DUDLEY Kingswinford maintained their lead at the top of Midlands One West with victory over Camp Hill last Saturday.

DK bagged a solid 36-0 success a Heathbrook to stay three points ahead of second-placed Burton, who picked up a win of their own at Hereford.

Director of rugby Neil Shillingford admits his side weren't at their fluid best but was pleased to secure another bonus-point win.

He said: "It was very much a case of job done.

"It wasn't our best performance of the season but conditions weren't great and the pitch cut up a little, which is unlike our place.

"I think there was an element of coming off the back of two very big games and not keeping that intensity.

"We had picked up a few knocks over the last few weeks too and that meant training wasn't as good as it could have been and that was maybe reflected during the game.

"But we did the job in the first half and it was then a case of seeing it out.

"We changed the mindset again and were chancing the bonus point. We achieved that and also chipped away at the point difference between us and Burton."

DK now turn their attention to this Saturday's trip to Worcester.

The game is the start of three successive away matches that will also see visits to Stoke and Hereford.

Shillingford added: "The players are their worst critics and the things we are picking out of the Camp Hill performance is us being hyper-critical. It does give us a few little things to work on this week but the main thing is that we got the job done and can now look ahead to another tough game.

"Worcester are a better side at home and it'll be a similar game to Camp Hill. They will try and disrupt what we do and we'll have to combat that.

"All we can do is keep winning and that keeps the pressure on those below us. As the pitches improve it will hopefully suit our style of play towards the business end of the season."

DK will still be without Matt Squire and Arran Hudson as they go through the concussion procedure while Luke Greenwood will remain sidelined with an ankle injury.

Ryan Smithemann will return to training this week following a hamstring problem.
