We’ve still got a lot of work ahead of us

Rob George 12th Nov, 2021

CITY chief Tim Harris has called on the Blue and Whites not to get carried away as they seek four successive clean sheets and three more points with the visit of Whitchurch Allport.

The Claines Lane side go into Saturday’s clash against the Shropshire side (kick-off 3pm) on the back of three straight shut-outs, including last Saturday’s 6-0 success of Bewdley Town.

And while the respected gaffer praised goalkeeper Adam Harrison for his role in ensuring the City wall would not be breached he urged his side to be on their guard.

“The most important thing is we don’t get carried away, we beat what is in front of us but there is a lot of work for us to do to be a complete side,” he said.

“Adam played a big part in us keeping a clean sheet against Bewdley and last week as well against Romulus, he’s been In really good form.”

Bailey Fuller was the star of the show last weekend as City romped to a 6-0 win over Bewdley in front of another record attendance at City’s new home.

His first-half hat-trick was followed up by a fourth early in the second half before Fortune Maphosa and Will Gibbons finished off the scoring in front of 710 on the day the club celebrated its community ownership in style.

“It was fantastic to see more than 700 people here, the level of football was good with a good scoreline,” Harris said.

“The most important thing is to the win the game but then to score half a dozen goals is great.

“The pleasing thing against Romulus was we made the right decisions; today we didn’t make the right decisions enough in possession to be clinical.”

“I think there’s more to come from Bailey (Fuller). He’s got undoubted talent, everyone knows he is a threat.

“He’s improving and if we can get that out of him I’ve no doubt he’ll be a thorn in everyone’s side going forward.

City’s eighth win in 14 Midland Premier Division games lifted them to third in the table, four points behind leaders Hanley Town although the Potteries side have two games in hand.

Following Saturday’s game City make the trip to Bewdley on Tuesday (November 16) for an MFL Cup clash (kick-off 7.45pm).
