DROITWICH are heading in the right direction after ending a run of four consecutive league defeats, says director of rugby Adam Drew.

The Monners have endured a tough start to life in Midlands One West since their promotion but their winless run was brought to an end on Saturday with a 19-19 stalemate at home to Hereford.

Sam O’Brien, Chris Hooper and Tom Lawley got the tries while Bobby Scott-Walker and Hooper kicked a conversion each as Droitwich moved off the foot of the table.

“Hereford are a well established side in this league and I thought we matched them really well,” said Drew.

“We had a few key players coming back which helped and I think Saturday showed we are heading in the right direction.

“The performances are getting better and better which bodes well going forward.

“Once we get that first win I am sure we will be fine.

“I have no fears of being in this division because the squad we have got can compete and can compete well.

“It’s all about getting that first win to build some momentum.”

Droitwich will be looking for that first win on Saturday when they travel to basement boys Longton.

“This is the kind of game where we must be coming away with a win,” said Drew.

“There are no easy games in this division but we cannot afford to take them lightly and I am sure they won’t be taking us lightly either.

“No team is beat until the final whistle so it’s important we play at our best on Saturday.”
