AFTER failing to win at all during January, Knutsford’s rugby players hope a new month brings with it better luck.

Blues lost four successive matches, leaving them seventh in the North West Intermediate League Division Three South standings.

A trip to Carrington, three points back in ninth, follows on Saturday, kick-off 2.15pm.

Knutsford will be motivated to avenge a narrow 24-20 defeat at the Academy when the teams met previously this season back in October.

“We’ve used the time since our last match to iron out the crinkles in our game,” said coach Chris Edmonds.
