The NCEL action this weekend kick’s off tonight as Glasshoughton Welfare host Nostell MW under the lights as they hope to eclipse their highest attendance of the season of 110.
Welfare joint manager Lee Vigars is also hoping to put on a good show. “I’m hoping this game on Friday night is on a par with the first game we played a couple of weeks ago, because it was a great, fiery contest. Both sides went all out for the win and left nothing out there on the pitch.”
“Saying that, we were far from that committed in our last outing at Worsbrough on Saturday, in what I’d describe as the worst performance we’ve had since myself and Darren took over at Glassy 3 years ago. It was a painful display and one I could only apologise to the committee and supporters for after the game having been embarrassed to be part of it. We are safe in mid-table without a huge chance of climbing much higher and doubtful we’ll drop any lower and the performance reflected that.”
“It was something we won’t accept at Glasshoughton and made that clear afterwards. There will be changes ahead of the game tomorrow night, some forced upon us through injury, but also we’d like to give a few an opportunity to show us what they can do from the start, as we’re now already planning ahead for 2019/20.”
Whilst Nostell Joint Manager Jason Dodsworth added, “Another Friday night game and we will be looking for a better performance than when we met in the home game. We never got going that day and Glasshoughton made it real difficult for us. The lads will know what to expect this time and should be ready for a battle.”
“We’ve been out of sorts in a few games over the last few weeks and we had a good chat with the lads after training Tuesday, and they know we won’t accept just coasting through to the end of the season. We have 4 games left and we expect the same desire and will to win as if it was the start of the season. We’re capable of winning every game and finishing as high as possible.”
