Sticker player-manager Andrew Avery in action against Dobwalls

After watching his side cement their place in second place in division one west following Saturday's 5-1 win over Bude Town, Sticker player-manager Andrew Avery is challenging his players to build some momentum and keep the pressure on runaway leaders Mousehole.

Avery's men provided the perfect response after their Cornwall Charity Cup exit at the hands of Dobwalls seven days earlier as they ran out comfortable 5-1 winners at Burngullow Park - the only game out of the premier division and division one west to survive the latest spell of bad weather at the weekend.

Sticker now enjoy a six-point cushion above third-placed Dobwalls. Saturday's win also cut Mousehole's lead to five points, though the Seagulls also have five games in hand and remain firm favourites to win the league.

Avery said: "I'm not sure if anybody can catch Mousehole, but all we can do is keep plugging away.

"We finished fourth last season and the target is to better that. We're doing well, but there's still a long way to go.

"Hopefully we can build up a bit of a run, and to finish second would be great for the club.

"We've got Holsworthy next and that's all we're thinking about."

Avery and his players will be confident of picking up another three points on Saturday away to a Holsworthy side which sits bottom of the table with just three wins this season.
