Redruth boss Penberthy still hopeful of league safety

Redruth RFC

Redruth boss Dave Penberthy says his players will do everything they can to avoid relegation from National One.

With only one game of the campaign left to play, Redruth remain in the relegation zone, one point off safety.

Penberthy said: "We owe it to ourselves and to the supporters to go to Wharfedale on Saturday and get a bonus point win.

"There's no regrets on anyone's minds, we win as a team, and we lose as a team and we'll take what's coming."

He continued: "Everybody is well aware of what we've got to do and we've got a coach load of supporters going with us as well.

"If our performance is not good enough to take the points then so be it but I just want to finish on a high so we can use that as the foundation to build next year."

Even if they do win away at Wharfedale, the Reds fate is out of their hands, and they must rely on results elsewhere to go in their favour in order to avoid the drop.

"It's been a tough long season," said Penberthy. "We've put some decent results together post-Christmas and if we do look back post 7 May and find ourselves in National Two we may rue some of our early season form."
