They’ve shown in games against the top teams this season that they are capable of competing, so we won’t be underestimating them this weekend. We go into the game with confidence and know that if we focus on what we do and play how we’re capable of playing, then hopefully, we can claim a positive result.”
Talented playmaker Billingham, who came off the bench to score in the win over Abergavenny, added: “We’ve had good results recently. After the weekend against Abergavenny, beating them 6-0, we’ll go into Sunday full of confidence. Barry are a good side, they’ve been doing well and picking up points, so it’ll be a good game. We’ve ended the year at the top of the table and we want to stay there now. It’s where we want to be.”
