Harworth Colliery make the short six mile trip to Rossington Main tomorrow knowing that it’s win or bust if they are to save themselves from falling through the trap door and back into the Central Midlands League after just one season in the NCEL, writes Ian Robinson.
Defeat for Craig Spink’s men will leave them 3 points behind Shirebrook Town with one to play, and with a worse goal difference than their rivals, that could be curtains. Likewise, victory for Town against East Yorkshire Carnegie could also leave Harworth with too high a mountain to climb. As we’ve come to expect from Craig though, he remains upbeat and there’ll be no surrender from him or his team until it’s mathematically impossible, and he started his pre-match interview by praising his squad.
“To get in a position where survival is still achievable is no mean feat for the boys. We know we should have taken more points from our last three Saturday’s displays, but it wasn’t to be.”
“I know Ryan will have his team fired up for a local derby, but the lads have been in this week working hard for a win or bust game. It’s still on and the lads will go to the bitter end and I trust this group of lads. Just the six points required from two games but we can do it!”
