Lower Breck looking to spread Christmas cheer at Northwich Victoria’s expense

Lower Breck and Burscough battle for possession

Lower Breck manager Gary Moore is hoping they can dampen Nortwich Victoria’s Christmas when they travel to Wincham Park.

It’ll be the final game before Father Christmas hops onboard his sleigh and spreads the festive cheer with the Breck eyeing a similar scoreline to the one they inflicted on the Vics just a month ago.

A Ste Milne brace was accompanied by goals from Sam Turner, Leighton McGivern and Ryan Beigan as Moore’s side emphatically returned to winning ways in a 5-1 win.

Since that victory, Lower Breck have won their last three stretching their run to five unbeaten.

Despite the previous scoreline, but he isn’t expecting a walk in the park.

“We’ve played them this year, we were very good on the day but Northwich are a very good side, quality right through the team, they’ve got one of the all-time leading goalscorers in the league in [Carl] Grimshaw but they’ve got some good young lads,” he told Off The Park.

“We were good that day and we’re going to have to be good again Saturday if we want to get anything out of it. 

“You can’t be overconfident going there because every games different. We take confidence from that because how we’ve played against them and what we forced them to do on the day, changing their formation two or three times so we know how good we can be and how good we’ve been in this run.

“Not just playing good football but determined to get the result as well so we go there full of confidence. 

“They won’t want a team going there and beating them in whatever manner it comes but I’d expect Ste [Wilkes] to have them right up for the game, they was for our game and they were very respectful for the game, he knew we were good on the day, they’ll be right up for it that’s guaranteed.”
