After a very disappointing game last Saturday focus is now solely on the league as we face Maidstone United at The Gallagher Stadium in Kent. A win would see Ferriby climb out of the relegation zone just before Christmas.
The Villagers were defeated by National League North side Alfreton Town in the FA Trophy 1-0 which wasn’t the result that the fans wanted after a strong team was lined up to play the team in the league below. It was hard to find an element of the game were we played really well. The quicker we forget about the game the better.
About this Weekend’s Opposition
We played Maidstone back in September where we succumbed to a defeat. Ferriby lost 2-0 to a side which at that time were putting solid results together. Maidstone were down to 10 men at the end of the first half but Ferriby weren’t able to capitalise on that and struggled to get a hold of the game. Hopefully this time around we see something different.
Maidstone currently lie in 18th in the National League and are not on very good form as of late. They have lost 7 of there last 10 games and there last win came at home to Eastleigh at the back end of November. They, as well as Ferriby, will be looking to regain form coming into Saturdays fixture
Players to Watch
I have selected two players which impressed me in a game which the full team performance wasn’t great. Levi Sutton looked like he had plenty of energy and was running round the pitch like a headless chicken. He was also very good with the ball at his feet. Watch out for him making forward runs alongside the likes of Kyle Wooton and Reece Thompson.
Ross Armstrong played well also, putting in good defensive tackles and was also able to bring the ball forward when needed. I feel these should be the two players who start in the centre of midfield. With the return of Connor Oliver from injury however. It might mean we don’t see it. But we shall wait and see.
