‘Let’s go on a run’ – Billy Paynter makes Runcorn Linnets admission following form turnaround

Billy Paynter hopes that his Runcorn Linnets side after their emphatic win over Leek Town.

Linnets’ hit the Staffordshire club for five thanks to Oliver Molloy’s brace with Jacques Welsh, Lewis Doyle and Will Saxon also on the scoresheet.

The won made it four wins out of six games, picking up 13 points, a tally only bettered by league leaders, Prescot Cables.

Injuries and inconsistencies have blighted Linnets’ start but last season’s beaten playoff finalists have stormed back up the table. 

Paynter wants his side to enjoy the winning feeling and put a run together. He told Off The Park: “When we played Mossley and Leek Town, yes (happy with performance). Against Hanley, I felt we were a bit flat, it’s just that bit of inconsistency at times. 

“Hopefully, we’ve turned a corner now because we have had two good results and the challenge to the players would be let’s go on a run, keeping clean sheets and enjoy this run of a winning streak.

“I was always confident (of a turnaround) and I’m confident in the players that I’ve got. Injuries have happened, as they have at most teams. 

“As long as we did the right stuff, creating chances, playing the right football, I felt we wasn’t clinical enough to finish teams off at that moment but of late, we have been.”
