Fergie: It’s important to look ahead

2017-09-13 FC United of Manchester

Darlington full back David Ferguson says that’s important to look ahead as he prepares for Wednesday’s home game with FC United.

Three points are a must for Quakers as they try to end their recent winless run, and Fergie says; “We have to forget about these recent games, and put them in the past.

“We need to concentrate on this game now, and make sure that we collect three points and set ourselves up for the FA Cup match on Saturday.

“We all believe that the win is going to come, because we’re creating chances and not being ruthless enough. The manager says that we must stick with it, and he’s right. Scoring a goal is the last piece in the jigsaw. If Becky’s effort had gone in on Saturday instead of hitting the post, then we would have gone on to score another two or three.

“Leamington were very happy with a point. They had ten men back behind the ball, left only hone man up front and set their stall out for a point, which they got. They celebrated as if they’d won on the final whistle.”

Quakers have six players receiving treatment at the moment, and Fergie said; “I’ve never been in a squad that has so many injuries, we just don’t seem to be having any luck with them.

“it’s a contrast to last season when I first came to the club, everyone was fit then, but what can you do? It’s a matter of dealing with it – that’s why you have a squad.

“Everyone is in this together and supporting each other, even the lads who aren’t playing at the moment.”

Fergie has good memories of the game last season, he scored a rasping 35 yarder in our 4-2 win.

Last Saturday’s result saw us drop to 14th place in the league table, four points off the final play off place.

FC United fell to a 1-0 defeat at Curzon Ashton on Saturday and sit 19th in the table having won just two of their ten games so far.

The sides’ two meetings last season produced plenty of goals, as we won 3-2 away from home and then 4-2 at Blackwell Meadows.

FC United were founded in 2005 and won three straight promotions in their first three years. After many near misses FC United were promoted into the National North in the 2014/15 season.

They moved into their new home at Broadhurst Park in 2015, having spent the majority of the last ten years playing at Bury’s Gigg Lane.

Kick off on Wednesday evening is 7.45pm, updates on the game will be made from the club’s official website, Facebook and Twitter. Live Commentary will be broadcast from Darlo Fans Radio at 7.30pm.
