GREAT Harwood boss John Hughes is urging his players to make the most of their adopted home.
Harwood are again ground-sharing at Accrington Stanley this season but are yet to enjoy a league victory at the Interlink Express Stadium.
Promotion hopefuls Winsford United won't make it easy for Hughes's men to break their duck in the NWCL Division Two on Saturday.
But the Harwood manager admits that his side must start picking up home points if they are to climb away from the bottom end of the table.
"We have to start winning our home games. We have beaten a couple of sides in the FA Cup and we have got to take that into the league," said Hughes.
"We have got to start doing it quickly because time starts to run out.
"We need to get the ball down and pass it, because that's what Stanley's pitch is for."
Harwood's losing run continued with a 2-0 derby defeat at Padiham last Saturday, when Reds old-boy Denis Hill and Paul Fildes got the goals.
But Hughes was encouraged by aspects of the performance and the chances his side created.
"We had chances but we have to take them," he added.
"If we score the first goal then I think the confidence will follow, but we have to do that.
"Saturday will be a tough game because I think Winsford will be up there with FC United and Padiham throughout the season.
"So we will have to work hard and keep learning."
Barring any late injury problems, Harwood will be missing just John-Paul Fagan as Hughes looks to accelerate his re-building plans.
