Having not played a game for a few weeks now, the boys are eager to get back out playing once again.
This time Lichfield City face Paget Rangers in a fixture the home side can’t afford to lose after sides around them dropped points.
Manager Jamie Hawkins has discussed how important it is to focus once again on the season following on from the festive period and all the disruptions it has caused.
Hawkins said: “We hosted Bolehall Swifts in a friendly last weekend which was a really good exercise, especially with how long it has been for us.”
He recalls the statement about wanting points on the board rather than having games in hand, sadly that’s not the case for his team.
“With the weather we’ve had since November time, teams like us have suffered a real backlog now.”
Despite all of the postponed fixtures around the division, Hawkins believes this won’t impact the team’s spirt ahead of the game tomorrow.
“We’re glad to back of course, we know that we must apply ourselves well and perform to the highest level as Paget provide us with a tough test.”
With the first half of the season drawing to a close, it has certainly been a hectic one for all involved. Lichfield currently find themselves sitting comfortably in fourth place, just two points off second and third.
Hawkins is looking forward to seeing the fans back out in full force on home soil leaving them with this message ahead of the fixture: “May I wish everyone connected with Lichfield City a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”
