AFC Ludlow manager Dave Cooper makes striking appeal after 1-0 home defeat against Wrens Nest in West Midlands League Division Two
AFC Ludlow 0 Wrens Nest 1
MANAGER Dave Cooper is calling out for a new striker to end AFC Ludlow’s home jinx.
Cooper is desperate to sign a new attacker ahead of this Saturday’s derby against Shropshire rivals Newport Town.
He fears that one more home defeat could end Ludlow’s promotion chances in West Midlands League Division Two.
Ludlow’s record at home has been awful this term and they suf fered a 1-0 defeat against Wrens Nest on the 3G surface last weekend.
“We were dreadful at home again and I can’t put my finger on it,” admitted Cooper. “We are a different side away from home - we seem to lack ideas and spark at home.
“Nil-nil would have been a fair result but a sloppy goal after about 30 minutes cost us. Their goalkeeper made a brilliant save in the last minute and we had two efforts cleared off the line.”
Ludlow had drawn 0-0 at Wrens Nest earlier in the season. Cooper said: “If we have one more defeat at home then we might be out of contention. It’s frustrating because we are crying out for a new striker.”
Any strikers who can help AFC Ludlow’s crisis, should call Dave Cooper on 07875560398.
