WARRINGTON boss Shaun Reid has challenged his squad to win all their remaining games, a feat that would see them crowned champions.

Title rivals Curzon Ashton and Farsley both dropped points on Saturday, leaving Yellows three points clear with 14 games left.

Town have two games in hand on the Yorkshire outfit, while postponements mean they face Curzon twice during the run-in. “We have got 14 games left and 14 wins makes us champions, that’s a fact, so it’s up to my players to believe in themselves and I’ll be putting that in their minds,” he said.

“The whole squad is contributing; every one of them is playing together and now hopefully there is a glimmer of hope and they realise what they can do.

“Curzon losing was a massive result for us and we have games in hand on Farsley, but in football that means very little.

“We’re four points clear of Curzon, so it’s in our hands.”

Town host Kendal Town on Saturday before travelling to New Mills on Monday and Reid has praised director of football Toby Macormac’s part in assembling a squad to deal with a hectic schedule.

“New Mills is never an easy place to go, but I’m demanding six points from the two games,” added Reid.

“I’ve got options all over the park which I owe to Toby Macormac. He’s built me a good squad, and has been committed to getting the players I’ve asked for.

“We never stop looking for players, we have always got to look to improve, but with my squad it’s difficult to pick a team each week which is a great position to be in.”

And Reid hopes the competition for places will keep his players striving to hit top form.

“I’m not afraid to drop anyone if I think they need a rest or are not pulling their weight,” he said. “They’ll be out and I’m confident someone else would step in and do their job.”
