Football: Vase success can spark Dominoes' season, says boss Sibson
STONE Dominoes boss Dean Sibson is confident his new-look side are heading in the right direction.
Dominoes have yet to register a win in six North West Counties League Premier Division matches, and tomorrow take on West Midlands side Bilston Town in the first qualifying round of the FA Vase.
But Sibson believes his side have shown the right characteristics to suggest they can post a good result, and says more should follow soon with a little change in fortune.
He said: "We are not where we want to be at the moment, but we will get there in the end I'm sure.

"I have a great group of players at this club and they showed a lot of determination to come back and get draws against the likes of Glossop and Stockport Sports.
"It looked like we were going to pick up our first win at Runcorn Linnets on Tuesday, only to concede in the last minute.
The run of the ball has not quite been falling for us, but that can change.
"But I am enjoying every minute working with this team and we just need to start turning these draws into wins and we will be fine."
