Consistency key for Adams after Town bounce back with successive victories

Ben Tyler 21st Aug, 2019

MANAGER Carl Adams says that everything is starting to fall into place for Rugby Town, after two successes in the space of three days added to the feel-good factor around Butlin Road.

A 2-0 League Cup win in midweek over Lutterworth Town – thanks to Liam Francis and Sam Lockley goals – added to Saturday’s 3-0 league success against Leicester Nirvana, in which Dan White finished off the game after Lee Thomas fired a brace.

Adams says his team are starting to become consistent with their performances, but vows to keep heads focused on the long season ahead.

“Things are coming together nicely at the moment,” he said.

“Apart from that crazy FA Cup game at Khalsa, we have looked pretty tight defensively and we are now starting to threaten consistently at the other end of the pitch too.”

“We mixed things up a bit on Tuesday and gave some of the lads who hadn’t played much competitive football some minutes under their belts.

“We won’t be getting carried away with things though, as we know it is only early days and we face a number of testing challenges in the coming weeks – starting with a tough away game at Quorn.”

Quorn, currently tenth, have already beaten Deeping Rangers – a side who finished runners up in the division last term – so are sure to provide a stern test to Adams’ men at Sutton Park on Saturday (3pm).
