Caretaker manager Matt Woolley is challenging his squad to “stand up and fight”, starting with this weekends game against City of Liverpool.
1874 are looking to respond after a 4-0 defeat to Trafford last weekend, and Woolley is demanding a high intensity and work ethic from his players on Saturday.
“It was a disappointing result (Trafford) , no hiding from that. We knew it was a game we had to perform in.”
“2 weeks ago we played Mossley. We were together, committed and everyone gave 100% – as a 74 fan that has to be the minimum you expect to see and we will make sure that’s the case come 3pm on Saturday.”
City of Liverpool visit Townfield this weekend and sit in 13th place ahead of kick off. Having already faced CoL twice this season, Woolley knows it will be a tough fixture for the Greens.
“They (CoL) are a very good side. I expect them to be hard working and committed, with some real attacking threat.”
“It will be important we look to make life difficult for them but at the same time using our strengths to cause them problems.”
“We are all aware its been a challenging season but its not over! It is in these situations you see who stands up and is willing to fight and see the true character of an individual.”
Ahead of kick off on Saturday, Woolley finally issued a rallying cry to the supporters
“The club needs everyone associated now more than ever pulling in the same direction; Supporting one another & getting behind the lads on the pitch. They will be giving 100% come Saturday on it and we need you to do the same on the terraces!”
