Harrogate Town manager Simon Weaver feels that his squad is in a good place heading into Tuesday night’s National League clash at Chesterfield.
The Wetherby Road outfit sit second in the table, five points clear of third-placed Yeovil Town having played a game less, knowing that victory against the Spireites would trim leaders Barrow’s advantage at the summit to five points.
And, after Saturday’s thrilling 3-2 success at AFC Fylde propelled them into the semi-finals of the FA Trophy, Town are approaching 2019/20’s home straight fighting on two fronts, and with all very much still to play for.
“The lads are just looking forward to each game because to have something riding on every match, that’s the way that you want it to be,” Weaver said.
“We’re in a position where we’re trying to consolidate a top-three position [in the National League] for the first time in our history and at the same time, you never know, if we can put a bit more pressure on Barrow – we’re not expected to do so – but it would be great if we could.”
