Ghosts aiming for fifth successive clean sheet
Fakenham Town entertain Wisbech St Mary tomorrow looking to maintain their unbeaten start to 2019 in the Thurlow Nunn First Division North, writes Ed Colman.
Andy Cunningham’s side are yet to concede since the turn of the year and, if they prevent the Saints from scoring at Clipbush Park tomorrow, the Ghosts will have kept an impressive five straight clean sheets.
Sixth-placed Fakenham welcome 16th-placed St Mary to Clipbush Park knowing a win could see them climb to fourth in the standings, depending on results elsewhere.
Cunningham said he wont be letting his troops get carried away by their positive start to 2019.
“It has been a good start to the year. The two goalless draws felt frustrating at the time, but looking back we have kept four clean sheets and won two of our last four games.
“It gives us a platform to build on. The dressing room is on a high, we have got momentum behind us and need to kick on.
“Wisbech St Mary may be down towards to the wrong end of the table but there are no easy games in this division. We will show them the respect they deserve.
“We can’t afford to get complacent as you don’t achieve anything in January or February. It’s about the bigger picture until May.
“Come the end of the season you can give yourself a pat on the back, but for now it is about taking each game as it comes and trying to extend the good run which we are currently on.”
King’s Lynn Reserves are in home action tomorrow when Lakenheath visit The Walks.
Downham Town are without a fixture this weekend and return to action when they play host to Swaffham Town on Tuesday night in the Thurlow Nunn League First Division Knockout Cup.
