LONDON Welsh assistant coach Gordon Ross says they will be hard pressed to make it a perfect ten at Bedford today.

The Greene King IPA Championship leaders are seeking a tenth win in a row against opponents they beat on the opening day.

“Bedford are an extremely proud team,” said Ross.

“We have to make sure we are up for it as it could possibly be our toughest game yet.

“The message is that we are always looking to improve. We don’t want to settle with what we have.”

After today Welsh face Edinburgh Academicals twice in the British & Irish Cup, which is less of a priority for the club.

“We may give the guys a couple of days off next week if they are lucky, but now the focus is just on Bedford,” said Ross.

Although they have always played to their potential, leaders Welsh can be very pleased with their efforts in the league so far.

“We didn’t really know what to expect,” said Ross.

“There was a massive change of personnel, both on and off the pitch.

“There were 20 players who came in.

“You have got to give huge credit to Justin Burnell for what he has done here.

“The biggest challenge is to keep that momentum going.”
