Boss Brown pleased but still wants more creativity

contribution, but I was really pleased with all of the players. We looked solid and it was a professional and disciplined performance.

“We just need to work on our creativity in the final third a little bit.

“If we can be a bit more creative without compromising the defensive shape as such then we should be 
okay.

“We know it’s going to be a very difficult game against Prescot Cables.

“I know that they have had an upturn of form and results since their new manager Andy Paxton came 
in.

“He’s brought some decent players in and they, like us, have had a tough run of games but they’ve managed to pick up some points.

“It’s going to be tough, but it’s about us trying to build on last week’s performance and get another three points.”

The fact that City were not too potent in attack against Witton may have something to do with the fact that they started the game without a recognised striker.

Injury and unavailability deprived Brown of the services of Aaron Taylor, Danny Carlton and Matty 
Poole.

Taylor and Carlton are struggling with calf and groin strains respectively, while Poole has been given compassionate leave with his newborn son poorly in 
hospital.

“None of them will be back this week,” said Brown.

“Aaron will see the physio tonight and I will get a bit more information but this weekend is going to come too soon for him.”

Jacob Davis returns to the squad after a three-match suspension.

On Wednesday, City travel to Northwich Victoria.
