Matt’s thoughts ahead of Saturday’s fixture

1874 Northwich’s Matt Woolley is hoping for a slice of luck this weekend, as the greens entertain Avro at Townfield this weekend. 

Coming off the back of a narrow 1-0 defeat to Runcorn Linnets last weekend, Matt was quick to praise the effort of the players, despite the result.

“Last weekend showed how cruel football can be, when you are in a bit of bad form often you don’t get that little bit of luck.”

“I thought a draw would have been a fair result but I thought the attitude and commitment was the best we have seen for a while.”

“The lads have now showed what they are capable of and the levels they can reach so for us to improve and start getting some results that has to be the benchmark.”

Avro have impressed in the early stages of the season, and find themselves in a play off position before kick off on Saturday. Woolley spoke about the importance of setting high standards from the off in order to stand a chance of forcing a positive result. 

“Mark and I went to watch them (Avro) during mid week. They are a strong well organised side and very good defensively.”

“It will be important we show the same levels of attitude and discipline from last week, this weekend and will need everyone to perform to the best of their ability.”

“I would like to think we have all seen a difference in the players these last couple of weeks. I think the performances have deserved a little more than what we have got.”

“I would like to thank everyone for their support over these last 2 weeks. We believe we are heading in the right direction and aren’t far away from getting an important win. Once again we will give our all this weekend, we hope you can do from the terraces!”

1874 will be without Michael Ibeto who is ruled out with a broken foot, whilst the fitness of caretaker manager Mark Jones will be assessed ahead of kickoff. 1874 have however bolstered the squad with the addition of Elliot Coleman from Alsager Town, who has been brought in to provide cover.
