17th-placed Thackley host relegation threatened Parkgate on Saturday – and are winless in five games – their worse run for since the turn of the year.
Joint Manager Patrick McGuire knows it will be a tough afternoon for The Dennyboys. “We’ve not been getting any luck recently but we have to wear that and knuckle down and earn our wins the hard way. Parkgate will come here sniffing blood after looking at our recent results but we’ll be looking to turn the corner and put a little run of wins together in order to finish the season strongly.
“Unavailability has been a pain in the backside of late, particularly due to us being unable to keep the same team each week, but we expect near enough a full compliment of players back on Saturday and Mike and I will be looking closely at who shows the drive and tenacity required to drag us out of this little rut we’re in.”
