Damian’s thoughts ahead of the New Year’s Day fixture

Damian Crossley has urged the 74 fans to get behind the team on New Year’s Day, as they go in search of 3 points away at Nantwich tomorrow afternoon.

Last time out, a ten-man 1874 side came up short against Witton Albion, but despite this, Crossley was pleased with the response from the players during the second half. 

“I wasn’t particularly happy with the first half, I thought we had a hangover from the awful performance on the Saturday and struggled to put any level of quality into the game.”

“Second half I thought we were excellent. We were the better team with 10 players and some of the lads really stepped up. If we can take that belief into future games that can only be a positive.” 

A tough task awaits the greens this weekend against a Nantwich Town side that have recently dispatched national league side York City in the FA Trophy on home turf. Despite this, Crossley is targeting all three points tomorrow afternoon. 

“It’ll be a tough game. They have some top players for this level and I’m surprised they aren’t competing at the top of league.”

“Having said that, I expect us to compete with every side in the league and we’ll go there looking for 3 points.”

“I’m hopeful that we’ll have a couple of new faces in the squad on Monday and I’ll be looking to add a couple more in the next week. We need to have competition for places and we need to start winning games.”

Finally, ahead of a crucial month of football, the 74 boss had a message for the fans.

“Support the team as you usually do and make as much noise as possible; it really does make a difference to the players.”
