Easter key to respectable finish

Sheffield FC kick-off their Easter programme this evening when they travel to Romulus, writes The Star’s Paul Webster, looking to avoid a third defeat on the spin and fifth in the last six ahead of the final home game on Bank Holiday Monday against Belper Town.

“It’s always difficult at Romulus as they play a difficult artificial surface which isn’t the latest Astro turf, said boss James Colliver.

“But it’s a pitch we got a positive performances and result on earlier in the season so we’ll see if we can go there again emulate that. Hopefully that will set us up nicely for Monday when we’ve got a bit of a derby against Belper.

“It’s a game to look forward to in terms of our players knowing a lot of them with lots of links throughout the two squads.

“It’s our last home game of the season so it would be nice to see the season out with a good performance. The home support has been great throughout the season. I’ve had a lot of positive comments and messages regarding this season which is very nice. But people who know me well know I’m very thorough and this season has been frustrating to say the least and I shall be looking for us to be more competitive next season.

“I was disappointed with the result and performance last weekend (2-1 defeat against Northwich). I’m not taking anything away from them but we weren’t at the races. The lads were extremely disappointed and knew collectively we wasn’t good enough in and out of possession. That something we’ll look to put right in our last three games.”
