IT might only be six games in to the season but Tenbury Town boss Jack Moran is under no illusions about the importance of Saturday’s trip to promotion rivals Ross Juniors.

Third-placed Town visit a Ross side, in second, who have won four out of four with a goal difference of +18 after thrashing Burghill Rangers 10-0 last Saturday.

Town, meanwhile, were frustratingly held 2-2 at home by lowly Hinton Reserves, hitting the bar three times as they came from 2-0 down with goals from Matt Kerby and Adam Staples.

Moran said: “We have to keep going as it’s a long old season.

“It’s easy to say we were missing players and we were but that’s a cop out in my opinion. We didn’t start well and if you lose your concentration for a split second you can be 2-0 down as we were.

“But we are a positive bunch and we came away with something, given we had nothing at half-time, although it wasn’t what we wanted.

“We’ve had two results where we haven’t got what we’ve deserved but matches aren’t won on stats – this weekend is probably our biggest game so far and the pressure is on us to get something.

“But I like to think we can live with that pressure.”
