Woodhead eyeing consistency at Retford before worrying about league position

Retford FC boss Chris Woodhead says he won’t be putting too much focus on the league table as he seeks more consistency from his side.

The Choughs hit five past Worsbrough Athletic on Bank Holiday Monday to put themselves within five points of leaders Emley AFC.

It’s a win that extends Retford’s five match unbeaten run – something that Woodhead reckons they need to continue to match if they want to have a good season.

“I’m pleased with the five goals and three points,” Woodhead said.

“The start of the game was tough, Worsbrough really got at us so that’s credit to them. A couple of decisions could have gone their way which would have then been a very difficult day.

“We got the first goal and then we started to make an impression on the game. Some great individual goals and some very good football from us.

“I’m not looking at the table too much. We are still a new team at this level and we just want to try and get three points every week.

“What will be will be and there is a long way to go. We’ve been hit for eight at Brigg and we have beaten title favourites Winterton, so anything can happen in this league.

“Points on the board are the priority. Our ambitions are to be competitive every week as I said we’ve taken a hammering this year and we have also put some great performances in against the top sides.

“Consistent is what we need to be and the rest takes care of itself.”

As the New Year draws closer, Retford start 2021 with a trip to the coast to face Skegness Town.

Woodhead reckons his side will go into the game as underdogs, but knows his side will make a game of it.

“Well I saw they beat Brigg the other day so on paper we are down for a hammering,” he said.

“We go in as underdogs but as always our lads will give us everything and hopefully we do ourselves justice.”
