Bury St Edmunds captain Tom Huggins has urged his squad to keep their East Anglian Premier League destiny in their own hands by taking a step towards securing survival with victory over Burwell tomorrow (10.30am).

The Victory Ground-based outfit welcome high-flying Burwell in their penultimate fixture, currently sitting 30 points ahead of bottom-placed rivals Sudbury, who host Saffron Walden, the side Bury claimed a general draw with last time out.

And with the prospect of victory all but sealing his side’s place in the league next year, Huggins is well aware of the importance of a convincing win over their third-placed opponents.

“There is a very good chance that if we can pick up a win then we are pretty much safe,” he said,”

“We are pretty confident of being able to do just that but we can’t get carried away, we just need to make sure we are at our best.

“It is important for us to be able to keep our destiny in our own hands and a victory would allow us to do that.

“We have players in form at the moment and we will be going all out for the win against Burwell.

“Having home advantage will play a big part as well and when we are in form we are confident of beating anyone.

“No-one at the club wants to have to take it down to the last week and have to rely on having to win.

“We have had a change in game plan and mentality and it has worked well.”
