WINSFORD United boss Joe Gibiliru has issued a rallying cry to the club’s supporters after he saw his side go down to another defeat on Saturday.
The Blues shipped three goals in five minutes during their 5-0 home defeat to champions-elect AFC Fylde in front of 126 at the Barton Stadium.
But Gibiliru, whose United side have not yet won in the league this year and lie fourth from bottom, says it is time to back the Blues.
“We need our supporters to get behind us and help us along rather than criticise us. Every game is a cup final so we need all the help we can get.
“Two wins will see us safe but it’s obviously case or finding those wins.”
Gibiliru described his side’s second-half display against Fylde as “awful” but was hopeful that United’s fortunes could turn around for last night’s key visit to Ramsbottom United.
The Blues’ relegation rivals all lost on Saturday and Gibiliru still believes that six points will be enough to ensure their Premier status remains intact.
Only St Helens Town, who occupy the first relegation spot and have conceded 12 goals in two games, have a chance of catching United as they have four games in hand.
“Results have gone for us recently but it is up to us to get ourselves out of the situation,” added Gibiliru.
On Saturday, Winsford host 10th-placed Silsden (3pm).
