Boss Calls On Courage and Character

Gavin Cowan has called on his players to show “courage and character to turn the tide” as the Bucks look to get back to winning ways tomorrow afternoon at Curzon Ashton.

Telford are without a win in five after a disappointing month saw them slip to 13th in the National League North table.

The boss has called on his players to show courage to continue to follow the plan and stick together after a positive week of training with his players.

“I was really disappointed with the final hour against Chester at home but other than that the past few games have been about fine margins, the overall performance against AFC Fylde was really good but the players need to be responsible and focus for 90 minutes. That could mean scoring a penalty or making a challenge or picking the right pass, its real fine margins and we are not getting the luck our hard work deserves but there is only one way to change that by showing a huge amount of character and belief”

“We have to put in perspective our last three games have been Chester twice and Fylde and we weren’t a million miles away, we would have liked to get some points on the board, but we were playing immense opposition with far more resources and budgets then what we have”

Although Curzon Ashton have not kicked a ball since the 28th of December due to COVID, Gavin Cowan remains focused on ensuring his players are ready no matter what.

“We will continue to do our research as normal, but we need to concentrate on ourselves and apply ourselves to the best of our ability.

Cowan has confirmed Zak Lilly is back in contention after his 10-day isolation period following testing positive for COVID-19.

“Having Zak back gives us a boost because it’s another body, another quality player. Zak can offer us a huge contribution and help us get some positive results in the future”

Gavin Cowan has confirmed he is looking to strengthen the squad if the “right players” become available

“We’re always looking to improve as December hasn’t been a good month for us, but players need to stand up and be accountable, but we are always looking to strengthen the squad if we can. That’s not an easy task for us within our football with finances but as it stands at the moment it’s down the players we have within the group”

Tomorrow’s game will be available to stream live on Curzon Ashton TV. Alternately our twitter feed will be providing live updates from 2pm as well as live coverage on BBC Radio Shropshire from 3pm.
