Prescot Cables manager Steven Daley is looking to continue their positive displays when they host Kidsgrove Athletic.

Fortunes for the Bulls have gradually began to improve after glimpses against Witton Albion before an impressive comeback against Clitheroe to dent their playoff hopes.

They welcome Kidsgrove Athletic this weekend who are looking to apply pressure on the playoff positions. As it stands, ahead of their trip to the Joseph Russell Stadium, they are three points off Clitheroe going into the final stages of the season.

“We probably showed Witton a bit too much respect in the first-half, we sat back which wasn’t the intentions but they kept a lot of the ball,” he said speaking to Off The Park reflecting on their last two outings.

“We had better chances than what they did and in the second-half, we didn’t get going until we conceded then we had a good go. Although they were the better team on the day, we still created chances, when you have those opportunities it’s still a bit disappointing not to come away with anything. Witton were a good team on the day.

“We changed our shape against Clitheroe, we looked really bright, it was a good comeback but I thought we were desperately unlucky not to win the game. Their goalkeeper got man of the match which says a lot, we just conceded a couple of goals which wasn’t great, it was a positive performance and I feel we were unlucky not to come away with all three points.

“If we can continue from Saturday, I think the fans should be in for an exciting game,” he added.”We played really well, there’s not much between the teams in this league, take some teams out of it – anyone can beat anyone.

“You need to be at it on your day, Kidsgrove might feel they’ve got an outside chance of reaching the playoffs with their good run of form. It’ll be a difficult match and one we’re looking forward to it.

“There’s no reason why not [go in with confidence] we’ve had a couple of tough fixtures, done well in them and if we can continue like we did on Saturday, I’m confident we can get a good result. They are a good team but there’s nothing stopping us taking the points if we perform like we did on Saturday.

“Ramsbottom are fighting for their lives, any team can beat anyone on their day, if one or two don’t perform the result can go against you. I think we’ll concentrate more on what we do and if we can perform I know we can, especially at home with our crowd behind us, there’s no reason why we can’t get the three point on Saturday.”
