Leek Town boss Lee Caswell hopes team can bounce back in Coalville Town clash


Play-off hopefuls Leek Town are hoping to bounce back when they face Coalville Town in a crucial league fixture.

The Blues are just outside the play-off places in the Evo-Stik First Division South and the Leicestershire outfit sit in second place.

Leek Town lost 2-1 to Basford United last time out and are hoping to get a better result.

The Harrison Park side are boosted by the return of winger Omar Haughton from injury but midfielder Jon Beaumont and striker James Curley are suspended for the next three games.

Leek Town manager Lee Caswell said: “It’s something we have done before we lost 2-1 to Newcastle and then beat Stafford 2-0 two days later.

“I think we need to up the standards from the first half at Basford to get where we want to be which is the play-offs.

“We have 13 games, so to say we are in a push for the play-offs puts too much pressure on the players.

“The top four are pretty much nailed on, so it is consistency that is key to us making them.

“We are fighting to get up there and get fifth place, but it is consistency that is key.

“There are about five teams going for that position but I think we are in a really good position.”


Leek Town host Coalville Town at Harrison Park Saturday, February27, with a 3pm kick off.
