Real relegation 6-pointer as Harworth host Shirebrook

Harworth Colliery

Their 2-0 home win over Glasshoughton Welfare in front of another big crowd on Scrooby Road last Saturday took battling Harworth Colliery back off the bottom of Toolstation NCEL Division One and to within seven points of safety with just eight games left. Tomorrow, Colliery will be looking to maintain that momentum with a home win over 14th-placed Shirebrook Town – and they’ll be looking for a little help, in other games, from Worsborough Bridge Athletic and Dronfield Town respectively in their battle to stay in the NCEL. Whatever happens, you can expect Harworth’s experienced Manager Craig Spink to have his squad ready for battle at three o’clock tomorrow, writes Colin Muncie.

“After a great result on Saturday we now have to look forward to every game with the same attitude and mentality,” Craig insisted to TBG. “The result was needed, and the clean sheet was a bonus but overall I was very happy with all the squad. We come up against what is usually a well drilled Shirebrook side this week, but we need to be winning every game to drag others around us into the drop zone and give us every chance of survival.”

“I’m looking forward to another home game, and hopefully another great crowd getting behind the boys.”

Whilst Shirebrook boss Gary Bryant commented, “Big Game for us Saturday against Harworth at there place. Harworth will make it difficult for us as they along with us are fighting for every point and want a strong finish to the season the 3-1 score line against Campion when we went with the bare 11 didn’t do us justice. Especially in the second half where we was I’d say the better team and Robbie Savage smashing a goal from the half way line over the keepers head!

“We will battle and hopefully it will be a brilliant game and hopefully we will be on the right end of the result tomorrow come 5pm.”
