We are still on right path

Warrington Guardian: Shaun Reid Shaun Reid

 Warrington manager backs players to recover quickly from disappointment of unbeaten run ending

SHAUN Reid believes if Warrington Town can replicate the form they showed in the first half of the season they have a serious shot at the title.

Yellows suffered defeat at the hands of promotion rivals Darlington 1883 on Saturday and face the only other side to beat them in the league this season, Lancaster City, at the weekend.

Town sit five points clear at the top of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division North, and victory at Lancaster would take them onto the 50-point mark – half way to what Reid feels is a title-winning total.

“I feel 100 points will win you the title so if we can show the sort of form we did in the first half of the season then we give ourselves a good chance,” he said.

“We are not going to go the whole season without getting beat, so the most important thing is how we bounce back and I know that my players can do that.

“Everyone’s having a little slip; Curzon Ashton drew at the weekend [and lost for the first time this term at Ossett Town on Tuesday], so it’s about how we react to losing against Darlington.”

Reid welcomed the addition of Appleton-based midfielder Joe Guest from Stafford Rangers this week, but says the 21-year-old will have to work hard for a starting place.

“I’ve told him to get settled in and that to get in the first team you have got to be a very decent player,” he explained.

“He’s got to work hard and prove he’s good enough to be in the team.

“We have a core squad of 19 players, but now is the time players pick up injuries.

“It’s rare that you end up with a similar squad to which you started with because that’s the nature of football at this level “It’s changing all the time and he’s going to have to show how good he is.”

Kick off at the Giant Axe this Saturday is 3pm.
