Match preview: A positive start so far for The Steelmen
With two wins and one loss so far, Parkgate will be very pleased with the start so far this season. Next up, a home fixture against Worsbrough Bridge Athletic on Saturday 17th August at 3pm.
The Steelmen’s first defeat came against North Ferriby in midweek as they fell to a 1-0 defeat but there were many positives to come from the game. Ferriby, a strong side for this division, proved a tough test but the team worked well to create some chances and defend well throughout the game.
The hope is for the team to bounce straight back on Saturday against a side yet to win. The visitors lost 6-1 on the opening day to Dronfield; followed by a 1-1 draw to Ollerton Town. Their 3rd fixture was abandoned due to a floodlight failure, rather luckily for them as they were 4-0 down to Hallam.
Parkgate currently sit 5th in the league and a win can push them back in to the playoff spots, dependent on other results. With a long season ahead, there are plenty of points to play for. Though a victory will go a long a way to helping their chances come the end of the season.
