A new era begins tomorrow for Hednesford Town as Nicky Eaden takes charge of his first game in Pitmen colours.
We go into the game aiming to build on our last gasp victory over North Ferriby United on Boxing Day as we look to get 2019 off to a good start by completing a league double over a side that we defeated 2-1 back on August Bank Holiday Monday.
Farsley arrive at Keys Park very much in form though having not lost in the league since October 6th and having won their last eight league games on the spin – seeing them surge up to second place in the league.
The new man in-charge admitted that it had been a busy few days since his arrival on Thursday.
“We had the lads in on Saturday morning for a training session, and they all seemed very receptive of the ideas that we put forward. Gaz and myself went through a few different things with them and it was good to get some time in with them.
“They seem like a good bunch of lads but we know that there is likely to be some comings and goings in the next few weeks with loans due to expire and we want to bring in a couple of new faces. Hopefully we can get a settled squad though before too long.
“I had someone go and watch Farsley on Saturday and they are what we would expect from a team up near the top – a solid side with a goal threat. It is going to be a tough game but hopefully we can look after ourselves and get the right result.”
The Pitmen go into the game still missing injured midfielder Josh Craddock while Jed Davies will also have to be assessed with the attacking midfielder having taken a knock to his ankle in the Witton Albion game before Christmas.
The game kicks-off at the usual weekend time of 3pm, albeit tomorrow is a Tuesday, and we look forward to your support at Keys Park as we look to get back to winning ways on our own pitch.
