ANDREW REYNOLDSON insists Rushton’s fine win at the County Ground will mean nothing if they don’t follow it up against Wellingborough Town at Station Road tomorrow.
Reynoldson cracked an unbeaten 79 as his team enjoyed a seven-wicket success over the NCCC Academy last weekend.
And he is hoping for more of the same as Rushton target a big finish this season.
“We have some very good players at the club and for me, as a new boy here, it was great to score those runs last weekend and get a win at the County Ground,” Reynoldson said.
“Other good players have come in and we still have an overseas player to arrive as well so we believe we can do well this season.
“It would be great to say we have a chance of winning the title but we are realistic. We would love a top-three finish and get to finals day in the 20-over cup.
“Wellingborough have some good lads in their squad and, on their day, they can make life hard for anyone.
“It will be a tough test for us but we have to follow last weekend up otherwise it will all have been for nothing.”
Wellingborough skipper Ed Turnham, meanwhile, insists it is important he sticks by the young players in their squad after a disappointing five-wicket defeat to Brixworth last weekend.
And, having named an unchanged line-up for tomorrow’s clash at Station Road, Turnham is hoping the players take full advantage of another chance.
“The last couple of weeks have not been great,” Turnham said.
“It is the same problem with having that bit of inexperience in our team.
“But tomorrow is a good test for us. It is a big game against a side who are just above us.
“We aren’t making any changes and the lads have another chance to show us what they can do.
“I think it is important to stand by the youngsters. I have been there myself and it’s important we stick with them.”
