Rich Jagger says that he will be looking for a reaction from his side this weekend following their defeat to Pocklington Town.
Jagger was left feeling disappointed after Beverley’s six-game winning streak was brought to an end by title rivals Pocklington Town.
This Saturday Beverley will welcome Recitts AFC to the Norwood Recreation Ground, a match Town simply need to win.
Jagger’s comments came after he watched his side slip to a 2-0 defeat away to Pocklington. The result saw Beverley slip to third in the Humber Premier League.
Commenting on the Pocklington game he said;
“It was a really disappointing performance. The lads let themselves down. They didn’t prepare properly for the game and started slowly. They never looked at the races.”
“Conceding an early goal was a blow that we never recovered from.”
“In the second half, we changed the shape and personnel. We improved slightly, but all in all, it was an abject performance.”
“We’ve got a big game this weekend against Reckitts. I’m also looking for a reaction from the lads.”
Beverley Town has been in a rich vein form in recent weeks which has seen them climb the table. The defeat to Pocklington is a real set back in any plans they had of winning the title.
Rich Jagger Needs Team To Play Well As They Host Fourth Placed Reckitts
With leaders Chalk Lane winning, Beverley now finds themselves three points of the pace having played three more games.
While the defeat at Pocklington could prove costly, Jagger knows his side cannot afford any mistakes on Saturday.
Recitts are currently fourth in the Humber Premier League and will arrive at Norwood looking for all three points.
History also suggests that matches between the sides are often close affairs. Jagger will need all his squad to be fully focused if they are to get a result in the final game of 2018.
Chalk Lane are without a fixture this weekend while Pocklington has a much easier gamer as they face strugglers Walkington AFC.
