‘They will be looking for revenge’ – AFC Liverpool expecting a fired up Padiham

AFC Liverpool Chris Anderson believes Padiham will looking to exact revenge on his side after they came from 2-0 down to dump the Burnley side out of the FA Cup.

Ryan McKenna and Jamie Ramwell put the hosts in front in August in the Extra Preliminary Round of the FA Cup before three second half goals from Dan Cockerline, Paul Speed and a late winner from Kyle Schorah booked their spot in the next round.

AFC Liverpool bounced back from two straight defeats to beat Longridge Town at the Marine Travel Arena after a brace from Cockerline.

On Bank Holiday Monday they found themselves 2-0 down once more before the combination of Cockerline and Schorah proved dividends again to secure a point.

Saturday’s hosts picked up their first win of the season with a 2-1 win over Burscough but could only manage a point from the Bank Holiday weekend.

“One-hundred percent [out for revenge], they won’t stop, they’ll work hard. They’ve brought in a couple and had a couple back from injury,” Anderson said.

“It will be a tough game, we keep saying the same thing because every game is going to be tough in this division and if you’re not on it anyone can beat.

“You’ve seen from some of the results that are coming out, Ashton Athletic have won their last two and they’re in the mix, they’re not that far away from mid table and moving up so anyone can beat anyone they will be looking for revenge.

“The team are doing well, if you’ve of asked me how many points I’d of wanted from the first five games, I’d say we’re happy to be where we are considering we’ve moved up the league.

“So there’s confidence, you’ve got to be up for every game and you’ve got to prepare. Hopefully we’ll have a few players back, we still haven’t had a full strength squad out yet with players being injured so I’m looking forward to players coming back and the competition for places.”
