Note that this fixture is subject to a 10 am pitch inspection
Howard was pleased with what he saw despite that 4-2 Muglet Lane defeat on Thursday, but he’s not expecting the Ontario Road playing surface to be at its best today if the fixture goes ahead. He told the Bootiful Game “The boys all put a good night’s shift in against Maltby in horrible conditions. We dominated possession for large parts of the game only to be picked off at crucial moments. Hopefully, it’ll be back to winning ways against Staveley -but the pitch will be a pudding; only 10 games left (quarter of the season)”.
Howard provided some upbeat news about the Bottesford weather. “There’s been a mention of blue sky today- I wish people would stop spreading these rumours “ he told us .”Still, we’ve got Craig Bridge to keep us amused with his alternative comedy. I can honestly say he’s the funniest plumber we’ve got in the squad. UP THE BOTTY “
