JOHN Fieldhouse says his Woolston Rovers side will not take struggling Waterhead Warriors lightly at Monks Sports Club on Saturday, kick off 2.30pm.

Waterhead have lost each of their past six games, including a 54-16 defeat to Rovers in the reverse fixture on June 24, and sit second from bottom of National Conference League Division Three.

However, Fieldhouse is adamant there will be no complacency as his side aims for a third victory in a row.

“Waterhead haven’t had the best of times recently, but we will not be taking them lightly,” he said.

“We will be very professional in our preparations and once we are on the field, we will look to take control early on and then allow our quality to shine through.

“We have had two really tough games that we have come out on top in, so the confidence and belief that we have got from them is massive.

“We will now look to build on them and get a more comfortable victory this weekend.”

Meanwhile, Woolston Rovers A welcome neighbours Culcheth Eagles to Monks Sports Club on the same day, kick off 12pm.

The North West Men’s League Division Four fixture also doubles up as an NWML Shield semi final.

“Culcheth are a very good side so we know that we are going to have to play even better than what we have done in the past week,” joint-coach Andy Penny said.

“With the game being for a final place and also for valuable league points, it is vital that we get off to a good start and complete our sets.

“We are really focussed as a group and the competition for places is keeping all the lads on their toes, knowing that they need to perform well to hold onto their shirt.”
