After a cracking November, and a great start to December with that fine home win last weekend over third-placed Selby Town, Dronfield Town, eighth in Toolstation NCEL Division One, take to the road this Saturday, heading north to take on fifth-placed Nostell Miners Welfare at the Crofton Community Centre – and Dronfield Manager, Chris Millington, is well aware of the task his side will face, writes Colin Muncie.
“We are looking forward to Saturday at Nostell,” Chris admitted, “and we have a bit of a spring in our step after a good win last Saturday. It’s another tough one against a team in the top five – one full of quality and capable of beating any team in this Division. From our point of view, we’ve got to ensure that last Saturday’s hard work isn’t wasted this week and that we go and give a good account of ourselves.”
“This is the second of five really tough games this month,” Chris reminded TBG, “and I’ve always said that in this run of games we will find a lot out about the squad’s mentality, as I’m sure we will encounter some difficult periods in each of the upcoming games. Up to now I can’t fault the lads’ effort and application – and it’s important that I, Nick (Siddons, Assistant Manager) and Ginner (Coach, Chris Bullock) do everything we can to make sure that they keep performing to the standards that they have recently set.”
