REACTION | “We know where we need to improve” – Pav Singh and Tom Morgan on Pontefract stalemate

Pav Singh and Tom Morgan admitted Sedge were “below par” in their 1-1 draw with Pontefract but remained positive that they would see a reaction from their team.

Lewis Whitham put Liversedge ahead at the start of the second half, however the Colls responded around 15 minutes from time through Callum Brook.

The assistant manager, Pav Singh, said on the game: “We were below par out there, I think Marske dropping points is just about the only positive from this weekend.

“We lacked that bit of quality, it was disappointing. We’ve got to be better than that and we know where we need to improve.”

Goalkeeper coach Tom Morgan agreed with Pav’s assessment but was also keen to point out the bigger picture of the season so far.

Morgan said: “The big thing for me is that we’ve kept the run going. We still haven’t been beaten.

“Yes, we’ve dropped points. However, we’re at the halfway point of the season and we’re unbeaten and have only dropped four points.

“If someone offered you that before the season, you’d have snapped their hand off for it.”

Both Singh and Morgan agreed that Kevy Tarangadzo was among the standout performers and Lewis Whitham’s game was also encouraging.

Singh said: “I think Kevy played well.

“Lewis started only his second league game and was a big threat at times.

“The bottom line is that we know where we need to improve, these guys are winners and they know that as well.

“We took a point, we’re still top of the table, and Marske have dropped points.

“We’ll work hard in training, and everyone is dying for the next game now so that they can put it right.

“We’ve started 2022 with a point. Let’s look back at 2021 for a moment, what we’ve achieved and where we are.

“We have a team of winners and they know where they need to be better.”

Morgan agreed that a reaction from their side is likely, he added: “Goals change games.

“When [Ben] Aky hit the bar, they go up the other end and score literally about 30 seconds later.

“If that chance goes in for us, the complexion of the game is different and we’re probably talking about a different result.

“It is fine margins all the time, we have seen that in recent games. That means we have to be on song all the time as teams are going to want to beat them as the league leaders.

“We have to be on the metal all the time, and they all knew in the dressing room that wasn’t the case today.

“We need to keep going. Improve a bit more, demand a bit more of each other, and stick together. That’s the biggest thing you can do.”

Liversedge FC travel to Yorkshire Amateur next where they will hope to see that reaction.

Sedge ran out 5-0 winners against Ammers at the Clayborn Ground, but Singh does not see that as any sign as he expects a different game from an improving said.

On what he expects from Yorkshire Amateur, Singh said: “They’ve evolved as a team, they’ve made changes throughout the season.

“Every team we’ve played recently have all evolved their squads since the start of the campaign, a lot of teams have been busy and tried to get players in to close the gap.

“The result from the first game goes out the window, it is a different game now.

“It’s another derby, another battle. We’ll make sure we get our game plan right and get back to winning ways.

“We’re looking forward to it!”
