‘Last week was very frustrating for us and probably the rest of the league. It’s always worse when you are on a good run of form and games get called off, just as your hoping to capitalise on it. At present we are falling further behind on games, with us having 5 games in hand on some clubs. We managed to arrange a friendly Wednesday to give some players minutes and take a look at a couple of others. It was a useful exercise.
We travel to Nelson tomorrow, whom I firmly believe now lie in false position with the excellent signings they have made. They have a good blend of use and experience who hit teams with quick direct approach play. They have upset teams such as Atherton Colls at home so will be a force to be reckoned with. The players will have to approach the game with the same attitude as they did at Stockport County. We also hope to include a new signing in the squad who will definitely strengthen us and is well known to the blues faithful.
Hopefully we will see the “firm” in full force to cheer the lads on Saturday. C’mon you blues! – Lee
