Buxton FC will look to put a disappointing Bank Holiday behind them when they take on Stalybridge Celtic at the Tarmac Silverlands Stadium on Saturday.
The Bucks suffered two defeats in the space of three days in the BetVictor NPL South-East Division, at home to Whitby Town and then away at Hyde United.
It means Buxton go in search of a first win of the season when Stalybridge visit – and boss Paul Phillips remains confident his side can kick-start their campaign.
“I’ve never been one not to believe in my own ability. I’ve never been one not to believe in the lads’ abilities.
“We’ve got to have a right go when we come up against Stalybridge Celtic, in what will be a hard game.”
