Harrogate Town boss Weaver pleased with vital point

Simon Weaver

Harrogate Town manager Simon Weaver believes his side's 1-1 draw at Droyslden has taken them a step closer to safety in the Blue Square Bet North.

The result means Town are now two points clear of the relegation zone with five games remaining.

Weaver told BBC Radio York: "I think we've got every chance.

"We're a together bunch and we're trying to prove a lot of people wrong and all the players are on board and fighting for us."

Fight is key to survival - Weaver

He added: "It's really important. It's key if we're going to survive."

An early goal from Alex Meecham gave Harrogate Town the lead before a Dan Gardner penalty four minutes later levelled the game.

Weaver said: "I thought endeavour and application was in abundance from the first whistle. When we got on the break we looked dangerous.

"Everybody played their part but we realise it's only a point and we've got a lot of hard work to do."
