Willand Rovers player-manager Russell Jee says he should have a new striker in place for Saturday’s game against Bristol Manor Farm.
Rovers, who recorded a 2-1 win over Bitton in their last game, have been looking to add to their attacking options in their bid to climb up the Western League Premier Division table.
They have found the net just seven times in seven games this term, which is the worse than any side in the top half of the table. However, Jee is confident that will change when his new striker arrives.
“He is playing a couple of leagues further down, but he could turn out to be a little gem,” said Jee. “I’m really excited to see him play.
“He is not the biggest of lads in stature, but he is tricky striker. He has got good movement and he will score goals.”
Willand face a daunting fixture this weekend though when they visit Bristol Manor Farm. They have score 18 goals in four games at home this season, more than any other side in the division, and Jee says Willand will have to show the same defensive resolve they displayed against Bitton if they are to get a result.
“Anything less than that and we will probably get beat up there,” he said. “They are the highest scoring team in the league and they play good, attractive, passing football. They will be tough to beat, especially up there.
“They have got a good team and a very good manager. They have got aspirations of playing in the league higher and they do everything properly. Our boys will be under no illusions. They know what to expect.”
However, Willand do have the chance to hand out the first defeat of the season on Bristol Manor Farm.
