Harris turns his attention to busy bank holiday weekend
SALISBURY City boss Mikey Harris admits defensive errors need to be “ironed out” if his side’s fortunes are to change in the top level of non-league football.
City approach a crucial bank holiday weekend, with Aldershot Town (3pm) first up at the Ray Mac and last season’s Conference South champions Welling United away on Monday (3pm).
“I know I’m under pressure as we’ve lost our first three games, that’s the job I’m in,” said Harris.
“I understand my role and what I have to do.
“Listen, if I’m not getting results I’m under pressure – but sometimes when your backs are against the wall is when you get the best out of people and that’s what I hope I get out of my players on Saturday.”
“Aldershot is a local derby for us and their manager Andy Scott has assembled a good side under difficult circumstances. Hopefully, we’ll iron out these defensive issues and do well.
“I know we’re capable of winning games.
“At the minute the lads are a soft touch and things need to change. And if that doesn’t happen, then I will be changing things.”
Robbie Sinclair and Brian Dutton are doubtful for Saturday, while Stuart Sinclair could return.
Prolific striker Jamie White is still out and Harris added: “We hope he will be back in about two weeks.
“It’s been a massive blow for us not to have him at the minute. I just hope he gets back soon. It will be like having a new signing.”
Salisbury’s home clash with Hereford United will be aired live on BT Sport 1 on Thursday, October 31 (7.45pm).
