Prescot Cables manager Kevin Lynch is looking to continue the momentum as things are beginning to click.
Cables have progressively been putting in resilient performances against the play-off chasers and league leaders in Runcorn Linnets and Marine.
They continue to strengthen with the addition of Ian Keaney, Harry Cannon-Noren and Reece McNally.
But for Lynch, with the visit of Kidsgrove Athletic, it marks an important clash and the start of picking up vital points turning good performances into wins.
Prescot Cables still sit in the relegation play-off position, they sit six points off Widnes who are closest in the table.
“It’s a tough game, as any game in this league is, definitely with the players we’ve got, momentum and spirit, we’re looking forward to the game but not taking it lightly by any stretch of the imagination,” he told Off The Park.
“We’re going in there fully prepared and fully focused.
“There’s a case, we’re looking at teams in and around and we’re looking to start making ground up on them. We’ve just got to, as the famous cliche goes, take every game as it comes, we’ll start with Kidsgrove on Saturday.
“Disappointing to not play Colne but we’ve kept the momentum by the training, the spirit we’ve put together. Training has been buoyant and hard, the lads are relishing it, they’re saying to me that they hope the game isn’t called off again so they can’t be put through their paces again, it shows the team spirit we’ve been striving for, we’re looking good and looking forward to it.
“I didn’t think it would take as long as it did, it’s been a lot tougher than what I initially thought and the task I had to do, how we had to bring everyone to do. It was a bigger challenge that I originally thought, I’ve been at the level so I know the level very well, it’s taken me a bit of time because I’ve been out of the level for a bit.
“I knew once we started putting our stamp on it and the quality of players that we knew could compete at this level and beyond, it’s starting to come together and it’s evident in the signings we’ve currently made.
“There’s potentially more in the pipeline but it’s good players want to come, they see what we’re all about, they see the us putting our stamp on it and they’re getting on board with us so that’s even more pleasing.
“They’ll just come in. It’s great because we always needed competition for places, when you’ve got competition you can see the intensity of players, they don’t get their comfy slippers on, great signings in terms of Reece [McNally], been at the club, knows what it’s all about probably one of the best left-backs in the league that I’ve seen.
“We’ve got Harry [Cannon-Noren] coming in on the other side, he’s got a pedigree, looks quality. It just improves how we’re going forward and we are beginning to look pretty strong.
“Another big testament was Runcorn Linnets put seven days on Sam O’Halleron and he chose to stay with us, another testament to where we’re going, so pleased with that.”
