Speaking to the Trinity website, Russ enthused, "Although four is very pleasing, we've now got to go and try and make that five. I am pleased with the group, because that's what it is at the moment. Hopefully we will have Dayle come back into contention this week, if he can come through Tuesday and Thursday night's sessions." Striker, Dayle Southwell has been missing since limping out of the win against Basford United. His experience will provide the Holy Blues with another option in the final run in.

The Blues are operating with a small squad that includes long term injury duo Danny Devine and Javelle Clarke, both missing having sustained nasty breaks. "Although not through choice, a tight group with everyone involved, is certainly working for us at the moment, though the main ingredient has been hard work."

Hard work that has yielded some positive results, although Wilcox is still looking for more. "Even at 2-0 when you're watching from the touchline, you know the next goal is crucial. We knew that if we got the next goal, we run away comfortable winners, but they never gave up and we know we will be in for another tough game on Saturday. They (Whitby) will be smarting, and they'll be looking to get one over on us. They have a good record on home soil, so it will be a really difficult game."

Following Saturday's trip to the East Coast, Trinity's rearranged away game with Matlock Town is now scheduled for a week on Tuesday, 12th March for a 7.45pm kick off.
