MATT Williams is calling on his Chinnor side to find consistency in National League 1.
The Thame-based club welcome Canterbury to Kingsey Road on Saturday after a frustrating opening eight games.
Chinnor have won as many matches as they have lost in the third tier and sit ninth in the table.
But they are only seven points behind second-placed Rosslyn Park in what is proving to be another hotly-contested campaign.
Director of rugby Williams is hoping Chinnor can turn a corner this weekend.
He said: “It’s been a frustrating start to the season, there’s no two ways about it.
“Every game we’ve lost, we could’ve won. We could be looking at a very different eight games, but we’re not – we’ve won four and lost four.
“The beauty of that is it takes the monkey off our back and allows us to move forward without the pressure of people talking about us.
“What we’ve got to do is build consistency.
“This is a great league and I think the team that will finish top will be the one that finds consistency the quickest, because anyone can beat anyone.”
Canterbury head to Thame still searching for their first win.
But Williams stressed the Kent-based side will not be taken lightly.
He said: “We have to take each game week by week.
“I appreciate that’s a massive cliché, but it’s true to this league.
“Each week Canterbury have taken a step forward and put in a better performance.
“At some point they’re going to break their duck and the key is to make sure it’s not at Kingsey Road this weekend.”
