‘We know we’re very hard to beat at the minute.’

Worksop Town midfielder Steve Woolley shares his thoughts after a hard-fought 2-0 victory away to Harrogate Railway Athletic.

Woolley expressed that the Tigers could play much better than they did tonight, however the three points was all that mattered. After saying that, it’s a sign of a great side that consistently grinds out results when the side aren’t playing well.

Over the past few months, Worksop have gone on a terrific run – winning nine games on the trot after today’s. Woolley believes the stability of a settled starting eleven has been one the main factors as to why the Tigers have shot up in the league.

“I’ve seen us play much better than we played tonight, but I’ve also seen us play better and come off the pitch with nothing. It’s a good sign when you win when your not at your best. The pitch didn’t help tonight, it was hard to control the ball at times. After the first ten or fifteen minutes we controlled the game really well and like I said, it’s the sign of a good side when you come off the pitch with a win after not playing at your best.

“I would probably say there is bags of ability in every position. I would say the settled squad we’ve had over the past few months, apart from a few changes here and there, have given us stability to go on a good run. Everyone knows what their doing, everyone knows each other’s jobs and we know we’re very hard to beat at the minute.”

Another crunch match for the Tigers as we face third place Yorkshire Amateur in a second v third match-up, which could prove vital towards the end of the season.

The experienced midfielder expressed his gratitude towards the travelling Worksop Town fans who got behind the lads throughout the 90 minutes, a big credit to the fans who travelled up tonight.

Woolley expects a big crowd to roar the Tigers to another massive three points.

“Definitely the biggest game of the season, so far. Hopefully there will be a big crowd on Saturday. Personally, I think it is a really big game for us and a must win fixture. I think we’re in a fantastic position in the league. We need to win this Saturday if we want to go up this season.

“The fans were brilliant again tonight. Just keep doing what your doing and we will keep doing what we’re doing.”
