Hallam NCEL League Cup tie away at Liversedge on Tuesday night was only confirmed late last week, but their management team are well up for a difficult night ahead.
Assistant Manager, Dean Bamforth, anticipates a tough challenge. “It couldn’t be tougher could it! Not the easiest of places to get to on a Tuesday night, but after a great result on Saturday we’ll try to be competitive. It’s a quarter-final at the end of the day.”
Meanwhile Joint Manager, Scott Bates, added, “It’s been a very tough couple of weeks with injuries and fixtures, but the lads have been top class and I cannot fault their attitudes. It is a break from the league and a very tough fixture for us.”
“All I want us to do is play to our capabilities and give a good account of ourselves, that’s all anyone can ask.”
Lastly, Joint Manager Stephen Whitehead, wants Hallam’s decent form to continue. “It is a chance to get into a semi-final and that always keeps the competition for the starting 11, with lads not wanting to lose that shirt when they get it.”
“We will be going there under no illusion. Liversedge are a strong outfit, so we will have to keep to the standards we have set ourselves to have any chance of going through. Let’s hope come 19:45 on Tuesday night that we are at our best.”
