Defender Ross Barrows has said that the FC Halifax Town squad are sticking together and has backed the Shaymen to overturn their winless this weekend at home to Barrow.
Halifax are without a win in their last ten league matches with their last victory coming against Bromley at The MBi Shay Stadium in late September.
However, Barrows has insisted that the team’s struggles have not hindered upon their work ethic and attitude.
“The lads are working every single session and they’re still 100% behind each other,” Barrows said. “They’re 100% behind the manager and working as hard as they can.”
“We don’t want to be in this situation. We want to get back to the form of the start of the season when we were winning games.”
“We just need to get back to what we’re good at, which is working hard and stopping teams playing then going and keep doing what we’re doing further up the pitch and scoring goals.”
“We do have the quality, but we’re just going through a tough patch at the minute. But, all the lads are sticking together, and it looks like we’re going to come out of the other end of it.”
20-year-old Barrows was recalled from his loan spell at North Ferriby United last week and is eager to force his way into the first-team picture.
“Obviously, with me being recalled, it’s down to me now really,” admitted Barrows.
“I need to prove in training that I am good enough and prove to the manager that he can trust me if I’m needed to play.”
“Then, it’s up for me if I’m given that chance to take it and make it difficult for the manager to drop me.”
The Halifax youth team graduate said that he learned a lot during his time with North Ferriby and felt the experience was invaluable.
“It was a good chance for me to test myself against better players, older players and more experienced players,” he continued.
“It was a good test, I enjoyed it and I learned a lot from it. Especially with the position the club were in when I was there, down near the bottom and having to fight for every single point.”
