“Worksop battled hard, but our quality in the final third eventually shone through once again” – Pav Singh on victory against Worksop

Liversedge FC assistant manager, Pav Singh, was proud of his side as they returned to the top of the league after another close battle.

However, he admitted that there is still room for improvement following the 1-0 home victory against sixth-placed Worksop Town.

On the game, Singh said: “We are really pleased with that result.

“I want to acknowledge what a brilliant atmosphere our fans created yet again.

“Worksop battled hard, but our quality in the final third eventually shone through once again. We showed what we are about, and I think we deserved the goal.”

Sedge had to wait until deep into the second half before taking the lead, which eventually came with a moment of quality from Nicky Walker.

“What a strike that was from Nicky on the half-volley,” Singh added on the winning moment.

“Nicky has incredible technique, and it was great having him back in the starting line-up.”

The assistant manager was keen to sing the praises of midfield pair Ben Atkinson and Ross Daly and made note of Atkinson’s importance to the build-up of the goal.

He said: “I have to say the forward run from Ben into the channel played a part in the goal.

“His willingness and timing of runs caused them problems, he’s so difficult to pick up.

“With Ross sitting in and securing the midfield, that really gives Ben the licence to get forward.

“Ross is also playing well and has been a real general in the middle of the park in our last few games.”

Although he was pleased with his side’s battle and grit to take the game by the scruff of the next, Singh admitted that there is some work to do, he added: “there are still things we need to do better.

“The gaffer and I have already had these discussions about certain areas. We know where we can be better and will work hard to get this right.”

Sedge go again on Saturday with a home fixture on non-league day against a Bridlington side who recently sprung a shock when they held the league leaders to a draw.
