Captain Pepper challenges March Town United to revive home form after first win at the GER since September
CAPTAIN Luke Pepper has challenged March Town United to rediscover their home form after the Hares won in front of their own fans for the first time since September on Monday.
Pepper bagged a brace and youngster Adam Cornell was also on target as the Hares beat Godmanchester Rovers to net their third consecutive 3-2 victory.
“They are one of our bogey teams so it was particularly good to get the win,” said Pepper. “They aren’t a glamorous side but we always seem to come unstuck against them. In the end we just wanted it more.”
The skipper said his side, who take on Halstead Town at the GER on Saturday, will be looking to continue their winning run long into the new year.
“We need to make teams afraid of coming here like last season,” he said. “Our home form is going to be key as to whether we push on for promotion or drift away like some seasons in the past.

“The record is surprising because last season it was our home form that kept us going and this season it’s been the points we’ve got on the road.”
