Highams club have lost each of their last seven matches in the league
Woodford head coach Tom Redfern believes Saturday’s trip to Old Cooperians in London Two North East is a vital game for both sides.
The Highams club head into Saturday’s game having lost their last seven in the league, while Coops have not win since beating Woodford in September.
Both teams will be looking to use the game as a chance to end their poor form, and Redfern knows victory is key for the two relegation rivals.
“It’s a massive game because we’re both not in good form and both at the wrong end of the table,” he said.
“There is that uncertainty about whether the game will go ahead because of the recent cold weather, but if it does, we’ll be raring to go and looking to turn in a good display.”
Last weekend saw Woodford lose 48-7 at home to London Borough of Redbridge rivals Wanstead.
With other results going against them on the day, it meant the Highams club dropped to the bottom of the table.
But despite the positions Woodford find themselves in, Redfern was keen to remain upbeat.
“We know the only way is up, but we also know as coaches we have to keep things positive with the players,” he added.
“We have to keep working as hard as we can because we are the only ones who can get us out of the situation we are in.”
