Glenn Kirkwood and Craig Hopkins have told the Gladiators squad to roll up their sleeves and keep battling after going six games without a win and suffering their third defeat on the spin in the EVO-STIK League's top flight at Mickelover Sports.
Craig Hopkins is hoping Matlock’s weather enforced break won’t harm his side’s hopes when they kick off a challenging and busy festive programme at EVO-STIK League leaders Altrincham on Saturday, writes Ian Richardson.
Matlock Town's joint boss Glenn Kirkwood is looking no further ahead than Saturday’s trip to Farsley Celtic as the Gladiators embark on a tough five match schedule to round off the year and head into 2018, writes Ian Richardson.
Matlock may have surrendered their hold on the Derbyshire Senior Cup at Alfreton on Tuesday night but the performance after last weekend's victory at Lancaster in the EVO-STIK League suggests they are finally finding their feet, writes Ian Richardson.
Craig Hopkins is hoping two wins in four days will give Matlock Town the confidence they need to aim for a third successive victory at Lancaster City on Saturday before beginning their defence of the Derbyshire Senior Cup, writes Ian Richardson.
Glenn Kirkwood labelled Matlock’s surprise 3-0 defeat at home to Nantwich Town a disaster and insists only hard work will improve their fortunes in the EVO-STIK League’s top flight, writes Ian Richardson.
