SWINDON captain Liam Tucker says that he won’t allow his team to go into cruise control for the remainder of the season.
The County Ground side host Warminster tomorrow knowing that promotion, and relegation, are extremely unlikely this term.
As Swindon look to make it four wins in a row at home, Tucker insists that his side, which will go into tomorrow’s game unchanged, will continue to perform to the best of their ability until the very last ball of the campaign.
“We have probably got enough points to stay in this division and it is likely that we can’t win promotion so we are one of the few teams who already know that they are going to be in here next season,” Tucker said.
“But that doesn’t mean that we are not going to be competing, I’d be very disappointed if that happened.
“There are still places in the team to fight for this season and of course next year as well.
“We are going to go out there in every game and give it a real go.”
Goatacre will look to go a long way in securing their future in Premier Two when they make the trip to Chard.
The hosts tomorrow currently sit third-from-bottom, one place and six points, below Brad Dawson’s side, however, a win for Goatacre could see them open up a 40 point gap between themselves and the bottom two.
Nationwide House will be looking to help secure their future in Wiltshire Division when they host Great Bedwyn.
Russell Arkley’s side have only won one match this term, a nine-wicket success over Marlborough last month, but that has been enough to help them create a two point gap between themselves and Devizes.
The battle for promotion from the Wiltshire League is likely to go down to the wire with Malmesbury and Wootton Bassett fighting hard for the title.
Malmesbury currently lead the way by 12 points and they will be aiming to increase tha gap tomorrow when they host third place Box.
Bassett, however, appear to have an easier job on paper as they look to reel the leaders in when they face third-from-bottom Bradford-on-Avon at Rylands Way.
