Lee Duckworth’s post game review following Monday’s 1-1 draw to Runcorn Linnets:
‘We always knew Monday would be a tough game. We were short of 5 first team players so we had to call in a few friends to help out. Linnets are always challenging at the right end of the table with good resources. First half they had the larger share of possession but struggled to break us down at all and the fact they only scored through an error showed how strong we were defensively without us being anywhere near our best. JJ then scored a great equalising goal.
At half time we reminded the lads of how they had performed recently and what our strengths were so we were better second half. Chances for both teams were few and far between but it was a full blooded derby game played in the right spirit for most of the game.
We’ve now taken 4 points off linnets this season which is not easy to do so we have to take credit for that.
We now roll our sleeves up and go again saturday in another tough encounter at Afc Liverpool.
Follow the blues this Saturday as we take on AFC Liverpool.
