YOU ALWAYS GET A

GOOD RESULT
WITH A PINT OF

Before I look at tonight's game I would like to acknowledge your


tremendous support at Burnley.
There were 1,700 of you at Turf Moor and the noise you generated
was unbelievable - certainly the best since I have been here - and we
were very appreciative of your efforts.
I was slightly disappointed we didn't collect all three points but, in view
of the serious injury troubles, it wasn't a bad result.
Mark Innis, another of our highly promising young players, made his
debut at Burnley and had a good game slotting in well on the left.
I am hoping one or two of the injured players might be back tonight
although, at the time of writing, I cannot say anything definitely.
I received a lot of letters after the Grimsby game which is what I
expected. The writers all said they were embarrassed, and it was an
embarrassment to me.
Maybe I was to blame as I said beforehand I am not a lover of cup
competitions, and that may have rubbed off on the team.
The way in which the glayers have resrnnA-'l h-- hp-n tarrifi- Th-ir
anlruue atlu ~CIIIIIIIIIIII111I I ~ SVUUII spot on and they have given me
100 per cent and we have deserved our draws at Luton and Burnley.
One of the letter writers pointed out I had a cheek to take the players
over to the fans at the end of the match at Grimsby.
The reason I did this was because you stuck behind us throughout
and were even chopping and cheering at the final whistle when you
had every reason to have a go. You deserved a round of applause on
such an abysmal night and that was why it was done.
Injuries meant we were running out of 'keepers which is why Itook
Michael Pollitt from Notts County on loan and he has done well on his
two games so far.
Ifirst spotted Michael when he was at Darlington and liked what'l saw.
I had the opportunity to sign a couple of First Division 'keepers but
plumped to give him a chance, which he has taken.
The fact we were so short of midfield players had a huge bearing on
offering Tommy Wright a one-month contract. He can play on either
flank and he is full of enthusiasm which is what we want.
Preston have invested heavily on players and made a good start
showing why they are one of the favourites for promotion.
We lost on penalties to Preston in the lsle of Man when they looked a
useful side, and I am sure they won't be far away at the end of the
season.
Gary Peters has a large squad, so much so that he was able to field
O N T H E BAR A T A PUB NEAR Y O U completely different line-ups in their first two games on the lsle of Man.
They have too many good players for me to pick out individuals.
OR AT 'THE C L A Y T O N ARMS' Suffice to say we know it will be our toughest test so far as was shown
when they inflicted Watford's first defeat a week last Saturday.
I BEFORE OR AFTER T O D A Y ' S M A T C H
I welcome the fact the game has been delayed for three days as it
gives our injured players extra time to be fit. It is important we get one
or two of our midfield players fit.

all seem to have taken lonaer than envisaaed to clear UD. Let's
hope they all return toethGen-bloc.
We will have our largest attendance tonight with
Preston likely to have a massive following for the
short trip.
Once again I ask you to stretch your vocal
chords and get behind us. It does have an
impact and I am sure it spurred us on to
get the winning goal against
Bournemouth in our last game here.
I would like to request that both sets of
supporters behave impeccably so that
the newspaper reports feature events
on the field as opposed to off it.
Finally I would like to congratulate the
youngsters who have done so well
against Leicester, Port Vale and
Middlesbrough in the Pontins League.
Leicester included eight established
Premiership players in their side and to
beat them was an incredible result which
augers well for the future.

MANY HAPPY RETURNS DAVID!

David Cross pulled a Lat~cssh~rton for the


f~rsttime in 13 years when the club held its
photocall recently.
David has rejoined the club as Assistant
Youth Coach alongside Bill Urmson. David,
standing at 6'2", started his career with

Rochdale FC in 1969 before going on to


play with Norwich City, Coventry City, West
Bromwich Albion, West Ham United,
Manchester City, Latics, Vancouver
Whitecaps, Bolton Wanderers, Bury and
finally Blackpool.
Now Dave has returned to what he
describes as "the friendliest club in the
Football League" and hopes to build Latics'
Youth team and 'A' & 'B' sides into a force to
be reconed with, over David's 17 year
professional career, he played 553 games
scoring 195 goals along the way.
If Dave can pass on some of that
experience, the lads are sure not to go
wrong!
