The bottom two sides in the NCEL Premier Division face off with each other as Goole AFC host second-bottom Harrogate Railway; dropped points for either side would not help their survival cause.
Railway Manager Craig Ogilvie will have his side fired up. “We’ve got 6 games left and all the games are really important and this Saturday is one of those.”
“Our performances over the last few games haven’t been good enough and if we play like that on Saturday against Goole we’ll get beat, it’s as simple as that. We need to match them in terms of workrate, desire, the will to win and take our chances when they arrive.”
“We’ve been guilty of not really showing what we’re capable of and making it easy for opposition teams and that’s got to change.”
“It’s the business end and I need all the squad to come together for one last push to try and stay up in this League. In terms of form, if you’ve watched our last few performances you wouldn’t have us as favourites to win the game that is for certain. We’ve got a big training session tonight in prep for the game and I’m expecting a good session where we’ll be working on how we are setting up on Saturday, and the game plan too which the lads must stick to if we have a chance of getting something from the game.”
“I don’t mind getting beat if we play our best and it’s not good enough, but I can’t handle getting beat and the workrate not being what it should be. That’s unacceptable. I don’t demand perfection from the lads, but I demand hard work. I hate to fail and – being relegated irrespective of what people’s opinions are – to me would be failure so I’m putting pressure on myself to try and get the lads ready for the next 6 games and see if we can get over the line.”
