Whitstable Town manager Nicky Southall wants his side to find momentum to climb Ryman League Division 1 South table
Nicky Southall says striking the right
balance of ‘winning ugly’ and style is the key to his Whitstable
side climbing the table this season.
The Oystermen’s aim to follow up their
fine 4-0 win over Worthing on Saturday was hit as Tuesday’s game at
Horsham was postponed and Southall admitted: "We were looking
forward to playing again.
"The break did us some good and once
you get that win, you want to play again as soon as you can and try
to get some momentum going. That’s the only way you’re going to
climb the table."
Southall went to watch neighbours
Faversham beat upcoming opponents Tooting on Tuesday and said: "The
conditions were difficult but they managed to win ugly.
"Nobody will remember that game but
their manager will remember the three points at the end of the
season. With the state of the pitches at the moment, you just need
to get through games sometimes.
"You want to keep possession, you
don’t want to start hoofing it long because you’ll lose it that
way. You need to be brave and try to play football."
He added: "We want to get away from
the bottom and if we can do that, we can play with more freedom and
zest which comes from the new-found confidence."
