LECHLADE will be looking to regain winning ways when Chipping Sodbury visit the Manor Ground today.

Glos/Wilts division leaders Lechlade make just one change to the side that lost at Biddestone last weekend with wicket keeper Sam Burdock coming in for the injured Paul Godding.

Burdock, who has been out of the side since suffering a hand injury at Tewkesbury three weeks ago, has had to wait for his return to the first team but scored a century for the seconds last Saturday.

Lechlade coach Luke Sellers said: “The selection process has been very difficult over the last few weeks.

“With the team winning and availability very good those pushing for places within the squad are having to wait for an opportunity and in recent weeks this has been generally down to injury. Sam (Burdock) had to rest a hand injury and it has taken a shoulder injury to Paul (Godding) for Sam to regain his place in the first team.”

Captain Joe Breet admitted that last Saturday’s result was disappointing but the fact that Lechlade got so close when playing poorly was a positive.

“We need to put last week behind us and make sure we have no further slip-ups,” said Breet.

“Last week’s defeat and our other loss to Swindon shows that any team in our division on their day can beat any of the others. This Saturday will be no different and we have to concentrate fully on each of the remaining games if we are to win the title this season.”

Chipping Sodbury find themselves currently in the relegation zone and they will be looking to further dent Lechlade’s title hopes and ease their own relegation fears.
