Blues not carried away
Published at 10:04, Monday, 21 January 2013
FURNESS coach Corne Els is refusing to get carried away as his side bid to make second place their own in the Cumbria League.
A run of four successive victories – including a nail-biting one-point win at Silloth and last week’s hard-fought triumph over Penrith A – have the Blues well placed to finish as runners-up to Hawcoat Park.
Another maximum points haul at Dawes Meadow would leave Els and co-boss Gary Pritchard waiting to see how Silloth ended their campaign, but knowing third was the lowest they could finish in the standings. But Els is refusing to get cocky and is prepared to have it tough in the Lakes.
“We’re expecting a good, competitive match,” he said. “They are always quite nice to play up there and they have a strong set of forwards as well as their good backs.
“It will be a good way to measure ourselves at the end of the season and see how far we have come.
“We’ve got confidence, but we don’t want to get too arrogant. It’s good going forward and it’s good getting the results we have been – it keeps everything positive – but we still have a young side with a lot to learn.
“We’re getting there though.”
Furness will be without Joel Williams due to work commitments tomorrow, while Andy Brannon is also out.
Scott Hadwin is expected to come into the back line to replace Williams, with Andy Shaw set to take a place in the pack.
