Sixth in Toolstation NCEL Division One, Worsbrough Bridge Athletic make the 25-odd mile trip North-East to Castleford and the TJ’s Travel Arena this weekend to tackle ninth-placed Glasshoughton Welfare – and after that home defeat to fellow-challengers Hallam last Saturday, Briggers Manager, Lee Morris, is insisting on immediate redemption, writes Colin Muncie.
Lee left TBG in little doubt about his expectations from the game. “I want – and expect – a response from last week’s defeat;” he warned. “Not just the defeat; but compared to the level of performance and standards we have set, we were nowhere near good enough in all areas of the park. We were out-fought, which is not like us; but like every team, we will have a bad day at the office.”
Lee is wise and experienced enough not to over-react to one result. “I was told very early on in my management days not to get too carried away with a win – and don’t get too down with a defeat and that advice is exactly how I approach things,” he insisted. “I’m not going to dwell on it, but I do want a reaction on Saturday and we will be fired up and ready.”
“I want to be in that top six come Christmas and I won’t let us become sloppy,” Lee growled, “so hopefully Saturday’s game will be on and we can go and get three points.”
