Parish out to end poor trot
Kieshon Smith, Hamilton Parish coach, has called on his side to put in a 90-minute display tomorrow against North Village at Wellington Oval as they look for consistency in their performances.
With a string of four losses on the trot, Parish sit second from bottom via goal difference and are staring a big task of crawling out of the relegation zone if their run continues.
Acknowledging the importance of getting points sooner rather than later, Smith has urged his team to put in good performances, starting with their home match against the Rams.
“Every match to us is of great importance,” he said. “We must stay focused for the entirety of a game.
“The past few weeks, we haven't put in a full performance, so this weekend we have to try and get the commitment level up and work from the first to the final whistle.
“Last year in the lower division, you could shut off for a few minutes in a match, but in the top flight you can't slack off for one second.”
With two matches remaining in the first half of the league schedule, the onus will be on the players to get the club out of their plight.
“A good run of matches will have you near the top, as in our case early on, but our recent form has seen us slump to the lower half and we want to end the first half of the season on a good note,” Smith added.
Elsewhere in the Premier Division, PHC welcome Somerset Trojans to Southampton Oval, while St David's the trek to St John's Field to take on Dandy Town. The remaining match will be played at Goose Gosling Field, with Flanagan's Onions and Southampton Rangers locking horns.
