We’re in a little sticky patch at the moment having taken just one point from the last three games and the test of how good we are, is how we respond. Every team has ups and downs through the season, Salford took two points from four games over Christmas, but have since won their last two games, so we won’t get carried away. In two of the three games, we played well and we know that if we can maintain a consistent level of performance results over the longer term will come good.
We are working hard behind the scenes to strengthen the squad. Injuries to Mark Ross and Wayne Brooksby last weekend have left us low on numbers, but as a manager I’ve never spent money for the sake of it. We’ll make sure we bring the right characters in to the club, who will improve the team and fit in to the dressing room. If that means being patient and waiting for the right ones, that’s what we’ll do.
This weekend we welcome Dave Frecklington and his Gainsborough Trinity team. Gainsborough have had an up and down season and currently sit in the relegation places but with games in hand could easily be up in mid table, so we will not be underestimating them. They have spent a few quid as the season has progressed and they have some talented and experienced players at this level, so as I seem to say every week, we must be on top of our game to get a result.
Enjoy the match
