LAW: WE MUST BE POSITIVE AND KEEP THE BELIEF
Thursday Nov 12, 2015
Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law says all the pressure is off his out-of-form side as they head to high-riding Harrogate Town this Saturday.
The Reds boss was in defiant mood despite seeing his side succumb to a 1-0 home defeat against North Ferriby United on Tuesday night, a result which means his side have now taken just one point from the last eighteen on offer in the Vanarama National League North.
In contrast, Harrogate picked up ten out of the last twelve points and sit in the play-off places going into this weekend’s clash.
“The Harrogate game looks a tough test on paper but there is no pressure on us and we must go and try to win the game and be positive and keep the belief” said Law.
“We are still the same group of players that won at Tamworth and Hednesford and could and should have beaten Boston United and Macclesfield Town.
“There was not a lot in the North Ferriby home game on Tuesday, just the goal. “We need to get back to taking our chances and making better decisions.
"Yes there is a slight lack of confidence that comes when things aren’t going your way, but we must keep on believing.
ATFC Supporters’ Association transport to Saturday’s game at Harrogate Town will depart at 9.30am and seats can be booked by contacting Mark Thorpe on 07857 558401.
For fans unable to get to Harrogate to support the Reds, there is a charity game being played at the Impact Arena this Saturday with local companies Eurocell and The Co-operative kicking off at noon. All proceeds will go to Unicef.
Alfreton Town’s next home game is on Saturday, November 21st when Boston United are the visitors to the Impact Arena for a 3pm kick-off.
