TEAM manager Neil Shardlow has set his sights on victory at Shropshire in Wiltshire’s final game of the Unicorns Championship season as he looks for positivity out of a below-par summer.

After starting the three-day format with a draw and a victory, Wiltshire have since lost three games on the spin and are down in third from bottom in the table.

Consistency has been a big issue for the county in recent matches as they have been unable to put together a strong performance for three days in a row.

Skipper Ed Young takes his side to Shropshire on Sunday for their final contest and victory there would lift Wiltshire above their hosts.

After back-to-back home defeats, most recently at the hands of Cheshire a fortnight ago, Shardlow says ending the year on an upbeat note would at least provide them with something to work with over the winter.

“There are a number of players that are probably not in the best of form at present and they are struggling to find it. I think that is affecting the squad as a whole,” said Shardlow.

“We have got one game to play and it is about pride for us now and going out and trying to put the rest of the season behind us. We have to go up to Shropshire and try to get a result.

“We were really disappointed that we lost again in the last game. We just didn’t play well enough over the three days but we just have to move on. We have now put all of our attentions on the final game and I think we could go there and quite easily match them, if we are on form.”
