Harrogate Town captain Josh Falkingham says he has adapted his game in recent weeks in a bid to try and offer more of a threat in the final third.

The 27-year-old midfielder was on target in Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Sutton United, his second goal in the space of a week having gone 13 months without one.

And, while he says that there were almost no positives to take from what was a forgettable performance at Gander Green Lane, the Town skipper was at least able to draw some satisfaction from seeing his efforts to make an impression in the opposition box come to fruition.

“We were way below par against Sutton, it’s one of those performances that you just have to forget about and put behind you,” Falkingham said.

“Obviously I was pleased to get the goal, but the disappointing thing was that we couldn’t stay in the game at 1-1 for longer and give ourselves a foothold to try and go on and get a positive result.”
