Ardleigh Green captain Lloyd Edwards says his side will be out for revenge against Woodford Green this weekend.
Edwards and his side welcome Woodford to the AGCC Bowl on Saturday as they look to bounce back from a defeat to Walthamstow and get on back on their opponents for a five wicket defeat earlier this campaign.
The skipper also realises they are all but out of the promotion race in the Shepherd Neame Essex League Division Three but wants to still mix it up.
“Of course, we will be out for revenge,” Edwards said.
“Over their place we put on a big total with Paul Hurworth scoring some big runs.
“We feel like we should have won that game and will definitely be looking to turn that result around and take the win on Saturday.”
The side have set their sights on finishing the season unbeaten and causing a mix up amongst the league positions.
“Well after the last few weeks results we are looking out of the promotion race unless something miraculous happens.
“Our aim now is to mix the promotion race up a little and win the last four games and finish as high up the table as we can to carry that from onto next season.”
Although, captain Edwards knows it will be a tough test against Woodford Green, and expects a close encounter.
“As always in this league I feel most teams are closely matched, so I would expect more of the same like we have had over the last few weeks.
“Tight games with the teams in and around our position in the table that could go either way on the day.”
He praised the Woodford Green line-up and believes if there key players are on form they’ll have to be wary.
“They have a couple of guys, ones up there in the run scoring charts and ones up in the bowling charts.
“If those two are firing then Woodford will be confident of winning the match but the same could be said about our team.
“As much as we look out for other teams we mainly try to concentrate on what were doing and if we do that we feel we can win the game.”
