Gavin Hogg believes that back-to-back home matches could be the inspiration to help Bury St Edmunds Rugby Club climb the National League Two South table.

Bury host Southend at The Haberden tomorrow (3pm), followed by the arrival of Dorking a week later.

And Hogg is seeking two positive results to put last week’s 32-18 defeat at Redingensians behind them.

“We enjoy playing at home, we believe it adds a few per cent to our performances,” said the director of rugby.

“We’ve got a few wrongs to right and hopefully we can get some home momentum going. “The two games are winnable on paper.”

But Hogg knows that the only way to secure victory is by a doing the business on the turf.

After a team meeting in midweek, he hopes his side will be re-energised when they face a Southend side also smarting after two consecutive defeats to Redingensians and Dorking.

He added: “On Tuesday we had an honest discussion as a group about our levels of consistency and performances, and what we’ve got to do to get more points and into a more comfortable league position.”
