MARTINSTOWN captain Sam Kershaw has his sights locked on “20 points” in the Villagers’ pivotal Dorset Funeral Plan Premier League relegation clash with Stalbridge at Lower Ashton Farm tomorrow (1pm).

Martinstown and Stalbridge have been chained in an exclusive battle to avoid the drop for much of the season, with Kershaw’s men holding a 31-point gap to the bottom side with four games left.

Victory would virtually hand the Villagers safety while a loss would still guarantee an 11-point buffer at least – but Kershaw is keen to be ruthless at a ground they are winless on this campaign.

He told Echosport: “That’s the main aim – 20 points. There’s not really a lot to say, we know what we’ve got to do.

“It’s a big game and a lot hinges on this going forward. It can either take the pressure off for the last couple of games or put the pressure on us.

“It’s a game everyone wants to play, everyone’s up for it and everyone knows the role they play on the day. It’s in our hands.

“It would be nice to get that home win – there’s no better time than now to get it.”

Martinstown, who are near full strength, make two changes as Matt Camp and Fraser Hill replace Mike Kennedy-Barnard and Charlie Durant.

Martinstown: Nichols, S Williams, G Pope, Kershaw, Herbert, Ja Stewart, W Maltby, Hill, Chase, Camp, Read
