Silsden manager thrilled as side set for 3 Bradford District derbies in a row
Forrest said: “Defensively it was an enormous favorable. We have actually conceded far a lot of this season, but on Saturday we were tactically disciplined, strong and brave.
” It’s what I wish to see and if we can repeat that, we’ll limit teams to few possibilities. But it’s got to happen week to week now.”
In spite of that great protective effort, Silsden still came away from South Yorkshire with a defeat.
An annoyed Forrest said: “I felt we were deserving of at least a point. I want to think I’m sincere, and will admit if we didn’t deserve anything, however I do not believe anybody could have grumbled on Saturday if we ‘d got a draw.
” Maltby put on some pressure in the very first 15 or 20 minutes (when they scored) and then in the last 10 when we were throwing bodies forward looking for an equaliser.
” But other than that they didn’t truly problem us, and Alfie Darke didn’t have loads to do in objective.”
The Cobbydalers will not have chance to construct on that strong performance till they go to Albion Sports next Wednesday.
That one is followed by a video game at Thackley three days later, prior to a house clash with Eccleshill United on November 3.
The video game with Albion is particularly intriguing, with the club having gone through wholesale changes on and off the pitch because the departure of manager Kulwinder Sandhu last summertime, after an impressive 34 years in charge.
They were bad last season, but have now generated joint-managers Pav Singh and Ishy Hussain, as well as some quality signings, like Eccleshill defensive duo Sam Bradley and Aran Basi.
Forrest said: “Albion made huge changes after Kulwinder left. They have actually strengthened well this season, and generated proven gamers at this level.
” It’s a new look side but I know a lot of their gamers, as being from the location you build up understanding.
” They have actually got a silver lining now, and it’s no surprise they’ve been getting points this season.”
Thackley, who have simply signed skilled midfielder Mark Trueman from Silsden, are up after that, and Forrest stated: “I understand (Thackley boss) Pat McGuire well. He has a persistent group, but they have quality too.
” Mark is a buddy of mine and Pat’s and he wishes to play, but with his task at Bradford City (Under-18s coach), it was tough at times for him here.
” I really like Mark and I’m gutted as I would have liked to keep hold of him, but it’s simply one of them things.
” I want him all the very best and he might find that being at Thackley suits his schedule better.”
Discussing derbies in basic, Forrest said: “Entering into this league, the derbies versus teams in and around Bradford were what we were especially excited for.
” It’s always great to have them, they tend to be unforeseeable, and there’s good groups from Bradford in this league.”
