Launceston head coach Jimmy Tucker is convinced his side will end their poor run of form in National Two South.

The club are 14 points adrift at the bottom of the table after failing to win any of their 13 games this season.

They face second-from-bottom Chinnor this weekend before the Cornish derby with Redruth a week later.

"We've got to be positive, we've got to be enthusiastic, and at some point the tide will turn and we will have a good run," Tucker told BBC Radio Cornwall

He was named as the club's new boss last month, but has been unable to stem the tide of poor results.

"I'm enthusiastic and determined and I hope that reflects in the players' performances," he added.

"There's a lot of good men in the team and they're determined and they're hurting.

"I cannot portray anything other than enthusiasm, I cannot because we will just capitulate.

"We've got a couple of tasty fixtures coming up before Christmas, and it's an exciting time of year, there should be every reason to be upbeat."
