AFC Liverpool eye ‘must-win’ Litherland REMYCA clash after Lower Breck draw

AFC Liverpool celebrate goal against Lower Breck NWCFL

AFC Liverpool manager Chris Anderson has labelled their clash against Litherland REMYCA a ‘must-win’ after he was left content with their draw with Lower Breck.

The Non-League Reds continue to improve under Anderson as they stretched their unbeaten run to four.

They had to come from behind twice after a stunning goal from Sean Miller and a Jamie Menagh penalty saw Breck regain their lead after Jesse Dowling levelled proceedings before Anthony Lyons glanced his header beyond Josh Molloy to earn the ma point.

It was successive draws against difficult opposition as they prepare for their clash with Litherland REMYCA.

The fixture against their city rivals has been dubbed a “must-win” by Anderson as he looks to extend the gap between his side and the relegation zone.

“Good result away from home, you come out with a point, it’s positive. We’re unbeaten in four so a good result,” he told Off The Park.

“I think both teams had spells where they were on top, they scored that worldie first goal where you think you could’ve done a bit more, but he’s hit it sweet when you see it from their angle it’s a decent strike so you can’t take that away from him. I thought both teams had a little go, if it was played a little bit longer maybe we would’ve got that third, I think a draws a fair result. 

“When you look, we’ve played Wythenshawe at their place, Lower Breck just after Christmas two top teams. I’m glad we’ve come out of it with two points, obviously you’d like maximum points but you haven’t lost in either of the games so happy with that. 

“I think it was a soft pen, Louis has got his arm across and been strong winning the header and the lads gone down. Nothing you can say about the penalty itself but to give the penalty away was a bit soft.

“Jesse’s put a good ball in a dangerous area I don’t know if he’s meant to score but I don’t think he’s claiming that he’s meant it but he’s put it in a good area.

“Second was off a corner and Lyonsy got the flick on to take it past the keeper. We’re glad we’ve scored a couple off set-pieces because it’s been an area we’ve wanted to take forward in our game. Good goals, could’ve had one or two more if players made the right decisions in the final third.

“They definitely could’ve had one I don’t know how he’s missed, if that pen isn’t given and they score that it’s still a fair result, can’t say much about the goals we conceded really. 

“It’s a must-win, definitely a must-win because we’ve played teams above like Wythenshawe and Lower Breck if we can take points off them then you’ve done decent. We need to keep our distance from REMY so if we win that, then that stops them getting points on us and takes us further away from them it’s a must-win.”
