Manager Simon Weaver is backing Harrogate Town to hold their nerve in a critical four-match spell in their National League North season.
Harrogate warmed up for a key quartet of matches against fellow promotion aspirants Spennymoor, Brackley Town, Blyth Spartans and York City with a 2-0 win over relegation-haunted Gainsborough on Saturday on an afternoon when the visitors handed the hosts some scares in front of a crowd of over 1,100.
Manager Weaver said: “You can sense the excitement and anticipation before every home game. But also, when there is that much at stake, you sense it in the crowd too and we all want it that much.
“It is important we hold our nerve and are not overcome by any nerves. There are always going to be moments in a game, especially on a surface like this, where they will be some quick passing play where the ’keeper is called upon.”
