‘We’re still not out the woods’ – Prescot Cables boss Kevin Lynch pleased with results but rejects form claims

Prescot Cables boss Kevin Lynch praised the performance in the win over 1874 Northwich but reaffirmed their focus is on picking up results.

The Pesky Bulls picked up an invaluable three points away to 1874 as they picked up just their second away win of the season.

A Matthew Russell own-goal on the stroke of half-time was the difference as Prescot Cables picked up their fourth win in their last six outings.

They’re still firmly in a relegation dogfight sitting four points off safety and five away from Saturday’s opponents Newcastle Town.

“We always knew it was going to be a tough game against Northwich who are a good side, if I’m more honest, conditions, pitch was always tough to play in and be a free-flowing game,” Lynch told Off The Park.

“I thought the lads done extremely well I think the scoreline 1-0 flattered them. 

“When you’re going there it’s gale-force winds, I’ve never seen a slope on the pitch like what I seen, it was like the eight on an incline of a treadmill, it was unreal really.

“I thought the lads adapted to the conditions well, they never gave in and I thought they got their just rewards. 

“We definitely can’t let the complacency set in, we’re still not out the woods by any stretch of the imagination.

“It’s difficult but what it is doing is taking one game at a time, that’s what we’re saying to the players, the fans may be thinking otherwise but certainly in the dressing room and the squad we’re keeping our feet firmly on the ground, taking one game as it comes.

“We’re looking at Saturday, another tough game, I think what’s happening with the buzz at home, what we’ve always set out to do was turn Prescot into a fortress.

“It’s not a nice place to go especially with the support we’ve been having and we’ve just got to keep up the momentum.

“It is about the supporters, they don’t half lift the players and they have been lifting the players while we’ve been on this little run. 

“We’ve got two tough games coming up, we’re not looking any further than Newcastle. We’ve got to prepare right, treat them with respect but don’t be overawed, the players and quality we’ve got I think we can match most teams in the league.

“It’ll be a tough game, they’ll know the importance of the game as well but we’re just focusing on ourselves and no one else and go into the game against Mossley on Tuesday, which will be another tough game.”
