Whaley urges March Town United to turn promising performances into victories

AMBITIOUS March Town United boss Brett Whaley has urged his team to start turning their promising performances into victories.

The Hares almost grabbed a point at unbeaten Whitton United on Saturday but slipped to a narrow 1-0 defeat - just their second Ridgeons First Division loss of the campaign.

Whaley said: “It’s pleasing that we’ve played so well against sides like Wisbech Town, Ely City and Whitton this season but at the end of the day we’ve not won any of those matches.

“We can take heart from the performances but the reality is we’ve got to get points on the board. We need to develop from a side with the potential to win games to one which gets three points more often.”

Striker Andy Wayte and midfielder Adam Rothery are set to return for the Hares who host Fakenham Town in a league clash on Saturday (3pm kick-off).

Defender Marc Welcher and Lewis Cook could also both be available but midfielder Dan Jenkins is doubtful with a groin injury.

Whaley said: “If we want to be a top-five side, which is where we aspire to be, we’ve got a run of games where we need to get big points in.”
