A brave performance in London last weekend earned the boys a point against a strong Rosslyn Park side, and it was another sign of the strength Ryan Lamb is building in the group.
It should very much be seen as a point gained, and it gives us momentum as we head into game week 24 of the season – the campaign is starting to draw to a close.
Indeed, just three fixtures remain in National League One for Albion, whose pursuit of a top-five finish is very much on. Two of those encounters will take place at the Brickfields, so it is all to play for in the run-up to the end of April.
This weekend, we come up against a Birmingham Moseley side who themselves narrowly tasted defeat at the hands of Rosslyn Park, but have won both of their fixtures since then.
The Midlands side have won two away from home, while earning a draw at Leeds earlier in the campaign. Conversely for the Ocean City’s finest, we have taken nine wins on our turf, so victory is the target on Saturday.
This season’s meetings:
It was a grim day for us earlier in the campaign when we went to Birmingham as we tasted a 35-14 defeat.
If you’re heading down from Birmingham on Saturday morning, it will take you three hours down the M42 and the M5 past Worcester, Bristol and Exeter. Head onto the A38, which will bring you down to the beautiful Devonport district and the Brickfields Stadium.
Rain is looking exceedingly likely on Saturday, so make sure you bring some waterproofs.
