TENBURY Town’s Keiran Fish believes his club’s commendable camaraderie deserves to win the day in this weekend’s ‘wooden spoon’ clash against visiting Kington Town.

The two Towns, cast well adrift from the rest, are separated by a single point at the foot of the Herefordshire Premier after both again suffered heavy defeats last weekend.

Tenbury lost 7-0 at home to league leaders Wellington Reserves while Kington were beaten 6-1 by visiting third-placed Ledbury Town.

Joint-manager Fish’s side are a point above Kington due to the latter being deducted six points for not fielding a team on occasion and he hopes Tenbury’s commitment is rewarded.

Fish said: “The main thing for us is to beat Kington because it probably decides who stands bottom and who stands second-bottom.

“It might not really matter that much because I’ve spoken about the potential option that we might choose about going down if we have the chance.

“But we have had a tough season and it would be a bonus not to finish bottom.

“Kington have had six points deducted for not fulfilling fixtures while I have had five subs when we are playing top of the league and potentially getting a drumming because everyone is keen to play.”
