Myler optimistic ahead of Bristol clash

Date published: January 4 2017

Saints have an opportunity to get closer to the top four when they face Bristol in the Premiership on Saturday, says Stephen Myler.

Northampton have won their last two games against Sale Sharks and Gloucester respectively. They currently sit in sixth place with 28 points, nine behind Bath who are fourth.

Saints will take on a Bristol side who have also managed to win their last two games with surprising victories over Worcester and Sale.

“It will be a tough test,” Myler told the Northampton Chronicle.

“Bristol have got a couple of wins in succession, like ourselves, so we need to take confidence from what we’ve done in the past couple of weeks and really put our marker down when Bristol come to our place. It’s another opportunity for us to push on back towards the top four.

“It’s exciting and we’re looking forward to it.”
