GRAHAM DAWE insists his Plymouth Albion team cannot afford to dwell on their frustrating 25-15 home defeat to Darlington Mowden Park.

The loss in horrible conditions at Brickfields brought to an end a run of three consecutive bonus point victories for his young side.

However, Albion have to pick themselves up now for a tough trip to high-flying Blackheath, who have only lost twice all season.

“There’s no point lingering, we have to move on,” said director of rugby Dawe.

“We’re just addressing a few points from the weekend.

“We have to try and make sure that if the situation happens again we don’t put ourselves too much in the corner.

“This team is developing and we’re still putting down markers. We have to learn to adapt to each situation and keep playing rugby.”

Meanwhile, Albion are still waiting for news on an injury to South African lock David Fisher.

The 22-year-old limped out of training last week with a re-occurrence of a knee problem he suffered in pre-season.
