Wilson still looking for improvement
ILKESTON boss Kevin Wilson says he wasn't satisfied with his side's performance in the Derbyshire Senior Cup on Tuesday night, despite an emphatic 7-0 victory against Heanor Town.
Although admitting that the league is his number one priority, Wilson selected his strongest line-up for the tie to give his players some much-needed game time after what has been an enforced winter break.
But he is pleased to be returning to league action this weekend with the visit of Stafford Rangers, as Ilkeston look to continue where they left off before the winter weather arrived.
He said: "We had a clean sheet and seven goals but I wasn't happy with individuals or the team collectively, if I'm honest.

"We were too open and a bit sloppy at times but we've had three weeks without a game so the game was a good chance to get the cobwebs out.
"It's been frustrating for everyone because we've been on a really good run and now we've had a mini break.
"People in football have been crying out for a winter break for a long time but non-league is different because it's hard to get everyone together and the players often work full-time as well so it's difficult."
Wilson is still actively looking to strengthen his squad as they look to mount a play-off push in the final third of the season.
But ahead of tomorrow's game he is insistent that the players only need to focus on themselves and their own performances.
"Stafford Rangers have been in the same situation as us the last few weeks but they played against Hednesford in the Staffordshire Senior Cup and got 90 minutes under their belts, too.
"We have an important month coming up and we just want to continue in the same vein.
"Like I've said, it's about us and what we do."
