Head Coach Lee Brennan said: "We have another four tough games ahead this weekend. We're prepared and raring to go ! We sit nicely in 4th place after a solid start in the first round of fixtures last month so we need to build on that and try to gatecrash that top 3. If we keep focused and perform to the best of our ability then I'm sure we'll pick up points."
