Godding targets three wins out of three for Lechlade
LECHLADE skipper Paul Godding says that only three wins out of three will do if his team are to become Glos/Wilts Division champions.
With the season approaching its finale, the riverside club are second in the table and battling it out with leaders Biddestone and Potterne for top spot.
Just 10 points separate those three sides and Lechlade will be hoping that their defeat to Biddestone last weekend doen’t come back to haunt them.
And Godding has laid down the gauntlet to the Manor Ground outfit as they target victory at Chippenham tomorrow.
“With only three games left in the season we all know that we have to win every game from this point if we are to win the league and I see no reason why we can’t do that,” said Godding.
“We showed a lot of character last Saturday in the fightback and I think this has helped keep us all stay positive. The boys know the importance of this weekend and all of them are up for the challenge.
“The boys trained hard this week and they all seem very keen to make amends as soon as possible.”
Lechlade coach Luke Sellers is adamant that his team must been on top of their game if they are to secure victory and maintain their title charge.
“Chippenham are a very competent side who gave us a good game earlier in the season,” said Sellers.
“We will have to knuckle down, be at our best and put last week’s result behind us if we are to get the right result and keep the pressure on Biddestone.
“Biddestone have a tricky game against Rockhampton and if we get a good result we could pick up some points on them this weekend.”
Lechlade make one change to the side as Ali Killham replaces the unavailable Tris Hawkes.
On Sunday, Lechlade take on Premier League Downend in the Gloucestershire County Cup semi-final at the Manor Ground.
Lechlade will be without Joe Breet who is on county duty and cup captain Arran Dickinson who is unavailable, but otherwise the hosts have a full-strength side.
Kiwi Arnie Yugaraja will deputise as captain and is confident the team selected is more than capable of springing a surprise and reaching the final.
“I’m very proud to be given the opportunity to captain the side for this prestigious game,” said Yugaraja.
“I firmly believe we can make club history and progress to our first county cup final.”
