Tide turning:Town’s Liam

Little more than a week after the humiliating defeat at home to Vauxhall Motors, Town can start looking up the table rather than over their shoulders.

That’s the view of midfielder Liam Needham who believes, after taking four points from trips to Guiseley and Harrogate, that the Shaymen have started to turn the corner

“It looks that way,” he said. “Certainly from the Vauxhall game we have turned the corner.

“Even on Tuesday night when we were 2-0 down on the back of a 5-1 loss you were thinking ‘this could be anything’.

“But how much character have the boys shown to fight back and produce two good performances?”

Town took the confidence gained from their dramatic comeback win at Nethernoor seven days ago into last weekend’s game at Harrogate.

But despite dominating for long periods and putting the home goal under tremendous pressure, they were unable to make it two wins out of two at Wetherby Road.

“How we have not won that game is beyond me,” said Needham.

“Give credit to the defenders who flung themselves in front of everything, but on another day we would have had four or five in the second half.

“The performance was there and a clean sheet so it was not bad.”

Prior to the game at Guiseley there were understandable rumblings on the terrace after two seasons of almost unbroken success in the league.

And despite the faltering start to the Blue Square Bet North campaign, Needham has urged fans not to give up on the players just yet.

“We heard a couple of fans getting on at us, but when you look at our squad there is no doubt this team can do it,” he said.

“Maybe it was a bit of confidence lacking, but hopefully we can take the last two performances and turn them into a run of wins.”

Town have announced reduced admission prices for Saturday’s FA Cup second qualifying round clash with Tadcaster Albion at the Shay.

Entry will be £10 for adults, £7 for concessions, £5 for under 12s and £2 for under sevens.

Those prices will remain the same throughout the competition as long as Town progress.

Should Saturday’s game end in a draw, the replay would be at the Northern Counties East Premier Division side’s ground on Wednesday, October 5
