Selby Town eager for reversal of fortune
11:04am Friday 16th August 2013 in Sport
SELBY Town will be looking to pick up their first points of the season when they host Appleby Frodingham tomorrow, writes Jack Amor.
After defeats in their opening two games of the Northern Counties East League division one season, manager Ian Dring is relishing the challenge of the Appleby fixture.
“We can’t predict a win,” he said. “Football is a strange game, but if the supporters come down and get behind us, we are confident we can win.”
The Robins have suffered back-to-back defeats by Teversal and Eccleshill United and Dring said: “We simply couldn’t score.
“Once we start doing that, we will get into our stride and I’m sure we will do a lot better.
“Our work-rate has been top class and the players are still upbeat, but unfortunately we can’t finish. Hopefully, against Appleby we will show we can score.
“Two losses in a row are not ideal, but we can still pick it up. It’s early doors and these results have only made our enthusiasm grow.”
Meanwhile, Harrogate Town’s opening game of the Conference North season is at Oxford City tomorrow, while Harrogate Railway Athletic host Salford City in their Evo-Stik League division one north campaign opener.
Newly-promoted Scarborough Athletic travel to Kidsgrove Athletic on day one of the Evo-Stik League division one south season.
