Huntingdon boss Scott Witherall believes togetherness and spirit can boost their battle against relegation.

Witherall is thrilled with the atmosphere inside the Town camp even though they remain bottom of the United Counties League Premier Division table.

They picked up a first home win of the season last Wednesday when a high-class Alex Shepherd goal earned a 1-0 victory over fellow strugglers Wellingborough in a basement battle.

“It was great to get a win at home in front of our fans,” said Witherall. “We had won away at Wisbech the previous week and it was important to follow it up with another three points.

“The lads have really clicked. They are like a family and working hard for each other. That is only going to help us going forward.

“The first job was to give the lads a bit of confidence and belief, and we did that.

“The next part was to get them playing a bit of football which we again managed.

“From there it was a case of getting ourselves into a position where we are capable of picking up results and we have now proved we can do that as well.

“Now we’re looking for a bit more consistency in terms of trying to get something out of every game.”

Town were unable to follow up with another win when beaten 2-1 at Peterborough Northern Star last Saturday. Tom Stidwell hit the Town goal to halve their arrears, but they couldn’t claw their way level.

Three of Town’s next four Premier Division games are at Jubilee Park. The first of those is this Saturday when Northamptonshire side Cogenhoe visit.
