Mike Fowler has urged stay-away fans to come back to Tamworth and help lift them to new heights.
Fowler has been placed in charge of the Lambs for the foreseeable future after the dismissal of manager Andy Morrell. And, while disappointed to see Morrell go, Fowler is looking to grasp his opportunity with both hands.
He has already agreed a deal to bring in a new striker, who could be signed in time for Saturday’s trip to Alfreton.
Fowler said: “It has obviously been a whirlwind couple of days. First and foremost, Andy (Morrell) gave me a massive opportunity to come into the club as his number two and I will always be grateful for that.
“I felt we have received relative success over the past few seasons and certainly the club is in a lot better place as a whole from when we came in. But my remit now is to get more success on the pitch because, ultimately, you are judged on results.
“It’s never easy when something like this happens and a manager leaves. It puts a cloud on things around the club.
“But it’s my job to lift everyone now and that’s what I will do. The lads were disappointed he’s gone because Andy’s a popular guy around the dressing room.
“But we need to focus on the future and we need to get back to what we should be doing. So my message to the fans is, if they have stayed away for whatever reason, I want them to come back.
“We need to show them it’s worth coming back to us. I hope we can have a massive turnout, away, for the game at Alfreton on Saturday.”
