Phil Brown is ready to shuffle the pack in a bid to get his Lancaster City side firing again.

The Dolly Blues have won just one of their last seven games in the Evo-Stik Premier Division ahead of struggling Halesowen Town visiting Giant Axe on Saturday. Having lost twice in a week to Nantwich Town, 3-0 at the Weaver Stadium on Saturday and 2-1 in the reverse fixture on Tuesday night, the City boss believes now is the time to give some players a chance, while intensifying his hunt for new recruits.

“It might be that a few need to come out and few need to come in whether that’s externally or players who have been waiting for their chance,” Brown said. “I can’t question the endeavour at all but some players are struggling for form and one or two might need a breather.

“The time has come for some lads to have a rest. I’ve got one or two fitness concerns and one or two performance concerns and it’s having a collective impact on the team.

“The bottom line is we’re under-performing at this moment in time.”
