WESTCLIFF will be bidding to erase the memories of a painful defeat when they head to Tring tomorrow.

Westcliff let slip a 22-0 lead to lose 27-25 against league leaders Sutton & Epsom last weekend.

And Westcliff's James Scogings is determined to help the team get back on track.

"We need to put last weekend behind us and focus on producing some good performances as we near the end of the season," said Scogings.

"We are still in contention with a possible promotion place and it wouldn’t reflect the amazing season we have had if we start underestimating these last few games.

"But it was extremely frustrating to lose the game the way that we did.

"The lads really came out of the blocks flying and showed what we are capable of.

"However, credit where credit is due, Sutton did not roll over and continued to probe our defences right until the end with additional help of some interesting calls from the ref."

Westcliff remain third in the London & SE Premier Division standings, six points below league leaders Sutton.

But Scogings is expecting another tough test against Tring who are fourth in the standings.

"I’m expecting this weekend will be another tough game with the forwards being largely involved," said Scogings.

"From memory they are tough upfront and won’t be pushovers but if we start the game in the same fashion that we did last week and continue it throughout the match, we should grind out another good performance.

"The last thing I want to do is settle for 'good enough'.

"We have shown over the past couple of years how we have improved and progressed through this league and got to where we are today.

"I think it would be a disservice to the club and the team if we didn’t continue this level of performance right up until the final day of the season."
