Miller’s delight as albion go top

Tadcaster Albion boss Billy Miller was left feeling delighted after seeing his side surge to the top of the NCEL Premier table courtesy of a 4-1 home win over Bridlington Town on Tuesday night.

After falling 1-0 down inside ten minutes, Miller declared himself ‘delighted’ with his side’s comeback.

“It was a fantastic performance,” he enthused. “It was a real test of character after going behind but we never let the game get away from us.

“I was absolutely delighted with the desire everyone showed to get the result. We had plenty of pace and power about us and we were clinical when we needed to be.

“We were frustrated by going out of the Cup at the weekend, but Tuesday was a great chance to put things right and we’re all really pleased we managed to get the win.

“We’ve gone top but we’re definitely not getting carried away with ourselves,” he added. “We know we’re a capable side but there’s three or four other sides who want to be where we are and everyone will be looking to knock us off.

“Being top brings its’ own kind of pressure but that’s something we’re relishing.”

Starting with Saturday’s trip to Clipstone, Albion face four games in just ten days, including no less than three away fixtures, but Miller insists he is looking forward to the challenge ahead.

“The games are coming thick and fast for us so it will be tough but, if we keep going as we are, we could be in for a great year.

“We believe we can be in the title race this season,” he declared. “We’ve had a really positive start and we’ve managed to win our last four league games so all the lads are feeling confident.

“Looking at this weekend, it will be nice to have an away trip for ourselves,” added the former Harrogate Railway chief, who is assisted by former Leeds United defender, Matt Heath.

“We love playing at home but away trips help give us a different kind of test which we can’t wait for.

“Clipstone will give us a real tough task. They’ve struggled for form a little bit recently but they’re a quality side who will be hoping to be in the title mix at the end of the season. But, if we go in with the right attitude, we’re confident we can get a result.

“The fans have been brilliant with us so far this year”, Miller continued. “They’re exceptional for this level of football. To get over 300 for a Tuesday night at this time of year, like we did this week, is amazing to see.

“The club really is a great place to be at the minute.”
