Ferriby must stop rot

07:43 - 20 March 2009

NORTH Ferriby travel to play-off rivals Kendal tomorrow desperate for a win to get their promotion hopes back on track.

Back-to-back defeats have seen the Villagers slip to eighth place in the Unibond Premier Division.

A 2-1 loss at struggling Witton Albion last weekend was followed by a 2-0 defeat at home to FC United of Manchester in midweek.

It means Manchester and tomorrow's opponents Kendal have both now climbed above Ferriby in the table.

Injuries continue to hamper team selection for manager Neil Allison, and chairman Les Hare admits a tough schedule has taken its toll on the Ferriby squad.

But he insisted confidence remains high as they prepare for the long trip to Cumbria, and says the Villagers simply need a little more luck.

"Kendal are in very good form and have won the last six games on the trot, so it is going to be difficult for us" he said.
