Lower Breck manager Gary Moore has highlighted their determination going into this weekend’s Macron Cup clash with Congleton Town.
The Breck travel to the Bears for an earlier kick-off with a place in the quarter-final up for grabs. It will be their third meeting of the season but the last time they met, it was the hosts who ran out winners despite a positive showing from Lower Breck.
Moore notes their quality but with this competition remains their final hopes for silverware this season, something he is not giving up hope on.
He told Off The Park: “We’ve visited twice, we’ve had two good games, tight games, the last one we were outstanding on the day but was just one of those days, it just didn’t go for us which sometimes happens.
“We’ll go there full of confidence, nice early kick-off but it’s a tough away day, they’re doing very well. They just keep pulling results out the bag, won in the Vase, won on Tuesday, they come out with tight wins.
“A tough place to go but if we can go there with the same performance as last time, we’ll be in a good place come 3pm.
“It was the same fire for the Senior Cup, we were left in two cup competitions up until that point,” he said dismissing that their Liverpool Senior Cup exit has added extra motivation.
“You want to try get something out of your season, don’t you? It’s the last cup competition we’re in then it’s playing for pride in the league, we’ll try finish as high as we can.
“It could be the furthest we’ve been in the Macron, you want to give it a good go, we want to, we’ve got the bit between our teeth after the last result.”
Breck had a free weekend leaving the 4-3 defeat to AFC Liverpool to fester but the break has been a positive one as they’ve regrouped and are ready for this weekend.
Moore added: “It wasn’t good until we trained on Monday, it was a quiet weekend. We trained Monday, we had a good session in the gym on the Solly and it was good, good to see a couple of the lads pushed to their limits, it livens everyone up then the group chat comes alive.
“We’ve got a few lads back available, so probably good to have the weekend off in terms of a tough result then injuries. A tough weekend but we’re over it now.”
