KEVIN Innalls says he is confident his Bridgwater and Albion side can beat the drop ahead of this weekend’s crunch clash with Oldfield Old Boys.

Albion sit one point behind their opponents at the wrong end of the league table, but manager Innalls is hoping to pull away from the relegation dogfight, starting with a home win tomorrow (February 9).

He said: “The boys are up for it because we didn’t do that well at their place. They had a few Bath University players and caught us cold a bit so we’ll be looking for a good result at home on Saturday.

“There are still ten games to go and if you get two five-point wins you’re half way up the table so it’s no panic stations yet.”

Several new faces turned out for Albion in their Somerset Cup defeat to Weston last Friday.

Innalls says the majority will be available for the game against Oldfield and hopes their energy can turn performances into points.

“We should have seven or eight available for selection from that game so it’s time for some of them to put their hands up and perform on the pitch,” he added.

“The new lads came in and did well and Friday’s match was a chance for us to take a look at them. We’ve got some good players in and they’ve given us fresh impetus to push on.”
