All Golds coach Steve McCormack said: “We still have massive improvements left in us as individuals and as a team, and we’re looking at continuing our current form on Sunday.”
Perkins said: “Six or eight weeks ago we might have been favourites for this game, but that’s probably not the case now.
“Gloucestershire have had fantastic results against York and Hunslet, and Steve (McCormack) has done great things down there.
“But the pressure’s on them now. They’ve put in a couple of good performances and they’ll be looking to back that up, but we’re not that far off ourselves.”
