us,” said director of rugby Eugene Martin.
“We’ll be aiming to put all our plans into action and carry them out – although it’s important that we stick to the structure.”
Bees certainly created enough chances against Grasshoppers in a highly winnable game, but failed to take the opportunities when they came along.
“It’s important that instead of throwing out that 50-50 pass that we hang on to it, retain the ball and have another go,” said school teacher Martin, who missed the trip north.
Bees fielded a young side last week and the task of putting old heads on young bodies is one of the key issues they will have to solve if they are to come away with the points at The Portway.
It all promises to be the day that the Bees bandwagon gets rolling. Kick off is 2pm and their Portway ground is just off junction 3 of the M42.
