WOMBWELL Town will look for a tenth successive league win tomorrow when they visit Parkgate who have won all their games so far this season.
Town have 11 wins from 12 games since being promoted from the County Senior League so are points five clear at the top.
But they now visit Parkgate who have won eight out of eight and are third, nine points behind the leaders with four games in hand.
Town manager Karl Rose said: “They have won eight on the trot, we have won nine on the trot. It’s a big game at the top of the table.
“We’re not worried about anyone else, we’re just looking forward to it.
“If we can win and go 12 points clear, it’s a big gap. But we’re just taking it one game at a time and we know it’s a very long season.”
Town won 3-1 at home to Shirebrook Town on Tuesday.
Owen Birks opened the scoring after 65 minutes then, after the visitors levelled, Kane Reece’s brace secured victory for the hosts.
Rose said: “It was a proper game of football. Shirebrook are the best team we have played this season but it was the best we have played.
“They are probably the favourites for the league so we expected a tough test.
“It was an even first half but we got on top and deserved to win
“We’ve put a marker down to the league. People have said we haven’t played anyone yet but we always knew we were good. People will look at that result and think we are the real deal now.
“It was a good crowd and the place was buzzing. Nights like that are the reason we started the club up.
“I have to thank my coaches Jason Dodsworth and Dean Cooper as well as the players and all the volunteers at the club.”
Town had won 2-1 at bottom club Swallownest on Saturday.
After Rikki Paylor’s opener was cancelled out, Gadhafi Kiwanuka got the winner early in the second half.
Swallownest then had a man sent off and conceded a penalty which was missed by Chris Walton.
“We were poor. It’s another win.
“We missed a penalty and hit the post.
“The good thing is we can win even if we play poorly. We want to play well but we can win ugly.”
Athersley Rec lost 2-0 at Staveley MW on Wednesday.
It was a sixth successive league defeat.
They have seven points from 11 games, leaving them a place and three points clear of the relegation zone.
Rec had lost 3-0 at Burscough in the FA Vase on Saturday.
Worsbrough Bridge re-appointed former manager Lee Morris on Wednesday, replacing Luke Forgione who left the club last week.
They lost 2-1 at home to Nostell MW on Saturday. Connor Glavin’s penalty put the hosts in front the 14th minute but the visitors levelled on the stroke of half-time then won it in the 80th minute.
Bridge then lost 6-3 at higher league Hallam on Tuesday in the Sheffield Senior Cup.
The hosts raced into a 3-0 lead at the interval then added another early in the second half.
But Bridge’s Kane Swinburn netted a hat-trick in a ten-minute spell which also saw the hosts score penalty.
Hallam got a sixth in the 70th minute.
Worsbrough have now lost their last six games in all competitions.
