Alan Devonshire has said it’s hard to put his finger on the reasons for Maidenhead United’s poor run of form, but he’s hoping they’ll have some luck on their side against in-form Halifax Town on Saturday.
The Magpies suffered a 2-0 defeat at Barrow on Saturday, John Rooney and Scott Quigley netting either side of half-time at Holker Street.
It stretches the Magpies winless run in the National League to six matches – something Devonshire warned might happen in such a competitive league. But he knows the rot must be stopped soon if they want to avoid being dragged further down the table.
“We maybe got the rub of the green in the opening weeks of the season but we’re not getting it now,” he said. “That’s the National League for you.
“Chesterfield went through a poor spell at the start of the season and it looks like we’re going through it now.”
