Daisy Hill begin a sequence of five home games in succession at the Plumb Factory Stadium, when they host Shelley in the North West Counties League First Division North tomorrow, writes Ian Templeman.

The West Yorkshire side are currently in second bottom place in the table, but they come into the game on a run of form that has seen them go five games without defeat, and Daisy boss Lee Hill has warned his squad that they will be tough opponents.

“Shelley have got a new manager, and since he came in there has been a turnaround in fortunes,”said Hill.

“When we played them in August and beat them 3-0, I thought they had the makings of a good side, even though they had some poor results early in the season.

“We’ve highlighted to the lads in training this week that we won’t see the same version of the Shelley side that we played earlier in the season.

“The run of home games we have now, is hopefully going to be good for us.

“Five successive home games on a nice big pitch will help us in implementing the new style we are trying to bring in.

“The league is so competitive we know they won’t be easy games, but none the less, it is an opportunity to go and put a run together and turn the season around a bit.

“If we can get a few decent results and get a bit of good fortune here and there, hopefully we can get back to a run of form like we showed in September.”

The game kicks off at 3 pm, and will be preceded by a minutes’ silence and the laying of a wreath on the pitch, in memory of those who lost their lives in conflict.
