Tuesday night’s performance against Warrington has given us something to build on.

It might now be four league games without a win but having played well in patches for most of the season I thought we put it together for a whole game.

It was a good game for the neutral and it was really pleasing to fight back after going 1-0 down.

We were playing quite well but after going behind having lost our last three we could have easily lost our way like we have done in the past.

The goal was against the run of play though and we kept our heads, kept playing football and didn’t just smash it long and deservedly got back into the game.

Saturday however was a really disappointing day with the 3-0 loss at Mossley.

We did well in the first half, passing the ball about and making chances and we were quite happy to go in at half-time at 0-0.

But in the second half we did pretty much did the opposite. It was awful to be honest and wasn’t good enough.

We’ve not been able to pick a settled side much and had four or five missing at Mossley but it’s no excuse.

This Saturday we’ve got another trip to the North East to take on West Allotment Celtic in the first qualifying round of the FA Cup.

They’re the league above Washington who we beat 7-0 in the first round so should be around a similar level to us.

Apparently it’s a good pitch and we should be able to go there and play football and try and get another run going.
