Shaw hopeful ahead of Kidsgrove

Sheffield FC boss Mark Shaw believes his side will soon be climbing up the table, writes The Star’s Paul Webster, and that could start with a first away win of the season at Kidsgrove Athletic on Saturday.

“I’ve got nothing but praise for my group of players, said Shaw. “We’ve only been together a few weeks but we’re fitter, more organised and it’s only a matter of time before we click.

Somewhere very soon we’ll get on a run. The lads are playing so well together and beginning to gel, you can see it’s all starting to come together.

“Kidsgrove on Saturday is a big game, so we’ve got to make sure we go out and perform. It’s a long trip and tough place to go so we want to make sure it’s a worthwhile journey and get something out of the game."

“I’ve felt we’ve been on a peripheral of a good run. We’ve not won away so it would be perfect for us to go there and start it off, I’m certainly very confident we can do that any time, I feel that we’re now on the verge of putting everything together.” 

Shaw was bitterly disappointed that Club came away from Alvechurch empty handed but says there was many positives to come out of the 3-2 defeat. 

“To come away with nothing from the game when you’ve played so well is really frustrating, he said. “We created the better chances but got beat by a bit of a worldie strike that came from a hopeful punt upfield."

“I felt so sorry for the players, they worked really hard and deserved something from the game.”

A win for Sheffield would see them leapfrog Kidsgrove, who are three places and two points above Club in 20th. The hosts have lost the last three in league and cup.
