Beverley Town can go top of the Humber Premier League this Saturday if they beat East Riding Rangers by four clear goals.
Town who are currently third in the table will host bottom club Rangers at Norwood. Beverley Town is the only side in the top three with a game.
Manager Rich Jagger, however, is playing down his side’s chances of his side ending the day in first place. He says while Rangers may be rooted to the foot of the table they pose a real threat.
Jagger will be forced to make a number of changes as he goes into the game with a number of key players missing.
Jagger knew the festive period would be a difficult time for his side. He has been hinting for some time that the squad would be key.
Ryan Saltmer, Nathan White, Declan Corlyon and Aldo Hysenaj will all return to the squad.
The mood in The Camp Is Good Ahead Of Rangers Visit To Norwood
Speaking ahead of the game Jagger said;
“Confidence and the mood in the camp is good. We need to go into Saturday’s match looking to build on the great result we had last week beating Pocklington Town.”
“While Rangers may be at the foot of the table we can take nothing for granted. They will arrive at Norwood with a spring in their step. I certainly think they will be well up for the game against us.”
“I have told the lads they need to keep an eye on them if we are to get the win we need to stay in the mix at the top of the table.”
Jagger and his side have already beaten Rangers. When the sides met earlier in the season Town enjoyed a 6-1 win over their opponents.
A repeat of that result would see them go top of the table with just one fixture left before the Christmas break.
