March Town United hoping to banish inconsistency for weekend clash with Long Melford
MARCH Town United will search for their first league win at the GER since September on Saturday, after they returned to form with a thrilling 3-2 win at the weekend.
The Hares entertain Long Melford and manager Jamie Weston has challenged his troops to banish the inconsistency which has seen them go two months without a Ridgeons First Division win in front of their own fans.
“It’s bizarre,” said Weston. “We don’t want to get into the mindset that we are an away team. Last year we were very strong at home.
“We are good on the counter attack. When we go away teams try to come out at us and that suits us as we have got a lot of pace.”
A brace from Adam Cornell and a goal from Juliano Gomes De Menezes helped March shrug off the 6-1 thrashing they suffered at the hands of Diss to beat Gorleston 3-2 on Saturday.
“If we play like we did on Saturday then we will beat most teams,” said Weston. “If we play like we did against Diss then we will lose most games. There is no sense about our inconsistency.
“Now is the time to find some continuity with the side. Over the last five games I don’t think we have had the same back four.
- 1 Man taken to hospital with serious injuries after B1098 crash
- 2 Family escape 'devastating fire' that ripped through home
- 3 Leslie 'faster, fitter, happier' after losing 10 stone in four months
- 4 Family pleased with 'huge reaction' thanks to charity Christmas lights
- 5 House fire that killed two children will not have further electrical checks
- 6 Bus ‘wars', Aids, Ely parking and a ’vote for fen man – for fen people’
- 7 Tributes paid to 'beloved husband' killed crossing road
- 8 Rachael takes bronze at national hairdressing competition
- 9 Cambridgeshire individual diagnosed with Covid-19 Omicron variant
- 10 Primary school plans for new town take step forward
“It’s in the balance at the moment - it could go either way. We could end up with a mid-table season or we could push on and achieve something special for the club.”
• Meanwhile, the table-topping reserves proved they had no issue with consistency by stretching their unbeaten run to seven games under chairman Phil White on Saturday.
Goals from Greg Hoffham, Lee White (2) and a fantastic free-kick from Marc Welcher helped them to a 4-3 win over Huntingdon RGE.
