Baxter: Let's step it up

HEAD coach Ross Baxter has called on his Bromsgrove players to find their attacking verve when they entertain struggling Stockport on Saturday (2.15pm ko).

The Boars have built up a head of steam in the National Two North after carving out a four-game unbeaten run.

The weekend’s narrow win over Huddersfield only further strengthened their bid for safety and they will be aiming to build on that against Saturday’s second from bottom opponents.

“I was really pleased with the win over Huddersfield,” said Baxter.

“We dominated for large parts of the game and defended really well.

“Our problem was that we didn’t score enough tries and with 10 minutes to go, Huddersfield made a big push.

“But we’ve worked very hard on our defence and have in recent weeks only conceded one try in four matches.

“In recent weeks we’ve gone back to basics and that has paid off for us but now I want to team to find some fluidity going forward.

“I want us to be in a position where we’re putting together five or six phases of play like last season.

“Stockport score a lot of points but I want the team to build on the very solid base we’ve built in recent weeks.”

Bromsgrove welcome back trio Chris McGregor, Phil Horton, pictured, and Toby Wilson for the clash.

The Boars are fifth from bottom and have an eight point lead over the relegation zone.
