Plymouth Albion boss to give fringe players a chance

Pete Drewett
Drewett has yet to lead Plymouth Albion to a win since taking over

Plymouth Albion boss Pete Drewett will play some of his fringe players in the British and Irish Cup at Neath.

Drewett has been in charge at the Brickfields for almost a month since taking over from Graham Dawe.

In that time Albion have lost all three matches they have played and scored just one try in the process.

"The Neath game, being a cup game, means we may look at some of the players who haven't had a chance yet," Drewett told BBC Radio Devon.

Drewett's side have lost to Bristol , Rotherham and London Welsh in their last three games, all of whom are pushing towards the top of the Championship.

Meanwhile Plymouth have dropped to second-from-bottom in the table, but Drewett is confident that his side can turn their fortunes around.

"The most important thing is the players are very keen, they're working hard.

"We've played the top teams, I'd like to think people have seen great spirit and heart from the players and in time I'm absolutely convinced they'll put smiles on people's faces, but more importantly their own, with some wins," he said.
