A win, three points, and up to fourth in the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division for Hemsworth Miners Welfare after their 4-2 home win over Harrogate Railway Athletic at the Yorkshire NuBuilds yesterday afternoon-but Wells Manager Wayne Benn felt that his side’s performance left something to be desired, writes Colin Muncie.
Joshua Underwood stunned the 119-strong crowd with a third-minute opener for Rail, but the home side had turned the game round by the interval thanks to Nash Connolly (17 minutes) and Andrew Higgins (21). Back came Harrogate, and Sean Hunter tied the game up early in the second period, but Hemsworth sealed three points late on thanks to Luke Danville (80) and Brad Dockerty (81).
Wayne doesn’t feel that his players have hit their stride yet. He told the Bootiful Game “I’m pleased to have won today but I’m far from happy with the performance. The lads did what I asked them to do, in terms of winning the game and putting Wednesday to bed; however it was a really poor performance by us, if I’m honest. I don’t want to take away from Harrogate’s performance but I have to concentrate on my own team and again we weren’t good enough. We got away with it today but that won’t be good enough in the upcoming games and we have to get our act together -and quickly”.
Wayne felt that Hemsworth only showed their true potential in short periods.”Today was painful to watch for me” he admitted.” We have only really showed our quality for twenty minutes in the first half and fifteen minutes in the second and that simply isn’t good enough. Important players for us are massively under par, and we have a had a tough run where injuries so early in the season are biting; but the good thing is that we have won 3 from 4 and there is much more to come from us which gives me confidence. A full week until our next game gives us an opportunity to get a couple of players fit who will make a difference to us,
“We will have a good week’s training and look forward to game next Saturday away at Albion Sports.”
