City boss Tim Harris believes that Saturday’s victory over Stalybridge Celtic leads well into our home clash against Boston United at Whaddon Road this afternoon.\r\n\r\nThe Tigers manager spoke to the media following his sides win at Bower Fold stating that “I think it’s set it all up for an exciting Bank Holiday Monday against Boston United\r\n\r\n“I can’t remember coming here [Stalybridge] and getting a result, twice we’ve lost by the odd goal and I think we deserved to win”.\r\n\r\nCalvin Dinsley, Luke Hopper and Zack Kotwika scored for City as the home side responded once through Steve Tames. It’s a result that takes the Tigers to just a point away from the play-offs and into the top ten.\r\n\r\nFollowing last season’s tally of just 39 goals scored City have managed to bag themselves 12 this campaign, over a quarter of the 2015/2016 season after just five matches.\r\n\r\n“I think you earn the rub of the green and you earn your own luck in this game, you know we didn’t score many last year and that was always going to be a problem that we needed to address in pre-season and I’m pleased we have done”.\r\n\r\nWhen asked what he had done to work on the lack of goals last term, Harris was quick in his reply telling us that “It’s not just a case of working on it, it’s getting a nucleus of players and making sure they’re hungry for it.\r\n\r\n“We probably didn’t have enough competition for places last year, when you haven’t got that we utilised quite a number of players to try and get the right balance and we never really got there, and I think that held us in good stead when we went into the start of the season, all the effort from Matt Rose, Marc Richards and myself is paying dividends now”\r\n\r\nCity face Boston United today at Whaddon Road, 15:00 kick-off, with the visitors being a side who’ve been struggling for form this season and currently sit in 16th.\r\n\r\n“We’ve got to take the proverbial one game at a time, not get carried away. I’ve said to the boys in there that whilst it’s a great result we can do better than that and I still don’t think we’re firing on all cylinders”.
