Lower Breck reflect on late drama against Congleton ahead of ‘tough’ Padiham clash

Lower Breck in action vs Congleton

Lower Breck manager Gary Moore was pleased with his side’s determination to earn a point late on against Congleton.

A rare collector’s item from Ricky Ager salvaged a draw for the Breck late on after they put on a dramatic show in the dying embers.

It was their first point in four after a difficult run but Moore explain how it gave everyone a lift at the club.

He told Off The Park: “That’s the best thing we can take from it, 88 mins 2-0 down, you’ve already had two men in the sin bin, down to nine men.

“The nine lads who seen that 10 minutes out against a big side, done very well. The two lads have come back on, subs have made a difference and got two late goals.

“Obviously, it gives everyone a lift. It’s not perfect, you’ve got to take that with the run we’re on, we’ve got to take that point as a massive positive. 

“We were 0-0 at half-time, we played against the wind so we had it second half. I don’t know how many times this season we’ve gone in level, that was the fourth game on the spin we’ve gone in 0-0 and it was a flat dressing room.

“We’ve gone out, they’re not the best goals, they’re not good goals to concede and that’s the disappointing thing.

“It’s what we’re doing at both halves of the pitch, attacking wise we wasn’t good enough, defensively we wasn’t good enough.

“Our other issue has been work rate, desire and that’s what hurt us, it’s one of those, 88-89 minutes you’re two down and you take a point from it, you’ve got to take it. 

“Tough game, tough place to go. When we beat them earlier in the season we were on a run and we were good.

“On another day, it could’ve been 10 we just couldn’t find the back of the net. It’ll be a tough, tough game, one or two missing, one or two have asked to leave the club, we’re dealing with all those things. We’re going there in better spirits, put it that way.”
