Bedlington Terriers assistant manager Craig Heward believes the side need to go on a winning run now otherwise it is ‘good night’ to division one football.

The games are running out and Heward said he was left disappointed after the Terriers did not get anything from their Easter Monday game against Morpeth Town, again after being in a positive position.

“It is simple, we need a run of three, four or five wins, otherwise it is good night for us,” he said.

“There have been that many games since I have been here where we have been leading and then not taken anything from the game.

“Where do we go from here? We have said this for weeks now, we just can’t fizzle out of games.”

The Welfare Park assistant boss was left “frustrated” after a poor first half display, but has stated that the management won’t be giving up until it is impossible to stay up.

He added: “It is not good enough, it was another game that we should have taken something from, but we didn’t.

“If we had of picked up a point from the game today it would have been a great point. They are challenging for the title, but we have come away with nothing.

“As long as there is point remaining, I won’t be giving in, Fez won’t be giving in and we are hoping that the lads don’t give in now.”

Morpeth’s winning goal came nine minutes from time when a short corner was not picked up properly, leading to Jordan Fry having a free header at the back post.

“We haven’t reacted to a short corner, and the cross has come in and there is nobody marking at the back post,” Heward added.

“If that lad doesn’t head it in, the lad behind him would have.

“The games are running out now, we were leading 2-0 against Bishop Auckland the other night and we ended with a point.”
