Belper v Steels - Preview

By Paul Webster

Stocksbridge boss Chris Hilton is looking for his players to carry on the good work that saw his side take four points from the two Bank Holiday fixtures “We’ve got off the mark now with out first points on the board. What we want to do now is try and put a little run together and get ourselves up the table,” said Hilton.

“We’ve played some good football but we’re still not where we want to be .There is still work to do, we know that and we are still actively looking to bring in one or two players”

Hilton was a little disappointed however it wasn’t a maximum points haul. “We should had been out of sight by half-time at Sheffield . We had two blatant penalties as you will ever see turned down. Then their equaliser takes a big deflection.

“If you had offered me four points from the two games before I would have taken them but I felt in the end I felt it was two-points dropped.”

Hilton knows it will be a tough game at Belper, a place where he personally hasn’t enjoyed much luck. “I haven’t got a great record their as a manager or player, I cant remember ever winning at Belper but hopefully that will change on Saturday “

Steels will check on George Grayson who took a knock to the head on Saturday. Joe Lumsden (knee), while captain Liam McFadyen and Jack Poulton will both miss the trip.
