Morris anticipates tough Ollerton challenge

Worsborough Bridge Athletic might have lost that home Toolstation NCEL Division One humdinger to Grimsby Borough at Park Road last weekend- and exited the Sheffield and Hallamshire Senior Cup at the Second Round stage in midweek- but Briggers Manager Lee Morris isn’t waving any white flags around anytime soon. His side remain an impressive fourth in the table, and head to Walesby Lane Saturday afternoon to tackle the ever-dangerous Ollerton Town , down in 18th – and Lee is using his experience to prepare the club for the game , writes Colin Muncie .

Lee told TBG ” I’ve called for calm around the place – from players to fans to Committee members. We are going through a tough time at the minute -as most clubs do through the season- but we are playing well and playing great football.We are getting punished for every little mistake at the moment, but these things happen in football .We have a great squad , a great set of lads and only working hard will get us through it. If you look at the bigger picture- and if after 11 games someone had said “you’ll be 4th”- I’d have snapped their hand off”.

Lee is expecting his players to reinvent themselves at the weekend. ” I’m excited about Saturday’s game” he admitted “because it’s only a matter of time before the tide turns”.

“You don’t become a bad team overnight -and I’m sure we will prove that on Saturday” .
