Evesham manager says: "Merthyr won't win the league"
following Evesham's 2-1 victory over Taunton in the Calor Gas League, current manager Shaun Cunnigton stated that Merthyr T do not have it in themselves to win the league this season. In his press conference at the Jubilee stadium, he said "I think that all the pressure will eventually get to them and they will not be able to sustain their current form in the league". He went on to say "They have failed in getting promoted for the past two seasons and I think the expectation is too high for them to cope with".
Evesham are still unbeaten in the league and it appears that they will be mounting a title challenge of their own however history is not on their side. They have never been able to gain promotion straight after being relegated however Cunningham remains adamant that his side can win the league themselves claiming "We obviously have quality in our squad and we all know that we are capable of winning the league. It's just down to the players to show it on the pitch."
