Wilson: Time Carlton started to emulate improving Matlock
ILKESTON Town manager Kevin Wilson is hoping his side can follow in the footsteps of tomorrow's opponents Matlock Town by turning around a poor start to the season and starting to push their way up the Evo-Stik Premier table.
Ahead of their home clash against their Derbyshire rivals, Wilson praised the job done by opposite manager Mark Atkins.
"Mark has done a great job there and turned their season round after a tough start," said Wilson.
"We've not had the best of starts and we really need to start to turn a corner in our season now.
"We've had a few games that we've lost by the odd goal and we've drawn our last three so we need to turn those draws into wins."
Ilkeston go into the game on the back of an encouraging point against a talented FC United of Manchester and manager Wilson is now hoping he will be able to make additions to his squad before tomorrow.
"They were the better side in the first half but we were never out of the game," he said.
"We played well in the second half and though they had a couple of chances near the end it was a good point.
"We are still looking to bring in a couple of faces and hopefully they can help us to start to push our way up the table."
