IF any team in the Evo-Stik Premier can cope with a hectic fixture list, it’s Worksop Town, according to defender Luke Shiels.

The former Hucknall Town youngster believes that Martin McIntosh and Phil Thompson’s training sessions will be more than enough preparation for a raft of games in the next two months.

“We’re definitely fit enough,” he said, after Tuesday’s 0-0 draw at FC Halifax Town.

“No one in the league trains as hard as us, everyone puts in 100 per cent.”

The utility defender, who is playing right-back in the absence of Scott Wharton, is confident that Tigers can build momentum following their draw at the Shay.

“We want to go and win every game we play between now and the end of the season, and I can’t see any reason why we won’t start with a win on Saturday against Burscough.”

“We proved ourselves against Halifax, we can do well against anyone,” he added.

The 20-year-old has been one of Worksop’s most consistent performers of late, especially under the watchful eye of his manager McIntosh, who was a defender himself.

Shiels lauded the improvements the boss has made since arriving, adding: “We’re more confident, with a more professional outlook across the team and we’ve got better positioning.”
