Pickering Town boss Tony Hackworth wants to keep the games coming as they bid to maintain their excellent run of form.

This weekend’s game is currently up in the air, as scheduled opponents Shaw Lane are in FA Vase replay action against Walsall Wood.

The Pikes will be at home no matter what happens, but they are as yet unsure whether they will tackle Cleethorpes in the fourth round of the League Cup or Albion Sports in the NCEL Premier.

Hackworth said: “I’m not bothered who we play, I just want a game this weekend so we can carry on what we are doing.

“Things are going very well for us at the moment and it is important that we maintain that.”

Pickering made it four wins in a row on Saturday when they came charging from behind to beat Bridlington Town 4-3.

The Pikes looked in trouble when they were 3-2 down with just 25 minutes left on the clock.

But Joel Ramm hit two late goals to complete an impressive hat-trick, Ryan Cooper scoring the other for the victorious Pikes.

“A couple of months ago we would have lost that game, there was no way we would have come back from that,” said Hackworth.

“They all grafted for each other though and secured a great win.”

Pickering’s upturn in form has been met with a response from the Mill Lane crowd, who have started to turn up in force to back their side.

Hackworth added: “The gates are up, which shows that we are doing something right.

“Over 250 fans turned up for the Brid game, which is great for the club and great for the lads.

“We have another home game on Saturday, hopefully it will continue.”
