Redruth are going for their third win on the bounce as they travel to Clifton.

The Reds coach is hoping they will climb the league table this year.

Steve Larkins tells Pirate FM the team need to believe they can beat good sides away from home.

He says the home side strong and it will be a challenge.

He said: "It has been a pretty good Christmas period for us, we had the draw to the Cornish All Blacks, then we beat Camborne in the traditional Boxing Day game, then we won on Saturday. We are on the up and looking forward to the new year, it begins on Saturday against Clifton who are notoriously a good side at home.

"We have improved week on week, from the start of the season we are now a much better team than we were in September. I think the team are understanding how we want to play. We are looking forward to the challenges of 2015 and I think with the way the fixtures are aligned we can climb up the table as well."

The Cornish Pirates are heating things up as they take on one of the top league teams.

They are away to Worcester land hoping for their third win on the bounce.

Our guys are currently sixth in the table and the home side second.

Director of Rugby Ian Davies said: "We are pretty decimated with injuries in the front five. Three players out for the season, three awaiting scan results, the players who could cover also out for a couple of weeks and then Charlie Davey rolls his ankle in training yesterday meaning a period on the sidelines for him too. I'm just relieved we aren't playing three of the strongest sides in the Championship....oh hang on!

"The two victories over the festive period were vital for us as the remainder of the month will be a challenge, but it's an exciting challenge. It's a chance for us to measure progress and also for us to maybe put a marker down for the rest of the season."

Elsewhere Launceston welcome the Dings Crusaders.

They are going in strong after a 19-9 win over Shelford last week.

Now they are hoping to get another win under their belt.
