If we can draw our away games and win our home games then I don’t think we’ll be too far away.

That’s what we managed to do at Ossett Albion on Saturday before the home game against Burscough on Tuesday night.

On Saturday we went ahead twice at a difficult place to go in Ossett.

They’re one of the lower sides in the league but there are not bad sides in this division.

It was really frustrating to not get the three points though so to bounce back like we did on Tuesday night was really pleasing.

It was an example of how we can play and what we can do to teams when we find our form.

We knocked the ball about, played plenty of one and two touch football and they couldn’t live with us to be honest.

Everything seemed to click and we could have had a few more.

It was disappointing not to get the clean sheet with the penalty but we played some nice football and scored some good goals.

Passing is something that we’ve been working on in training.

It’s what’s being preached to us. We don’t need to rush and can wear down teams by keeping the ball.

We can’t rest on our laurels after Tuesday’s win though because it will be a tough game at Droylsden on Saturday.

They’ve been a bit up and down. In the first couple of weeks of the season they won 7-1 then lost 6-0. 
They’re up in second now but there’s no teams that we fear and if we carry on the kind of form we showed on Tuesday there’s no reason why we can’t go and get something.
