“We won’t change the way that we play.” That was the message from club captain Josh Falkingham as Harrogate Town prepare for their long trip to Dover Athletic on Saturday.
The Wetherby Road outfit were knocked out of the FA Trophy by Stockport County last time out, contributing to their own downfall by gifting their opponents possession prior to all four of their goals at the CNG Stadium.
Yet skipper Falkingham believes that playing out from the back and being brave in possession in tight areas have contributed massively to Town’s success over the last 18 months, and insists that his team-mates must stick to their guns as they bid to break back into the National League play-off picture.
“We can’t let the mistakes on Saturday affect us going forwards. The way that we play means they can happen, but we have to keep doing what we’ve done so well since I’ve been here,” he said.
“Our style of football is a big part of the success we’ve had and, as players, we have to continue to believe in what we’re doing and keep wanting the ball in tight situations.”
