ECCLESHILL boss Sean Regan is delighted with his side's recent form but was left disappointed after Wednesday's 3-0 home win against Rossington Main following injury to Tom Rose.

Regan said: "It turned out that Tom has a broken leg and all of a sudden all of that euphoria of winning has gone.

"We're having it a bit up and down at the moment. Matty Storr has a hamstring injury, Jonny Irving has a three-game ban after a red card, we've got two others very close to suspension and then Tom's injury on top of that.

"It just shows that your luck can change in quick time really.

"Liam Hudson is going to be out and he's been doing a great job for us – at left back, right back, in the centre of defence, wherever we've had to play him he's done the job."

The Eccleshill manager is rightly proud of his side's achievement of winning 12 of their last 13 league fixtures.

He said: "Apart from the injury and suspension worries everything is going so well.

"We're on the best run in the history of the club, I believe. I'm not sure if anyone has checked that out but it's what I'm being told.

"Considering where we were a few games into the season we've done well. Back then we felt we were better than our position in the league reflected and we set a target between sixth and eighth.

"When we got there we pushed for fourth or fifth and, now we're joint second, we're pushing for one of the automatic promotion places. You've got to move it up and be ambitious, that's why were all in the game.

"We have caught up with our games in hand over the last few weeks and we've won them so that's put us in a good position. It's also made a little gap between us and the clubs below us – five points I think – and that's a bit of psychological edge as well.

"At this stage we're just trying to keep up with the rest and see how far we can take it."
