Neil Marshall Column: Cup performances bode well for the future

We’ve got another difficult week coming up with two games on the road.

Trips to Droylsden and Warrington are never easy.

Looking back at the games so far these are the latest matches in what’s been a tough start where we’ve been battling injury.

But I think we’ve dealt with it quite well and made a decent start with plenty of positive signs for the coming games.

Droylsden are unpredictable but after good two good performances in the FA Cup we’re confident against anyone.

I thought we shaded the first game against Marske United on Saturday.

Ryan Winder got the goal late on to force the replay and I think it was the least we deserved.

They were a big, strong physical team but we limited them to a few chances across the two games.

On Tuesday night I thought the 1-0 flattered them a bit because it could have been three or four but it was just about getting into the next round.

We had a decent run last year and as well as being good for morale it is also helps the club out financially.

We’ve got a decent draw in the next round at Padiham.

They got relegated from our division last year but we know they won’t be rolling over.
