1 Skelmersdale - Home on Tue Nov 08 2016, 08:44

Last night's at times feisty affair saw us achieve a much-needed and deserved win with an under-strength team brought about by injuries and, possibly, resting of key players. Well done to the players brought in - they all acquitted themselves well.

Jack was a tower of strength and is a future captain. Jordan had a promising debut and was unlucky when, out of almost nothing, his swerving shot hit a post in the first half.

For such a youngster, Brandon certainly puts himself about, proving a handful all evening, and fully deserved his goal.

Injuries to Dan and, particularly, Tom look worrying. With all subs used, Tom played a true captain's role by not coming off when he should have done.

Although we started off playing three at the back, Dan never looked entirely comfortable playing on the left-hand side and, perversely, when he came off injured, Lewis's introduction gave the team a better balance.

All-in-all, a satisfactory night's work with all of our players having the huge incentive of the cup replay and Northampton awaiting.

Agree with all you've said 100%. Highlight of the night for me has to be our 2nd goal where he could have just smashed it and missed, but instead placed it perfectly behind the keeper into the net.

Skelmersdale might have been bottom of the league but on their performance last night you wouldn't have known it, especially in the first half.

Injuries seem to be a major headache for us this season and the 2 additions to the list last night certainly won't help, especially with all the games that we've got coming up in both the league & cup.

The most important thing to remember is that our league games are just as important as the cup, regardless of how far we manage to get.

And regardless of our performances this season in the league, it is still good to see us getting a good & vocal crowd again last night.

Hopefully last nights performance & result will be the start of better things for us this season.

COYG cheers
