John Haseldin: “We want to finish as high as possible”
Holywell Town boss John Haseldin wants his side to finish as high as possible with the end of the season nigh.
Haseldin was pleased with last Saturday home win against inform Ruthin Town, and will be hoping for a repeat results this weekend.
“We started the game really well first half I thought we were excellent and good for our two goal lead. We knew the next goal was important and felt a soft penalty got them back in the game. Both teams went for it and it was a very entertaining second half. Our lads were a little disappointed at the end with the goals we conceded but these games through themselves up now and again and I said you just have to make sure you’re on the right end of a 4-3 and against a form team we were happy to get the 3 points.”
The boss is expecting more of the same and expects difficult match against local rivals Buckley Town.
“We will be expecting more of the same, with obviously the added little issue of it being a local derby on top, we have played Ruthin, Llanfair and Conwy of late and they have all been tough games. I don’t think you can take league positions into account to much in this league because everyone can beat each other, we have just got to make sure we are up for it on the day and match them all over the pitch for effort.”
Haseldin is targeting to finish as high as possible and the upcoming games give him the belief that his team can take maximum points and climb the table before the season’s end.
“We want to finish as high as possible, all we can do is look after ourselves and win our remaining games which we believe is realistic.”
Holywell Town announced the signing of Matty Kendrick this week, and the fans will be hoping that the new signing can provide positive impetus for the final games of the season. But, Haseldin pinpoints his defensive prowess as the biggest asset he brings to the side.
“Matty Kendrick has been with us for over a month training and has fitted in really well. He’s a local lad who’s moved back to the area and will boost our defence for remaining games and certainly one for next season.”
Holywell will be without Matty Harvey and Matty Hurdman for the game.
