Vigars taking away plenty of positives after arm wrestle stalemate

Last word on yesterday’s thrilling stalemate at the TJ’s Travel Arena goes to Glasshoughton Welfare Joint Manager Lee Vigars, who’s home side played out an entertaining and competitive goalless stalemate with Play-Off rivals Winterton Rangers, leaving the sides eighth and seventh respectively in Toolstation NCEL Division One –and Lee wasn’t grumbling too much at another point for his side, writes Colin Muncie.

Lee told the Bootiful Game “I think the best way to describe tonight‘s game is to say it was a fiercely contested match- up between two sides that just weren’t prepared to be beaten! It was a real arm wrestle, with defences definitely on top throughout. Neither keeper had a notable save to make but rather than criticising the attacking players you have to credit both defences. As we knew beforehand, Winterton were extremely well organised and switched from a 3-5-2 with the ball to a 5-3-2 without it which really hampered us going forward. We talked at half time about pressing higher and trying to make the pitch wider but it was so difficult tonight

Lee felt his back line were worthy of special mention” Sam Pashley, along with our other defenders , has played well” Lee told us “and we thought we could have  nicked it late-on when a Tom Carr header found Mitch Wilshere clear -but he just couldn’t find the power to beat the Rangers keeper.

 “All in all, it was a good point against a good side -so we’ll definitely take plenty of positives from the performance and look forward to Brigg Town on Saturday”.
