Having missed seven weeks of the season due to an ankle injury picked up in Town’s FA Cup defeat to Eastleigh, Jordan Sinnott returned to the match day squad two weeks ago and has a firm eye on a return to the starting XI.
“I was out for seven weeks so I’ve got a lot to make up for in terms of my personal performance. As a footballer, you always want to play, but you’ve got to bide your time. The way we’re playing now, I can see it might be difficult to walk straight back into the side but I’m hopeful I can return on Saturday.”
Sinnott found his time on the side-lines tough as he watched his teammates from the stands, but says he is looking forward to getting back into action in the promotion race. Speaking of his return to Altrincham last week, he says he was come off the bench and face his old team.
“It was great to see some old faces and play on a pitch I’m familiar with, but it was all about getting the three points and I’m glad we did that. The conditions made it hard for us, but Liam got the goal and we got the win, which was the only objective. We didn’t play at our best but that doesn’t matter.”
Saturday’s visitors Nuneaton have lost their last three matches in all competitions, but the midfielder says he isn’t worried about any potential reaction from the away side.
“I say it before any match when I’m interviewed – we only focus on ourselves. If they’ve had a bad run, then they’re going to want to come to us and put things right but we can’t think about that. They gave us a good game on the opening day of the season and I expect the same again. “
The Shaymen take on Nuneaton on Saturday at the Shay. If you can’t make the game, make sure you follow all the social media channels for live updates.
