Hood must learn how to win away

Robin Hood skipper Teddy Terceira knows the significance of his club’s away fixture tomorrow against St George’s, with both sides seperated by a single point in the standings.

Hood currently sit on seven points after their win over Boulevard last weekend, while the East Enders are one point behind having played a game less.

For the newly promoted team, it will be their fifth away match in their last six games, all of which were defeats. While they know that it will be a tough environment to go and get points in, Terceira believes his side have what it takes to make it two wins on the trot.

“We know the game holds added signifigance given we are sitting right next to each other in the table, and both sides are hoping to get away from the relegation area,” said Terceira.

“They are a good side, a strong side that can beat any team on their team on their day and we just need to be wary of this.

“Hopefully we can give them a good game at their place, this will be the fourth or fifth game on the road for us, although our game last weekend was at home it was an away game as well, so we want to get something on the road to get us up the table.”

Depending on how results go this weekend, the loser of this match could see themselves in the relegation zone, with Boulevard holding on to the second relegation spot on four points.

Admitting that their away form has to improve in order to be in with a shout of survival, the captain knows it starts with one game and one away win that could potentially kick start the campaign.

Given their away fixtures to date that include trips to Southampton Oval, Bernard Park, St John’s Field, and Devonshire Rec, the trip to Wellington Oval would seem relatively straight forward.

They won’t take the game for granted, however, with the respect between the two sides mutual.

“Nobody wants to be close to the drop zone, so to get the win last week against Boulevard was great for our confidence heading into the week and preparation for this match.

“At some point we had to try and get something out of our games and we did that in the previous match and the same will be said for this game.

“Taking your chances in this game will be a must, we have a lot of respect for hteir coach and they have dangerous players up and there and we just need to step to the plate and get a result that will get us closer to our goal.”

Elsewhere in the league tomorrow, leaders and champions North Village travel to Southampton Oval to take on Southampton Rangers, while Dandy Town welcome Somerset Trojans to St John’s Field.

In tonight’s action, PHC make the trek to BAA Field to face off against Boulevard, with kick off set for 9pm.
