Diss Rugby Club head coach Roger Coombs believes his side stand a good chance of gaining promotion from London Two North East this season.

The Mackenders-based outfit sit just two points adrift of table topping Chelmsford ahead of hosting fellow promotion chasers Rochford Hundred tomorrow (2pm).

After seeing his side progress in the RFU Intermediate Cup, Coombs is confident of building on momentum despite suggesting just last month his side were not ready for the step up.

“It was a really good win on Saturday and now we need to go and win again this weekend,” he said. “We definitely have 
a good chance of promotion and in my eyes there is a big possibility it will happen.”
