Hallam anticipate tough Worsbrough challenge

There could be some movement at the top end of Division One tonight as 4th placed Hallam host 6th placed Worsbrough Bridge Athletic at Sandygate, writes Ian Robinson, and with both teams coming into the game off good wins at the weekend, it’s all set to be a cracker.

With games in hand over their rivals, Hallam Joint Manager Stephen Whitehead is keen to convert those into points to put the pressure on the others. “It’s another game we have in hand so it’s important an this stage of the season we put the points on the board which will be testing against a good Worsborough team.”

Meanwhile, Scott Bates is looking for an improvement on Saturday’s first-half performance, telling us, “Its a big game for us and we hope the weather holds off as we want games coming thick and fast to keep the momentum going. We’ve got to come out of the traps a lot quicker though to improve on Saturday.”

Finally Assistant Manager Dean Bamforth is looking forward to meeting up with Briggers Manager Lee Morris. “Lee’s a mate and we speak regularly. They had a fantastic result on Saturday and no doubt he’ll have them fired up for the game. I’m looking for an improvement both individually and collectively from Saturday’s performance. If the weather holds, we’re looking forward to another great crowd at Sandygate. They were fabulous again on Saturday.”

Meanwhile, in the other camp, Lee Morris feels that all the pressure will be on the home side. “It will be a very tough game as Hallam are flying at the moment and have put themselves in a great position to go and get that title. There will be a big crowd so we’ll go and enjoy the game and the occasion. The pressure is on Hallam as they can’t afford a slip up and if we can perform anywhere near how we did on Saturday, it should be a cracking game.”
