Crucial time ahead for Durham City

Have your say

THE next four games could make or break Durham City’s season in the Evo-Stik League Division One North, writes Malcolm Pratt.

Following a fantastic October, the form of Dickie Ord’s side has been inconsistent and they are now 12th after being third at one stage.

But they go into tomorrow’s game at Woodley Sports just seven points outside the play-offs and vice chairman Ian Walker believes that a top six finish is still possible.

He said: “It was a poisoned chalice when Dickie won the Manager of the Month award in October.

“Since then we’ve been on a downward spiral although the lads are working their socks off.

“We now play four games by January 2 so we’ve got to try and pick up a fair share of points. You could say these are interesting times on and off the field.”

Ord has yet to finalise his squad, but definitely goes without Amar Purewal who is injured.

“It will be a battle at their place, but we are looking to get back on track and go into the New Year on a high,” said Ord.
