PR: Parkgate vs North Ferriby

North Ferriby Fc look to make it three successive victories when they travel to Parkgate on Saturday. Chris Bolder’s men have started to find the form that led them to a 21 game unbeaten run. Last Saturdays comprehensive 4-0 home win over Swallownest gave the Villagers plenty to be optimistic about moving forward with their promotion push. 

Although still in second place, the Villagers know that any slip up from league leaders Hallam can be crucial before the two sides meet in March. 

When asked about his thoughts regarding the victory over Swallownest, Chris said, “it was a good performance and we showed we can be clinical. We played good football and we kept a clean sheet”.

When asked about how he feels regarding the outlook for the rest of the season, Bolder said, “we are in a good position. We have dropped vital points which means that it is no longer in our hands, there is however, a lot of football to be played. Teams, including us have dropped points that on the outside, looks unlikely”. 

In Parkgate, the Villagers face a side sat in 10th place and unbeaten in their last three league games. Last time out they rescued a point away at Selby with Frederick Tracey scoring in the games dying moments. The aforementioned Tracey will be the main threat to the Villagers defence on Saturday, with eleven goals to his name, Tracey has proven he can put the ball in the net. When asked about Parkgate, Bolder said, “they’ve had really good results and they have an attacking threat. They play good football and are comfortable in possession. It should be a good surface which will help us play our normal game”. 

Joel Shortland is back in contention after missing several weeks due to injury. Tom Corner didn’t train earlier on in the week.
