Experienced non-league manager Lee Sinnott says he has a points target in mind as he attempts to lead Gainsborough Trinity to National League North survival.

Sinnott, appointed after the sacking of Dave Frecklington, has 12 matches in a busy two months to lead the Holy Blues out of the relegation zone. The former Port Vale and Altrincham manager lost his first match in charge to leave Trinity second from bottom and four points from a place outside the relegation zone.

But the determined boss said he knows what is required for Trinity to produce a second successive late-season ‘great escape’.

“I know in my mind what points we need to be operating in this division next year,” he said. “If you look at the games we have got left, you can’t just rely on the points at home (to stay up), you have got to be picking points up away as well.

“It is a big challenge for everybody. The big thing is for the players to work hard, enjoy themselves and apply themselves.”
