STEFAN Sankala says he and his Bedwas troops are gearing up for the “biggest month” in the club’s recent history.

The Gwent side have three massive home games in succession over the next few weeks, starting tomorrow when Neath visit Bridge Field (kick-off noon).

After rock bottom Neath, regional rivals Cross Keys head to Bedwas, with Llanelli travelling east on March 8 – all three opponents are involved in the battle to beat the drop.

Defeat to Cardiff last time out has left Bedwas four points from guaranteed safety in the Principality Premiership table.

Llanelli, away to Newport tonight, occupy the first safe spot, one point in front of Bridgend, who would go into a play-off with the winners of the Championship if things stayed as they were.

Keys sit below Bridgend but with the same number of points, while Bedwas are three points further back, 12 clear of Bargoed and 27 ahead of Neath.

And while Neath are all but down, head coach Sankala knows Bedwas must not take their focus off picking up a bonus-point victory tomorrow.

“We’ve got Neath, Cross Keys and Llanelli at home in our next three games,” he said. “This is the biggest month Bedwas have had in the last 15 years.

“We were supposed to play Neath at home in December, but they called it off because of what was going on there behind the scenes.

“We would have been playing them at their weakest, but they are not the whipping boys anymore and we’ve got to be at our best.

“I was quite bitter when they didn’t fulfil the fixture because we would have been looking at five points.

“Now they’ve got a few more players in and it won’t be easy.”

He added: “The next month is critical because we’re playing teams around us.”
