EVESHAM United manager Matt Clarke says his side is relishing the challenge of tomorrow’s relegation clash at Arlesey Town (3pm).

One point from their last two games, coupled with three wins in a row for Arlesey, has dropped the Robins into the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division drop-zone.

They are level on points with tomorrow’s fifth-from-bottom opponents and desperate to rediscover the form that saw them go four games unbeaten prior to last Saturday’s 1-1 draw against St Albans City and Tuesday’s 3-1 defeat at Stour-bridge.

Clarke said: “We are relishing the prospect of going to Arlesey and hopefully coming away with three points.

“They have hit a good vein of form but we believe we have enough to get a win. They will probably be fav-ourites going into the game so we will be underdogs, which suits us.”

However, Evesham’s battle for survival has not been helped by the news that str-iker Ben Pugh will miss the rest of the season with a torn hamstring.

The former Nuneaton player, who has scored four goals since signing at the turn of the year, has been struggling with the injury in recent weeks and last played in the St Albans draw.

Defender Henry Eze is also missing as he serves the second game of a three-match ban.

United need cover and are giving trials to Forest Green Rovers’ Cayman Islands international duo Luigi Hernandez, a defender, and forward Theron Wood.
