London Scottish skipper Mark Bright is desperate for his side to return to winning ways on Sunday when Ealing Trailfinders visit the Athletic Ground in a Greene King IPA Championship clash, kick-off 12.30pm.

The Scots have lost their last two away matches but enjoy an impressive home league record this season having tasted defeat just once, by a single point, to Rotherham Titans back in October.

Victory is vital if London Scottish harbour hopes of catching Rotherham Titans in the race for the play-offs.

Bright, who scored his tenth Greene King IPA Championship try of the season at Leeds Carnegie last weekend, said: “We need to go on a winning run starting this Sunday if we want to push for the top four.

“Losing to Rotherham Titans and Leeds Carnegie in successive games has been a real blow to the squad but I think the manner of the defeat to a very good Leeds side last Sunday has proved to the boys they can compete against anyone in this league.

“It was fine margins in both matches but we lost nevertheless which makes this Sunday a must win.”

Bumper deal for England v Wales ticket holders

Scottish have beaten Ealing Trailfinders twice so far this season but Kiwi Bright expects a stern challenge on Sunday in the derby clash.

He added: “I think Ealing have been getting better as the season has gone on and they can be a threat to anyone on their day.

“We secured a bonus point win in the last two games and it's something we'll target again.

“But first we need to get the win, then try and target four tries.”

London Scottish is offering England fans the opportunity to watch their lunchtime derby clash against Ealing Trailfinders on Sunday, March 9 for just £10 before heading to Twickenham Stadium for the RBS 6 Nations match between England v Wales (kick-off 3pm).

All fans need to do is present their Six Nations ticket at the gate at Richmond Athletic Ground for this Greene King IPA Championship match, which kicks off at 12.30pm.

£10 admission gets you a terrace ticket with access to the canteen and bar.
