BEDWAS chief Stefan Sankala says his players won’t get away with being as profligate in attack against Gwent rivals Ebbw Vale tomorrow (kick-off 2.30pm) as they were at Neath last weekend.

Sankala’s charges will look to clear the next hurdle in their bid for Principality Premiership survival when they make the short trip to Eugene Cross Park to face Greg Woods’ Steelmen.

Bedwas picked up a bonus point in beating Neath 28-3, but the Bridge Field outfit spurned a host of try-scoring opportunities through their inaccuracy in the final third.

Despite failing to take advantage of those chances, a five-point haul kept Bedwas’ hopes of avoiding relegation to the Championship alive.

With three games to go, Bedwas are 12th, one point behind Llanelli, who have played one match more, and seven ahead of Bridgend, who have two fixtures in hand.

The bottom four go down automatically – Neath are already relegated – while the team finishing 12th will meet Championship winners Pontypool in a play-off to determine their fate.

“It was quite a frustrating afternoon against Neath,” said Sankala.

“It was one of those where we dominated the first 30 minutes and should’ve come away with six or seven tries.

“We were completely inaccurate and Neath found an ability to frustrate us throughout the rest of the game.

“We picked up five points, which was the goal, but it was still very frustrating.

“Our approach play was fairly decent, and we created opportunities, but we just didn’t execute when it mattered.

“It became a bit of a dogfight and Neath found themselves still in the game when we should have been out of sight.”

He added: “We know we can’t waste chances against Ebbw Vale, and that’s exactly what the message has been to the players this week.

“Accuracy in our approach play and creating chances will count for nothing if we don’t come away with some points.

“Ebbw are extremely well-drilled under Greg Woods and any opportunity we get against them we have to take, otherwise we’ll come away with our tails between our legs.”

Tomorrow’s game is a final Gwent derby of the regular season for both, and Sankala doesn’t expect any help from the Steelmen as Bedwas continue their fight to stay in the top flight.

“This derby has got something extremely important on it,” said Sankala.

“Ebbw are looking to finish as the top Gwent side, and I can’t see them doing us any favours.”

Ebbw are fourth in the table with three matches left.
