Lakeside Hammers boss Will Pottinger has urged his side to keep enjoying themselves as they head to Berwick on Saturday (7pm).

The Hammers have enjoyed a stunning start to their campaign to secure top spot in their Championship Shield group and will now search for more league points.

They will be without Adam Ellis due to a European Championship qualifier, but Pottinger reckons they can still come away with a win with Ulrich Ostergaard called up to guest.

Pottinger said: “With the way we’re going, everyone is having fun and looking forward to meetings, so we’re hoping to keep that going this weekend.

“Berwick had a good win last weekend so they’re going to have a lot of confidence, but we’re looking to pick up where we left off.

“We unfortunately will be without Adam Ellis which is a blow, but we’ve got Ulrich Ostergaard in who I’m sure will do a good job.

“It’s a long trip but we want to come back with another win under our belts and I believe we’re more than capable of doing that.”

Berwick: Aaron Summers, Kevin Doolan, John Lindman, David Howe, Nikolaj Busk Jakobsen, Jye Etheridge, Dany Gappmaier.

Hammers: Nick Morris, Ben Morley, Ulrich Ostergaard, Kyle Newman, Richard Lawson, Zach Wajtknecht, Alfie Bowtell.
