Lancaster City boss Mark Fell has challenged his side to ensure they are firmly looking up the NPL Premier Division table and not over their shoulders in the coming weeks, The Lancashire Post report.

Having been rooted to the foot of the division just a few weeks ago, Tuesday night’s 2-1 win over Hyde United hauled the Dolly Blues up to 17th in the standings.

They had slipped into the relegation zone when in FA Trophy action on Saturday though, something Fell wants to see the back of sooner rather than later.

“On Tuesday night we had to drag ourselves out of the bottom three again because of teams playing their games in hand,” said the manager, whose side host Stafford Rangers at Giant Axe on Saturday.

“But I don’t want to do that every week, I want to be in 16th going for 12th or in 12th going for ninth. Then we can start to look up the table.

“We were rock bottom six weeks ago so the fact we’re 17th does display progress.”
