TITANS coach Justin Burnell says his side will have to be on top form if they are to win this weekend's basement battle with Bedford.
The clubs are both struggling at the wrong end of the Championship but without any relegation fears following the demise of London Welsh.
But Burnell says that shouldn't detract from what he believes will be an entertaining clash, especially with players needing to impress to secure new contracts.
“There are some tough old games ahead starting with Bedford this weekend,” he added.
“They are another side that shouldn’t really be where they are and they’ve gone from play-off a few years ago to struggling at the wrong end.
“But, as always, it will be a hard game against them. They play an exciting brand of rugby and it should be good to watch.”
