WELLINGTON manager Mike Hawes is hoping his side can kick-start their season as they begin a run of eight home games in their next ten.

Wellington have won just once in the league this season and begin an unusual run of home fixtures tomorrow with a tough game against fourth-placed Ashton and Backwell – and Hawes is hoping home advantage can help to get the season up and running.

He said: “Saturday will be tough against Ashton, they’ve just beaten Clevedon in the cup and are one of the tougher sides. But we’ve got a good run of games now and hope that can help us get things going.

“We obviously need to get some wins under our belts and this is a great opportunity.”

Wellington will be without Andy Butler, who is struggling with a hamstring injury.
