Blues set eyes in the top four

 NEWBURY BLUES are training on a reduced sized pitch this week as they prepare for Saturday’s trip to Windsor and the challenge of ending a four-match losing streak on the road.

“The Windsor pitch is very narrow,” said head coach Lee Goodall, “significantly narrower than ours.

“So in training this week, we are replicating the same width of the pitch we are going to play on, and small thinks like that can make a difference.

“Otherwise, I think it is a pretty even playing field, although we will go in as slight underdogs solely due to our away form,” he added..

“It’s a tricky game, but it is winnable.”

Blues will be without fly half Ryan Trevaskis and flanker Josh Love, but Andy Herriott and Chris Guyatt return and prop Ben Hicks has recovered from the head wound he picked up at Maidenhead last week.
