Huntingdon are out to avoid their worst run of results for six years when resuming their Midlands Division One East season tomorrow.

Stags have slipped down the standings during a run of four successive defeats ahead of a home clash against Ilkeston at The Racecourse (2.15pm).

They haven’t lost five league games in a row since 2009 and head coach Damien Whales does not want that to happen now.

He said: “We need to get out of this losing run as quickly as possible.

“Two of the recent defeats were suffered when conceding on the last play of a game and three of the losses were on the road. We are traditionally a much stronger side at home than on our travels and we need to shake off the frustration and get back to winning ways this Saturday.

“We also cannot display the sort of poor discipline which cost us dear in our last game at Wellingborough.

“We must not allow the officiating to have the sort of impact on our performance that it did that day. We need to focus on the things we can control - not those we can’t.”
