Town have enjoyed a good run of form in recent weeks and manager Rich Jagger’s hopes his side can continue that form in what he says is a massive game for him.
Hanson Jewellers FC may be at the foot of the Humber Premier League but results in recent weeks show they do have what it takes to compete on the pitch.
Speaking ahead of the match Jagger said;
“For me this is a massive game. We expect a tough test against a team that are in the bottom two, but have won their last 2 league games, beating Pocklington and East Yorkshire Carnegie.”
“We go into the match missing as few players. Stuart Oliver is out through injury, Shaun Day is unavailable and Jordan Organ is not 100pc after struggling with a thigh injury.”
“Ryan Saltmer will again get another 90 minutes with reserves as part of his rehabilitation.”
Jagger however has a big squad while he will miss some players he does welcome back Joe Norton and Matty Dixon come back into the fold for the game.
The manager says he thinks February will be a pivotal month for the club and that if results go their way would see them start to put pressure on the clubs above them, he said;
“If we can get a victory that takes us into next weeks home tie against leaders Scullies with 9 points from 9 in 2017, and full of confidence.”
“I feel February is going to be a pivotal month for us, the lads are really up for it, we have some really big games, and if we can take points off those above us we can put ourselves in the mix.”
