Assistant coach Danny Ellis is looking forward to Saturday’s home game against Chester FC – and feels the disappointment following our 1-0 defeat at league leaders Tamworth last week was indicative of the progress the team has made.

“I thought our performance was very good during last Saturday’s trip to Tamworth,” said Danny.

“Their goal was a bit of a freak, coming direct from one of their long throws.

“Tamworth haven’t conceded in eight games now and you could see why, they defend very well and make it difficult for teams. They have a game plan and stick to it and they cause you a lot of problems. They’re resilient and hard working and difficult to play against.

“It’s a sign of how far we’ve come that we came away from Tamworth feeling disappointed that we’d lost against at the league leaders. We have standards that we have set ourselves this season.”

The Celts will be missing defender Rudy Misambo as they look to avenge a 2-0 defeat at Chester early in the season.  The visitors are unbeaten in six and have moved up to third in the league table – but this season results have shown that any team can beat another on their day.

“We are at home and in good stead,” Danny added. “Our home form has been excellent of late, with back to back wins against Scarborough and Bishop’s Stortford under our belts.

“We go into the game knowing we can give anyone a tough game and that we are in good form. If we can meet the standards we have set  ourselves this season we have every chance of securing a positive result and pushing on as we enter the business part of the season.”
