Worksop Town player/manager Jon Kennedy is wanting Worksop returning winger Adam Scott to put in a performance that will help get a much needed three points for Tigers.
Fans favourite Scott is back in the Worksop squad after a three game suspension. Whilst the winger has been absent Kennedy admits his side have lacked that creative edge, he’s also pleased to finally have a selection headache heading into he game.
Kennedy said: “We’ve got Adam Scott back on Saturday as well as Steven Wankiweicz, Daniel Booth and new signing Juilian Lawrence. It’s nice to have a fully strength squad to choose from and when we have everyone at our disposal we can beat anyone.
“We’ve missed Adam I think we’ve only scored 1 goal in 3 games since he’s been missing. As you can see we’ve struggled without him and I think he’s a massive boost for Saturday. I’m looking for a big performance from him on Saturday.”
Kennedy has had to try to re-energise the lads after last week’s 4-1 defeat to Bridlington Town. He feels he has a good young squad who will learn from this bad spell that Worksop are going through. Kennedy also feels it will be a tough game on Saturday at Barton and has heard the pitch is difficult to play on. The Tigers boss knows he needs as many points possible from his last three games to give the squad and the supporters a lift going into pre-season and next season.
Kennedy continued: “I’m expecting a tough game against Barton on Saturday, they’re a tough team to play. We beat them in the reverse fixture but in all honesty there isn’t too much between most of the side’s in this league.
“I think the lads were disappointed after last Saturday, but I told the lads not to get too down as results like these do happen. They’re a good young squad and we have to get as many points as possible in the last three games of the season.”
Worksop Town have fans favourite Adam Scott back after suspension, the Worksop winger will be looking to get the team back on track and inject some confidence into the young side with a victory in Lincolnshire on Saturday. Worksop are a side that’s developing and learning more every game they play, the fans are patient with the squad and understand where the club are. The young Worksop squad know they have the quality and potential to pay their loyal fans back and hopefully this will start with a convincing win over the Old Boys at the weekend. It’s the last away game of the season so COME ON TIGERS!
Barton Town Old Boys are currently sitting in 20th position on 31 points. They’re currently occupying the last place in the drop zone. Paul Foot’s team are one point off safety, Parkgate are currently holding 19th spot so you can anticipate a nerve wrecking last three games of the season for The Swans. This will be another hard test for Jon Kennedy’s men as they face a side needing at least one win from their final two games you would feel to have a good chance for survival.
