West Yorkshire League: Wetherby’s goal drought concerns Forster

Wetherby Athletic manager Mark Forster admitted he was worried that his side ‘never looked like scoring’ in their 3-0 away defeat to Horbury Town on Saturday.

Forster’s side went into half-time comfortable at 0-0 but Gibril Bojang’s second half brace and a Tom Dews goal sealed the points for the home side.

The Athletic manager said that the scoreline did not reflect the difference between the two teams.

He said: “We had all the possession but couldn’t score and we didn’t look like scoring, which is a little bit worrying. We didn’t create anything so you could not really have made a case for us.

Forster’s side face a challenging run of games in the Premier Division with Hunslet Club, Beeston and Field to play in the next three weeks.

Despite positive results against bottom half teams this season, Forster said that his side’s inability to beat the better teams was a cause for concern.

He said: “It was the same last season. We have not performed well against the big teams and I don’t know why.

“The teams behind us are getting better and picking points up. If we don’t take points off teams above us then we are setting ourselves up for a battle royale with teams below us.”
