HIGHWORTH Town co-manager John Fisher says his side may need to look at alternative training options if the dreadful weather continues.

Already without a game for almost two weeks, Worthians then had their Wednesday night meeting at home to Cinderford Town called off.

They are due to visit south-coast side Moneyfields this weekend, but having looked at the forecast and knowing the state of the Portsmouth outfit’s pitch, Fisher is not wholly confident of that match going ahead either.

With such little game time behind them, he and co-boss Ross Adams could end up making new plans should Saturday also get postponed.

“The trouble is there’s nowhere outside you can train,” Fisher said. “You can’t train at Highworth because the pitches will be bad and you aren’t going to get a lot by just going into the gym because there’s not enough room. It’s no good sending them on a road run because it won’t do your legs much cop.

“If it’s called off Saturday we’ll have to get them in during the week some way to keep ticking over the legs, because fitness levels drop quite quickly if you’re not doing anything for a couple of weeks.

“Pro sides are all right because they go in every day, but amateurs don’t and a lot, with all due respect to them, won’t do anything themselves. Not many of them will be going to the gym to try and keep fit.

“What we can do I don’t know. We used the dome at Supermarine but that’s only for five-a-side football.

“It’s going to be difficult, but we’ll have to find some way of doing something to get them ticking back over again.”

Moneyfields sit third bottom but are likely safe from the drop with the bottom two well back.

As a result, Fisher says motivation may be an issue for the hosts.

“They’re below us, truthfully they’re in a position where they’re not going to get relegated,” he said.

“They’ve got nothing to gain, whereas I think if we put a run together from what I’ve seen we’ve still got a chance of getting into a decent position.

“It’s very difficult because you don’t know what you’re going to face against some of these clubs down the bottom.

“If they’re safe it can be ‘oh well’. When you play the bottom ones is when you get more of a scrap, then when you play the top ones they’re fighting to go up.

“Sometimes these games can just dribble out into a non-contest. We played at Bristol Manor Farm the other week and it was like two teams just seeing out the season at times.”
