On Saturday, eighth-placed Hallam continued their recent excellent run of form with a 2-0 home win over second-placed Nostell Miners Welfare. On Wednesday night, the Countrymen travel to West Street and a thrilling-looking clash with the leaders in Toolstation NCEL Division One, Winterton Rangers –and the Sandygate Management trio head east anticipating a close , high-calibre game in a re-run of one of last season’s more memorable encounters in S10 , writes Colin Muncie.
Joint Manager Stephen Whitehead told TBG “Again it’s another tough challenge against a team that sit top of our table -and are there for a reason. We will go to their place, give them the respect that they deserve as they have started the season really well; but we also are in a rich vein of form and will be looking to carry that on”.
“It’s got the makings of another great game and another good advert for our League”.
Joint Manager Scott Bates is hoping to carry on the good work from last weekend’s win over Nostell. “It’s another massive game and a tough mid week away trip. After a great result on Saturday we have to keep our feet on the ground, and go and work hard again- you get nothing given to you in games like these. I hope we can improve on our final balls in last third “.
“It’s a game to look forward to – hopefully it will be a good one.”
Assistant Manager Dean Bamforth hasn’t forgotten his side’s thrilling 4-3 comeback win when the sides met in Sheffield back in March. “We had a real ding dong with Winterton at ours last year” he recalled “and I can’t see any reason why Wednesday will be different. Both teams have match winners in them.”
“We’re in great form of late -and looking forward to going to the League leaders with nothing to fear.
