Tomorrow Ferriby host Wrexham on the day of Bonfire night and Villagers boss Steve Housham is hoping that Ferriby will start November with a bang. They will be looking to spark life back into their season after a miserable October which saw Ferriby lose all 7 games in league and cup.
With their first TV appearance of the season just around the corner Housham wants to see fireworks from his side as he fully believes in their ability. He commented “We’re targeting points in this next month, we have to go in with nothing to fear starting against Wrexham. Be brave and start November in great form and look forward to our first TV game”. Before facing Woking live on National TV next weekend the more immediate task for Housham is the visit of Wrexham who we last met at Wembley in 2015… anyone remember that?
Ferriby will go into the game encouraged by last week’s performance against Bromley. Although the game ended in a 2-1 defeat for The Villagers it was a much improved performance especially in attacking areas. They lost the game largely due to a lack of composure after scoring the opening goal and Housham gave his views on this, “The lads deserved the goal, we had been building up to it all game. After that we needed a leader to calm things down, instead I think we let the excitement get the best of us.” This lack of composure may be understandable as Ferriby have found goals hard to come by and haven’t led many games but holding a lead when they get it is something they will have to seriously work on if they want to pick up points.
The manager was also keen to praise the Ferriby faithful ahead of tomorrow’s game as he feels they are really sticking by the team through this difficult period of losing so many games. After some kind feedback from Bromley fans about their experience at the Eon Visual Media Stadium last Saturday Housham was quick to put that down to the home supporters, “I’ve seen a lot of comments from Bromley supporters saying that they loved their experience, that’s down to our fans, they are conducting themselves well enduring a poor run of results but are still supporting week in week out, we can’t thank them enough”
He ended by urging the supporters to keep behind the team, “Keep believing, our luck will change” a big statement but one he clearly believes in and hopefully tomorrow he isn’t left feeling like Guy Fawkes on the bonfire after another defeat.
