Cox hopeful game will go ahead

25 March 2013

Manager Paul Cox is confident that tomorrow night’s match at home to Nuneaton Town will go ahead as planned.

Cox's side have been out of action for ten days, having seen games against Wrexham and Macclesfield Town fall victim to poor weather.


But Cox has been encouraged that his players will return to their league programme after witnessing over 60 people clear snow from the pitch this morning, which included volunteers, youth players and members of the RAF.

Paul Cox is speaking to Mark Stevenson

“I’m really positive [about the game being played],” Cox said this morning, at his pre-match press meeting.

“As we speak now there are people on the pitch clearing the snow.  A massive thank you must go out to those who have turned up to clear the snow.  Me, my players and staff really do appreciate them helping the club out.

“Like everyone, else, we want it on.  The lads are hungry and focussed and really want to play tomorrow night.”

On relegation-threatened Nuneaton, Cox said:  “I don’t think they’ve been beaten in the last six matches and I don’t think many teams in the top six have took many points off them at their place.  They’re a team in form.  If anyone’s coming to the ground on Tuesday night thinking that this will be a stroll in the park then they’ll need to think twice.”

In team news, Adam Murray has been classed as a doubt after suffering with a minor ankle problem, of which Cox said:  “Training’s been really intense – they’ve not held anything back and that’s pleased me.  Muz had a bit of a clip to an ankle.  I don’t think it’s too serious.”
