Keylock eyes success
12:10pm Friday 1st November 2013 in Rugby
HIGH-flying Burton are not invincible, according to Malvern player-coach Alan Keylock, ahead of tomorrow’s Midlands One West rugby clash at Spring Lane (2.15pm).
The Staffordshire side have won seven out of eight matches this season and are only second to all-conquering Lichfield in the table.
However, Malvern were buoyed by last weekend’s 21-19 victory at Berkswell and Balsall, who Keylock insists are stronger than their bottom-ofthe- table position suggests.
Burton’s only defeat this term came at home to Lichfield on Saturday.
But the former Sutton Coldfield player said: “Burton are well-drilled and I know a few of the players there.
“But they are not in the same class as Lichfield and can be beaten.
“We have to ensure we play for the full 80 minutes — that is our biggest challenge.
“We have learnt from our mistakes in recent weeks and against Burton we can’t afford to give them a headstart — we need to be greedy in possession.”
