BUILTH Wells host Ammanford on Saturday with time running out to save their Swalec Division One West Central status.

The Bulls have seven games remaining to save themselves from the drop and go into the weekend eight points away from 10th placed Kenfig Hill and safety.

The Bulls have scored the least points in the division while conceding the second highest number and coach Nick Howells accepted his squad had to improve.

However with time running out the Bulls coach backed his players to step up to the plate and set the tone for the remainder of the season against Ammanford.

“The Ammanford game is massive really,” said Howells. “A game we must win.

“We have had some very stern training sessions which hopefully will change the attitude of the team and I will be expecting a committed and disciplined display on Saturday.”

“Ammanford are not in great form at this moment but we must be on our A game next week as we must look to get something from this game. All the lads know the importance.”

However Howells has looked back at the history books and highlighted past instances when the Bulls left relegation battles to the wire with the Bulls traditionally coming good after Christmas.

While such an upturn in fortune has not materialised so far this season with just three wins all campaign, Howells backed his players to repay his faith and the support of the Groe faithful.

“I always believe in our players ability to perform and come out fighting when we have our backs to the wall,” said Howells. “Every game now is a cup final.”

The Bulls complete their programme with a trip to Trebanos followed by a home clash with Ystalyfera before visiting Seven Sisters and making the trip to Kenfig Hill.

The Bulls final game of the season is at home to champions elect Bonymaen on May 6.
