Poor form doesn’t worry Lancaster City boss

TONY Hesketh is refusing to panic despite Lancaster City’s poor recent form.

The Dolly Blues stuttered to a goalless draw as Ossett Albion on Saturday after poor performances against Bamber Bridge and Harrogate Railway Athletic the week previous, but the City boss isn’t too downbeat.

He said: “The conditions at Ossett were very difficult and I suppose it was difficult opposition as well.

“They had won the game before and recruited four or five new faces and they had great spirit.

“It was disappointing that we couldn’t break them down but had we been given one of the two nailed on penalties then we would have got the three points.

“We had chances but failed to capitalise. I said to the boys afterwards it’s very rare we don’t score and it’s unheard of to go two games without a goal. We average two and a half goals a game.

“The result’s a blip but it’s not disastrous. It’s another point in our season and keeps us healthily placed in the league.

“One good thing is there are still nine or 10 sides who can get promotion so teams will slip up and take points off each other.”
