Sheffield FC boos Jordan Broadbent says his side will come through their difficult spell and be better for the experience after seeing Club slip to a third straight defeat with a 3-0 home reversal against promotion chasing Newcastle Town in the last outing.

“I’m confident we’ll get through this tricky period,” said Broadbent. “It’s not a feeling I like losing games but I’m a confident person and I believe in the quality we have in the squad and that we will pull through what has been a learning curve for everyone.

“We’ve played a lot of the top sides, the last three games have been against Spalding, Farsley AFC and Newcastle Town and we’ve got Leek Town coming up this weekend.

“It means we will have played four games in a row against teams that are high up the table and pushing for promotion, that’s a tough run of fixtures for any side. But we’ve then got a run of games against Goole, Chasetown, Brigg and Rainworth where I expect us to pick up points and start pushing up the table.”

Broadbent felt the scoreline against Newcastle was a little harsh on his team; “I thought we were the better team for long periods particularly in the first half. We’ve not taken out chances when they’ve come and they’ve taken theirs with two of the goals coming late on when we’re pushing for an equaliser.

“I was disappointment how we conceded a couple of the goals but I can’t really fault them there an honest bunch of players and it was a very disappointed dressing room afterwards.”

Sheffield remain 17th in Division One South nine points clear of the bottom two with three games in hand.
