Aiming for top 5

Gary Edgley is urging his side to end the season strongly and claim a top 5 finish.

He wants the Poachers to kick on following their return to form against Melton.

Edgley said: “It was a big game for us in terms of finishing the season in the top 5. We knew a win would would take us back above Melton, we knew Skegness had a tough away game so a win would take us back above both these teams, but it wasn’t going to be easy – after all, we lost to Melton 4-1 only 2 weeks ago and we were completely dominated throughout the game.”

The manager, who revealed after the game he would be standing down from the role at the end of the season, said he changed the team’s shape to make them more compact and also changed the starting personnel as well to freshen things up.

“We sat deeper to not allow the space in behind. We also wanted to draw Melton on to us to create our space behind them,” he said.

“I knew if we could do this it would frustrate them and the longer the game went on ,the more frustrated they would get. Then I wanted us to take the game to them in the last 20 minutes and get the win, and the game plan worked perfectly.”

Edgley added: “The biggest thing I was pleased with on Saturday was the levels of work that my players showed, giving me everything to make sure we got the result – and that’s what we have been doing all season. If I’m honest, that hasn’t been there enough from everyone over the last few weeks and that’s showed in our performances and results.

“I’m hoping this has turned the corner from our mini slump and we can finish the season off strongly now and be in that top 5, which for us competing in the strongest ever UCL Premier League would be an amazing achievement for everyone involved with the club.”
