‘We won’t panic’ says PHC skipper
Skipper Cecoy Robinson insists PHC are not pressing the panic button despite the club losing all three of their opening games of the season.
Zebras, who hoped to be in contention for the Premier League title, were defeated by Flanagan's Onions at the weekend, leaving them rooted to the bottom of the table.
Robinson, however, believes his team have been on the receiving end of some bad luck and that the tide will soon turn in their favour.
“The results haven't been the best for us,” he said. “It's a rough patch for us and the minor things that win games aren't going our way.
“This isn't anything we can't come back from but we still need to put in the hard work in order to change things around.
“Last season we were in the mix of the title hunt, and the mindset hasn't changed. It's more about putting in the extra effort to get the just rewards from each performance.
“We have to come to grips with what needs to be done, especially right now because we're in a tough time and have to get out of it soon.”
Wolves caused a stir on the opening day of the season with a 2-1 win over Zebras and the results haven't improved since then.
A 3-1 home defeat to title hopefuls Dandy Town, coupled with a 2-1 loss to Onions has left PHC without a single point.
There may be some respite for Zebras this weekend, though, with the club set to face Dandy Town in the Dudley Eve semi-finals.
Robinson believes a victory to secure a place in the competition final could go a long way to getting Zebras back on track.
“Personally, I'd prefer to get the rough road out of the way now rather then later,” he said. “We just to get a win and we will be okay. We are PHC and we take wins just as we do losses.
“This weekend we play in the Dudley Eve and it's a good chance for us to get back on track in terms of a win and also a good performance — the two go hand-in-hand.
“A win would be a good platform for us going back into the league campaign next weekend.”
Zebras next league match is a derby clash with Southampton Rangers on October 20.
