Clevedon's Will Plummer says they will stick to their plan when they welcome Bridgwater for a top of the table clash in the West of England Premier League on Saturday.

A four-wicket win at Lansdown lifted Clevedon to the Premier One summit last weekend, as Bridgwater were beaten by Bedminster.

But only one point separates the top two ahead of their showdown at Dial Hill and Plummer  said: "I think we stick to our plans. We have a strong side out and our coach will have a game plan for us.

"If we stick to it and perform I believe we can get the win. It's still early days and it's easy to pick your favourites now, but every team in this league is a class outfit.

"Just look at the weekend's fixture between Bridgwater and Bedminster. Bottom of the league puts on 375 and wins convincingly (by 190 runs) against top. We're just taking every game one at a time."

Wickets were shared between Jack Harding (3-24), Max Horton (2-16), Jared Warner (2-35), Dan Williams (1-17), Matt Carpenter (1-24) and Jacob Lintott (1-38) as Lansdown were dismissed for 158.

But Clevedon, despite 66 from Harry Ellison, slipped to 107-6, before Will Plummer (38 not out) and Williams (21 not out) saw them to their target without further alarm.

"It's not the first time I've been out in this scenario and I have belief in the tail," added Plummer.

"Myself and Dan have fairly cool heads and four an over is easy to achieve if you stay calm.

"The togetherness of the squad is key. We dropped catches but recovered to take all 10 wickets and we stumbled in our run chase, only to recover again.

"Good sides with team spirit, fight back from losing positions and I feel we can do it again and again.

"We've had a tough opening few games, with Bath and Potterne away. I'm very positive, not looking too much further than the next game at this stage. It's a long old season still."
