“Far too inconsistent…”

“Far too inconsistent…”

Returning striker Tom Pope says that the Valiants need to add more consistency to their play if they are to challenge for the play-offs.

Pope returned to action in the 1-0 defeat to Crewe and he told the media: “If you are looking to be in the top six at the end of the season then, no disrespect to Crewe but, on paper, you have to be beating them, certainly at home.

“That is six points dropped against them this season. That is not trying to be disrespectful to Crewe because their players have raised their game.

“I think we have been far too inconsistent this year and it is starting to show again.”
