BENHALL boss Carl Wilkins is looking for his team to kick-start their league campaign with a win over TRIMLEY RED DEVILS this weekend.

The Badgers have lost their opening two Senior Division league games - 0-3 to Coplestonians and 1-4 to Henley - but Wilkins is confident his side can put points on the board sooner rather than later.

"We haven't started as we would've liked," said Wilkins.

"We were unlucky - in a lot of ways - to lose both games so heavily, but we definitely need a reaction this weekend.

"Trimley are a good, competitive side who did the double over us last season so we will have to be at our best to beat them."
