Vanarama Conference North
North Ferriby United v Harrogate Town
Monday 25th August 2014; KO 3.00pm
Ferriby will be looking to maintain their unbeaten start to the season when Harrogate Town visit the Eon Visual Media Stadium on bank Holiday Monday The Villagers have won three and drawn one of their opening games and sit top of the Vanarama Conference North.
Ferriby Manager Billy Heath was looking for a big response from his player at Boston on Saturday and he certainly got one. Heath had to make three changes to his starting line-up but they did not disrupt The Villagers’ rhythm.
Ferriby put in a superb performance against a Boston side that had won its three opening games. The Villagers controlled most of the game and certainly deserved their win. It was a marvellous performance by the whole team and they made a good Boston side struggle. Ferriby were only seriously troubled in the final 10 minutes when Boston threw everything at them in search of an equaliser. They almost got one, as well, with virtually the final touch of the game but anything other than a Ferriby win would have been a travesty.
Heath commented, “I thought we were superb throughout the team against Boston. We were difficult to play against today. The performance was a great example of how to play away from home.
Heath will be hoping for another skilful and professional performance from his side against Harrogate.
“We need to build on our opening four games against Harrogate. They have not had the best of starts but they will be tough to play against.”
Harrogate have drawn two and lost two of their opening four fixtures. They have spent quite a lot of money during the Summer and would have expected a better start. They will be dangerous opponents on Monday as they will see Ferriby as a good place to kick-start their season.
With Hull City playing on Sunday, Ferriby are hoping that City fans will come down to the Eon Visual Media Stadium to cheer on Ferriby.
