Chasetown FC take a break from league action with their trip to Rushall Olympic FC, but midfielder Dave Egan has urged his team-mates to make it two wins in as many games.

The Scholars returned to winning ways with a pulsating 3-1 win at Kidsgrove Athletic, but Egan believes Chasetown need to start putting together a string of victories.

He said:

“It was a great win on Saturday, but we know that we need to put a run together now. We haven’t been playing badly in the last couple of games and we were probably the better side in both.

“But missed chances and individual errors have been keeping us from taking maximum points – you just need a bit of luck sometimes. That’s football though.”

And if Chasetown needed any extra incentive they are sure to get in from the prospect of a match against the old enemy in the Staffs Senior Cup tonight (November17).

Egan added:

“It should be fun – games against Rushall always are!”

Stand-in skipper Egan could re-take the armband against the Pics if captain Richard Teesdale fails to recover from an illness which saw him forced off in the first half of the win against Kidsgrove.

He explained:

“Tees actually said he didn’t feel too great before the game and then he took a funny turn during it. It doesn’t appear to be anything major thankfully as he’s a big player for us on and off the pitch.”

Chasetown’s game against Rushall Olympic kicks off at 7.45pm.
