WELLINGTON will be looking for back-to-back victories at the Athletic Ground on Saturday when they play bottom side Burnham on Sea in Regional Two South West (3p.m.), writes Barry Knott.

Having beaten North Petherton in their last game at home a fortnight ago, despite being down to 14 men for almost the entire match, Wellington face a Burnham side who have won only two matches all season.

Wellington's head coach Graham Dawe said this week: "Burnham have a big set of forwards - rather like Petherton - and will try to deny us ball.

"But we played well enough against Petherton to know that we can deal with this and finish the season with a victory."

He added: "Looking back on the season, I think we have run some of the top sides close, especially at home. I believe there is plenty of potential in the side.

"We have lost games this season by fine margins and there are things we can work on. We certainly could have been more clinical when we've had scoring chances."

Alex Davey, the side's regular kicker, will be 'back in the mix' after missing the game against Petherton but Wellington are likely to be without outside centre Billy Brooks who was harshly sent off against Petherton.

"We're hoping that the sending off might be sufficient but he may have to miss three games," said Dawe.

Wellington 2nd XV will also be in action on Saturday when they play away to Burnham's second string in Counties Three Somerset South. They beat Burnham 34-12 at home on the first day of the season.

Rugby continues at the Athletic Ground tomorrow week with Cullompton providing the opposition in the Papa Johns KO Cup.

Cullompton play in the same division as Wellington and will finish in a creditable fifth place, regardless of the results of Saturday's games.

Wellington and Cullompton have played each other twice this season with the score is 1-1. Welington lost 44-10 away but gained revenge with a dour 10-5 home victory in early February. It was one of Wellington's best defensive displays of the season.

Meanwhile, Wiveliscombe will also want to win their last match at home to Kingsbridge in Counties One Western West on Saturday to avoid finishing in the bottom Three.

They have the same number of points as third from bottom Bideford but are above the North Devon side on points difference. Bideford complete their season with an away match against Bude who have also struggled this season.

Wiveliscombe 2nd XV end their season in Counties Three Somerset South with an away game against Somerton in Counties Three Somerset South. The sides drew 17-17 on the first day of the new season.
