KENNY Redmond is calling on his Oxford City Stars side to avoid complacency when they take on basement boys Lee Valley Lions today.

The English National League South Division 2 leaders travel to London bidding to make it 18 wins in 19 matches.

In contrast, Lee Valley are yet to record a victory, having lost all 17 matches this campaign.

But head coach Redmond, whose side beat Cardiff Fire 8-1 last weekend, is cautious of taking this evening’s opponents lightly.

He said: “Every game is a challenge and there will be no room for complacency.

“It’s important we are focused, organised and work hard in every period.

“We trained hard on Wednesday and worked on areas we identified from Sunday’s game that we believe we can improve on as a group and are looking forward to Lee Valley.

“What’s important now is maintaining good levels of intensity as we start to enter the business end of the season.”

Stars will, once again be able to call on captain Darren Elliott, who scored on his return from a knee injury last weekend.

Josh Oliver has recovered (illness), but Dax Hedges and Josh Florey are still sidelined.

Meanwhile, the format for the league’s play-offs has been announced.

The top eight sides will qualify for the first round, which will be played over two legs, with the winners advancing to a finals weekend at John Nike Leisuresport in Bracknell on April 21-22.

If they finish top of the league, Stars would face the eighth-placed team in the opening stage.
