Consistency is the main target for Dave King’s men

Tividale have been challenged to find some much needed consistency following their midweek super show.

Dave King’s men turned on the style to dish out a 7-1 beating to Boldmere and now the Packwood Road boss is hoping that proves a turning point for his side after a mixed start to their Midland League season.

“You wouldn’t touch us on the coupon at the moment,” joked boss Dave King, who takes his side to Heather St John’s tomorrow. “A month ago we lost 7-1 and then on Tuesday we won 7-1.

“I have been in football for over 30 years and I can’t work out why we have been so inconsistent this season because we have got some good players here.

“The lads were really disappointed last Saturday when we got knocked out the Vase by Stapenhill. They stayed behind for 40 minutes and had a meeting among themselves to sort a few things out.

“They are a good set of lads and they responded really well against Boldmere. We set our level on Tuesday night and the challenge now is to try to replicate that over the next few games.”

Two sides who have been consistently good so far this season go head-to-head tomorrow as leaders Sporting Khalsa head to second -placed Long Eaton United.

Ian Rowe’s Khalsa are six points clear of their hosts having played two games more and beat Lye Town 3-0 in midweek.

AFC Wulfrunians face a tough test away to third-placed Newark side who, like the top two, are unbeaten.

Lye and Walsall Wood are also on their travels away to Coventry Sphinx and Stourport Swifts respectively.
