After a disappointing run of results for the Villagers their next two games have taken on even more
importance. They are quite simply make or break relegation six pointers that Ferriby have to get something from if they hope to survive. Steve Housham’s side are currently rooted to the bottom of the National League and really need to start picking up points again. The defeat at Braintree was unlucky while the loss to Dover was controversial but the players aren’t in a position to feel sorry for themselves even though they have fallen agonisingly short of a few
results in recent weeks.
Steve Housham has a real job on his hands to pick his players up off the canvas ahead of this week’s trip to Guiseley. After being separated by goal difference a few games ago The Lions are now 8 points clear of
Ferriby after winning their last two games while Ferriby have lost their last 3. Guiseley are still in the
relegation fight though which makes this games just as important for them as it is for Ferriby. The Villagers have been better on the road this season so they will be looking to sneak a win at a ground they have visited many times in the past. A win against Guiseley would drag them right back into the relegation scrap and would give Ferriby renewed hope of
Following the trip to Guiseley, Ferriby welcome Woking to the Eon Visual Media Stadium. If Ferriby do manage to get a result at Guiseley this game will be even more important. Ferriby drew 1-1 away at Woking earlier in the season so they know they can get a positive result against The Cards. Ferriby’s home form has been
disappointing recently so it will be important not to let the added
pressure of this game get to them in front of their home supporters. These next two games could arguably be the most important games in Steve Housham’s management career. If he can inspire and motivate his team to win both games he could be hailed a hero but if they lose both games they will be staring the grim reality of
relegation full in the face.
