Just two points outside that coveted sixth place in Toolstation NCEL Division One , form team and goal machine (could become a song? ) Hallam welcome Rossington Main (12th) to Sandygate tomorrow night –and the Three Amigos occupying the Countrymen’s Technical Area aren’t getting ahead of themselves , writes Colin Muncie.
Joint manager Steven Whitehead is delighted with his side’s recent form “We’re looking forward to getting the lads back out there, as we’ve hit a real purple patch of form and with the games coming thick and fast ,we’re looking forward to the next game. Winning breads confidence and the lads deserve all the credit for the recent winning run. We’re taking it one game at a time and just trying to concentrate on getting the three points in front of us on that given game”.
“Hopefully we’ll get them after half past nine on Tuesday night”.
Joint Manager Scott Bates is determined that his players don’t take anything for granted “The games coming thick and fast now” he told us “all we can do is prepare right, don’t get above our station and take each game as it comes, and give each opponent the full respect they deserve.”
“We have a big squad -and I am sure we will use it”.
Assistant Manager Dean Bamforth is likely to be betting on a goalless draw, but is keen to avenge a home FA Vase defeat to Main back in September. He told us “We’ve got a hectic fortnight coming up starting with Rosso on Tuesday; it’s another tough game. They’ve shelled some goals lately and we’re scoring for fun so get it down as a nil-nil! Joking aside we’re at home and confidence is high; the team talks get harder as the lads have been superb recently. We’ve also got three back from injury as well.
“When we played them in the cup replay we were awful -so we’ll be looking to amend that”.
