AFTER six straight losses, Great Harwood chairman Bill Holden is backing manager John Hughes to find the winning formula soon.
The Robins can't seem to scrape a win at the moment with their latest loss a 2-1 defeat at Holker Old Boys on Saturday.
They took the lead on the 18th minute from Darren Rodgers but were then undone six minutes from time to keep them in the bottom three in the NWCL Division Two table.
"If we weren't creating chances we might be despondent and it might be a problem but we are creating them," said the Harwood chairman.
"We played well in the first half and led with a good goal from Darren but then we gave two soft goals away in the second half."
The chairman was, though, impressed with the performance of midfielder Vassos Theop-hanous who is a young Cypriot on work experience at Harwood from Bury. He was on the bench when Cyprus Under 21s face Republic of Ireland Under 21s a couple of weeks ago.
And former Bury striker Yakub Khan, who was making his Harwood debut, also impressed.
Hughes will be hoping both can help his side to winning ways tomorrow (Sat) when they face a tough game at fifth place Flixton tomorrow.
They will also have Denis Hill back in their fold, who has returned to the club following a spell at Padiham.
"Flixton are one of the better sides I have seen this season," said the chairman.
"But we need a couple of good results - some back to back wins - and hopefully that will start soon."
- HARWOOD will face Marine in round one of the newly named United Co-Operative Challenge Trophy - formerly the Lancashire Marsden Trophy - on Tuesday 15 November.
The game will be played at Accrington Stanley with Marine featuring former Reds defender Steve Hollis.
