By Richard Forrester: Stafford Rangers boss Greg Clowes is hoping for a change of fortune this weekend, but admits the home clash with Frickley will be difficult.
Rangers are keen to improve their poor home form which has seen them win just once at Marston Road this season.
They are also on a current run of five games without a victory.
“This season we haven’t really had in the league any good hidings, so we’ve been involved in a lot of tight games,” Clowes said. “When you’re involved in a lot of tight games you have got to have players in the team who can just make that little bit of a difference to turn it into a win and unfortunately we haven’t been able to do that.
“I don’t think we’ve actually strung three wins together. We’ve been winning one, drawing one, losing one – mainly away from home -and of course the fans are getting frustrated because they want to go home happy, so we’re trying to correct that.
“We’ve not scored enough goals and not created enough chances. I’m looking at the league now and we’re not going to get in the play-offs, we’ll be looking to get in the top seven, eight or nine. That will be ideal for me. That will give us a good points total because we want to set a target for next year.”
