Lower Breck manager Gary Moore was pleased that his side could see off a resilient Runcorn Town as they look to avenge the 5-1 defeat to Longridge Town earlier in the campaign.

There were three goals in seven minutes at Anfield Sports on Saturday as Sean Miller, bagged his first since returning from injury, and Ste Milne fired Breck into the lead in the opening 10 minutes with the visitors clawing a goal back in between.

Sam Turner completed the scoring late on to save any jitters in the latter stages.

It was a fourth successive with for the Breck as they quietly edge closer to the leading pack with the current margin at 10 points.

But Moore isn’t getting sucked into the talk but will have to wait to rectify 5-1 drubbing they suffered to the hands of this weekend’s opponents earlier this season after the Longridge postponement.

“Yeah good win, once again conditions played a massive part in the game, spoilt it but both teams tried to play,” he told Off The Park.

“Thought Runcorn were good as well, I know their manager weren’t happy with the performance but they caused us problems. The game was a bit crazy to start, think it was three goals in seven minutes but it was a good game considering the conditions. 

“Good to get Sean [Miller] back, got injured on his debut when he scored two. It was always the case of waiting for him to get back in and he wanted to wait till he was ready, we’ve seen a big difference when he’s been back in the team.

“We’ve played a few different formations and the one we’re playing at the minute is suiting Sean, he’s probably used to being a 10 but we’ve got him playing an eight and a 10, a little bit deeper at times.

“Obviously Ste Milne and Sam Turner, can’t speak no more about Sam, his work rate is phenomenal, he’s all over the park and he’s getting his reward with his goals. That was a relief on Saturday when the third goal went in, it was relief you could feel it because Runcorn were causing us problems. 

“We’re getting a lot of people saying it, we’re sixth, 10 points behind second. You’ve still got to play them, we say it every week, every game is massive.

“If you would’ve asked me seven games ago would we go on a four-game winning streak, I would’ve said no. We’re in a good place, unbeaten in five, four wins on the spin, we’ve beaten some good sides on the way and we’ve got some good sides to play.

“We’re quietly confident we can keep going on this run but it’s up to the lads to keep performing, if we keep performing maybe we’ll keep winning games. 

“They’ve beat us 5-1 at our place, we were down and had a man sent off but the final result doesn’t show that. We’ve got to go there and look to put that right because it’s not a good result for us, we’ll go there with the intentions to get another win.

“They’re probably not having the best season, they’d admit that themselves, but they’re still a dangerous side.”
