10 League games in- How have City fared under the new boss?

By Media Team

By Jack Towers

After ten league games under Mark Fell, City have flourished and look a different side to the team that had a difficult start to the season.

With just three defeats in the ten games, Mark Fell has seen his new side rise from rock bottom of the table to a more respectable sixteenth.

As we have now approached the half-way point of the season, undoubtedly there is still plenty of work to be done to further climb the table.

What we are now seeing, however, is a City team that is playing progressively better football and causing the teams around them more problems.

One player who has really flourished under Fell is forward Rob Wilson.

The versatile attacker has netted six times since Fell's arrival most notably against Hyde United and Guiseley.

Ultimately, the goal for City now is to keep climbing the table and avoiding the bottom three at all costs.

We are at an important stage of the season now with plenty of games to play over the Christmas period.

Fell has recruited well in adding depth to his squad, however, including veteran midfielder David Norris.

Up next is the highly anticipated replay to Guiseley in the FA Trophy tomorrow.

Guiseley and the Dollies battled out a 2-2 thriller at Giant Axe but have been made to wait for the replay due to adverse weather.

After the last meeting, Mark Fell said: "Listen we're gonna go to Guiseley have a proper good go at them.

"We'll do our prep work and our homework again, we'll get it out of our system and we'll go again," he said.

Saturday saw City take a minor setback against a good Gainsborough Trinity side; ultimately though it was a poor game of football and a case of who would make a mistake first.

If there is one thing we have seen from Mark Fell's Dollies this season, it is that he usually responds to a bad performance with a rather good one.

With a place in the FA Trophy first round at stake, there will be no better place than to continue that tomorrow.
