March Town boss Ashley Taylor wants to continue fine run of form ahead of trip to Hadleigh United

More news, no ads


March Town manager Ashley Taylor is looking for his side to continue their fine recent form in the second half of the season.

The Hares extended their unbeaten run in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division after a 2-0 win over Haverhill Rovers on Saturday, with a Craig Gillies penalty and Eoin McQuaid strike sealing victory.

The result propelled them into seventh spot in the table, and Taylor hopes their current vein of form can continue for as long as possible.

"I'm not really setting a target for our position," he told The Citizen.

"I spoke to the guys before the game on Saturday, and I think from our last nine games our form is top-two form.

"The challenge is to try and maintain that form and that consistency from now until the end of the season.

"We have 14 games to go and we want to stay where we are in that form table, and where we end up we'll see."

Next up for The Hares are 16th placed Hadleigh United, who will go into the game off the back of two solid goalless draws against Mildenhall Town and Walsham Le Willows.

With those results in mind, Taylor isn't expecting an easy game.

"They've obviously got two good results against two of the bigger teams that are doing well in the league, so the challenge for us is to do what Mildenhall and Walsham couldn't do and score," he said.

"We obviously want to get the three points instead of the draw."

Taylor was also delighted with his side's performance against Haverhill at the weekend after they overcame a slow start in front of another excellent home crowd.

"After the Christmas break you want to keep the momentum going, and I was really happy with the two sessions we had before the game," he added.

"It was a good win, and it's back-to-back wins against them now. They're definitely an improved side.

"We fully deserved the win. We started off a little slower than what we normally would and the first 25 minutes were quite tight, but towards the back end of the first half we started creating better moments.

"As soon as we got a feel for it and understood how we could hurt them, we knew if we kept up with those moments the goals would come and it was just a case of being patient.

"We were patient and created opportunities, and obviously we got the two goals."

Taylor also praised the impact McQuaid has made since signing for Wisbech Town
