HALL Road boss Bill Gill has indicated a willingness to get his side back on the right foot ahead of their trip to Thackley in the NCEL Premier Division tomorrow.
Prior to Tuesday night’s postponement, Rangers had slipped to two home defeats in the league and also crashed out of the FA Vase, but had adapted well to the step up as they still sit in the top half of the NCEL Premier Division table.
After a hectic schedule in the month of November, Gill admitted he has seen signs of the team returning to their previous good form.
“It’s been a relaxed week so far and the boys trained well last night with a high intensity.
It was good to eventually get them all together, away from a game day situation, which we have been unable to do, such has been our schedule over the past month.
We have drawn a line under the last three games in particular, and we are now aiming at putting some results together this side of Christmas to keep us around mid-table at the turn of the year.”
Gill also admitted he is close to seeing some of his wounded players return to action and he hopes to have a full squad available again inside the next fortnight.
Rangers central defender James Piercy is nearing a return whilst Danny Norton received the news he does not require surgery on the wrist he broke in the 1-1 draw at Pickering Town, cutting his recovery time, whilst James Whittingham and Chris Spinks should be available tomorrow after picking up knocks last weekend.
Danny Chambers and Matty Crane however remain on the long-term casualty list.
