Harrogate Railway have a new dribbling star who bullish boss Billy Miller reckons will slam dunk opposition defences.

Harrogate Railway have a new dribbling star who bullish boss Billy Miller reckons will slam dunk opposition defences.

Railway received international clearance this week to sign Welsh winger Michael Jordan.

And the diminutive winger will come straight into Miller’s squad for Railway’s trip to table topping Warrington on Saturday.

“He’s only small but he is fast as anyone we have in the squad,” said Miller.

“Michael’s been training with us for three or four weeks. He can play on either wing and he’ll be an exciting addition.”

Warrington have lost their last two matches, and Miller was confident his side could spark an Evo-Stik League giant-killing.

Colin Hunter (suspension) and Steve Bromley (injury) will miss the trip .

“It’s going to be really hard, but we beat the top two last year. Anything can happen,” said Miller.

“You get shocks at this time of year. We will go and play our way.”

Railway went four games without a win on Saturday when Ossett Town stole a 1-0 victory at Station View.

“If we were playing badly, I would be worried,” said Miller.

Fernando Moke’s second-half strike from a quickly taken free-kick put Railway to the sword at Station View.

Paul Beesley had earlier seen his lob bounce wide before former Rail’ stopper Sam Dobbs expertly denied Lawrence Hunter’s strike.

Miller added: “We gave away a silly free-kick then we went to sleep.

“That was the difference. We have to learn our lessons from that.

“We just didn’t create enough chances. That’s not a massive worry, but a slight worry.”

Railway remain on 27 points in Evo-Stik First Division North, 12 points above the relegation zone in 13th spot.

Warrington have lost just twice at home this campaign, but Railway have picked up points six times on their travels this season.

“Lancaster City and Darlington have beaten them in their last two games, you never know how a team will respond,” Miller added.

“Our concentration levels have to be at the highest for the 90 minutes. Every single player must be on their game.

“They are a well organised side and have brought some really good players in. They are on fire at the moment.

“Any team that finishes above them will be there or thereabouts.”
