STOURBRIDGE RFC will head down to Redruth this Saturday all guns blazing as they look to pick up the two precious points they require to hold onto their National League Two status.

Stour will travel down to the Cornish coast with director of rugby Neil Mitchell (pictured) looking to put to bed the hassle of an end-of-season relegation battle with victory.

An injury-ravaged Stour side seemed to be floating towards safety, but a run of three straight defeats have seen them sink towards the relegation zone, requiring Mitchell to kit himself out with a rescue plan ahead of the long ride south.

The Stour supremo is determined to have their safety secured over the weekend, before they host Cambridge and Blaydon in their final two league encounters.

Mitchell said: “We will be going down to Redruth gunning for glory in a bid to secure our National League Two status.

“I don’t want our safety to still be up in the air going into the last two games, so we will giving it everything we have got this Saturday.

“We will basically be throwing everything at it.

“It’s just going to be difficult to whittle the 23 players we have available down to 20.”

Mitchell is hoping to have influential fly-half John Higgins back in contention for the weekend.

Higgins was expected to be missing for the rest of the season, with what was feared to be knee ligament damage.

However, it was later discovered to be only heavy bruising and following some extensive treatment from club physio Jim Williams, he will hopefully be there on Saturday back in a Stour kit.

Winger Martin Freeman will also be hoping to be back in the squad for Saturday.
