Take Cup form into Chester clash: Jim
WITH County’s FA Cup campaign put to rest for another season, attention now turns towards County’s promotion push – and the bid to return to winning ways after the 3-2 defeat at Blyth Spartans.
An impressive 3-0 FA Trophy win over National League North high-fliers Chorley was sandwiched in between the Blyth and Barnet defeats, and Hatters boss Jim Gannon challenged his players to keep up their impressive recent league form when they take on Chester at home.
“We just need to continue translating this into our league form now – and to be fair, we have been going well in the league,” he said.
“The Yeovil game wasn’t a one-off, we were in the midst of a run of games where we were beating Chorley and Curzon Ashton and so on in the league.
“It’s obviously tough to have a run of games like this, so we’re going to get those results like Blyth last midweek, and we’re going to have tough tests with trips to Spennymoor and Ashton in midweek games.
“So the cup run has brought in some good finances and some pride, but it comes at a cost.
“But all we need to do is keep learning from our experiences and keep improving as we have been doing all season.”
