Three absolutely vital points for sixth-placed Glasshoughton Welfare when they beat FC Bolsover, in twentieth and five points clear of the relegation places in a tough Toolstation NCEL Division One encounter at Langwith Road-and Glassy’s Joint Manager Lee Vigars was delighted to take the spoils back to Castleford although he felt his players were a little wasteful in front of goal, writes Colin Muncie.
A crowd of 36 looked on as Conor Glavin (6 minutes) gave the visitors a half time lead ; and Glavin scored again after 65 minutes clinch the points. That makes 11 goals in Glavin’s last seven games making him one of the form league players.
Lee told the Bootiful Game “We asked for a reaction from our lads today and we got it. FC Bolsover are fighting for their lives, and right from the off they got into our faces and gave us no time on the ball. But credit to the lads, they withstood the early pressure and then took control of the game. Conor Glavin has scored another couple of goals and could have had at least a couple more. As a team we’ve missed a bagful of chances this afternoon which wasn’t great but the fact we were creating them in the first place bodes well.
Lee now looks forward to a season-defining few days, starting at Ollerton Town on Monday night “It’s a massive week for us with three more games coming up within the next six days” he explained.
“That will be extremely difficult, so it was important to pick up maximum points today -and we did”.
FC Bolsover Joint Manager Adam Valente felt his team looked much better after the break and could have taken a point.” We’re disappointed not to get something from the game. I thought that after a poor first half and a stern talking to at half time we came out the better side, but missing chances and not putting them away killed us. We can’t start as poorly as we did and give the opposition a start”
“We move on to Tuesday’s game now (away at Selby Town)”
