‘You’ve got to perform’ – Steven Daley delivers FA Cup verdict as Prescot Cables host North Ferriby

Prescot Cables celebrate in 2-0 FA Cup win

Steven Daley is looking forward to another FA Cup home tie as they host North Ferriby on Saturday.

Cables are unbeaten in their last four, although they were made to work hard in their draw with 10-man Bootle on Bank Holiday Monday.

A stoppage-time Alex McNally header earned all the points against 1874 Northwich to kick off their gruelling weekend schedule. After a difficult start, Daley is happy with the response, he told Off The Park: “We had a bit of an iffy start with the two league defeats but since then, we’ve done really well.

“We’ve had four clean sheets on the bounce and picked up some valuable points on the way, it sort of steadies the ship and we can go again in the FA Cup on Saturday.

“We’ve played well in some of the games, the Bootle game caught up with us – we were on our last legs, the same as everyone – we were hampered by injury and illness so to get the points over the last three games was good for us. It stands us in good stead, we can go again.”

A 2-0 home win kickstarted Cables’ run in the FA Cup before easing past North West Counties opposition in West Didsbury & Chorlton.

North Ferriby are reborn following their struggles in recent seasons. They have rose from the depths to reach the Northern Premier League East, after winning the North Eastern Counties Premier Division last season.

Daley is expecting a tough game. He added: “They’ll be really difficult to play, we’re expecting a really tough game.

“We’re looking forward to it, we know it’s a game we can go and win. With our fans, it’s a massive advantage, if they’re at it and if we give them something to cheer about, it [home advantage] will be massive for us.

“You’ve still got to go out and perform, I feel like we’re in a good place and we can do that on Saturday.”
