It was a good start to 2019 for Harworth Colliery, 19th in Toolstation NCEL Division one. They came from behind to take a point in the 2-2 draw at Worsbrough Bridge Athletic to build on the home win over Selby at the end of last year. On Saturday they welcome fifth-placed Nostell Miners Welfare to the Jones and Co Stadium – and Colliery Manager, Lee Needham didn’t miss Nostell’s win in their fiery clash at Rossington.
“We are aware of the tough challenge we face on Saturday,”
Lee admitted to TBG Editor Craig Kendall. “Nostell have put together some good results of late so it’s not going to be easy. However, we want to continue improving every week, as we have been doing. Training has been good for a number of weeks now and it’s been showing in the lads’ performances.”
Lee is beginning to see the light at the end of a long injury tunnel. “We have a few players back that have either been away or injured, so it makes competition for places healthy,” he reported. “The lads are fully aware that they need to perform in order to keep the shirt. I’m personally looking forward to the game.”
Lee hasn’t forgotten his side’s 2-0 reverse at Nostell in the first week of the season. “I feel that we should have got something from the first game at their place – so let’s see what Saturday brings.”
