Buoyant Spalding RFC captain Harry Sharman has called on his side to show a ruthless streak at Kesteven on Saturday (2.15pm).

Title-chasing Town visit the Midlands Two East (North) strugglers fresh off the back of a last-gasp victory over Dronfield last weekend.

That ended a two-game losing streak for Spalding – but Sharman told the Guardian that his side are making life difficult for themselves.

“We need to be more clinical,” insisted the long-serving skipper. “I think we had about 80 per cent of the possession last week, but just couldn’t get over the line.

“We seem to panic a bit when we get in the red zone and it has cost us a few times.

“But the lads still deserve great credit to have come back to win against Dronfield, we deserved it.

“Kesteven will be tough this weekend, they are improving and gave us a tough game at our place.

“The key is to score early – if we can do that, we could be on for another bonus point win.”

Town will give a late test to the influential Ed Duerden, while Richie Craig and Ian Knight both return to the squad.
