Bamber Bridge assistant boss Neil Reynolds believe the club had a weekend to forget with a defeat to Durham and also their game with promotion rivals Curzon Ashton being called off on Tuesday night.

The QED stadium side are gearing up for a trip to Prescot Cables on Saturday but Reynolds believes they are brimming with confidence.

He said: “We could not believe that the Curzon game was called off at 2pm in the afternoon.

“I was told that there was water on the pitch but we still held a training session on our pitch and it was fine.

“I know that they (Curzon) have a great playing surface and cannot understand how it is bad.

“The Durham game was different as we have been on a really good run of wins.

“I think we were too sure that we would get a win.

“You need these kind of matches to bring the lads back down to earth and we can now try to get back to winning ways against Prescot.

“I think that we should be able to go there and pick up three points.

“If we can go a similar run of form like we had before the Durham match then we can be up there challenging for promotion.”

Reynolds added that they were impressed by the bumper attendance at Irongate on Saturday.

“It was great to get more than 250 down there when you consider our attendances previously.

“I want to say thank you to all the fans for coming down.

“I just hope that they liked what they saw at the game and we showed that we can play some entertaining football.

“We just hope that they feel that they can come down again and boost the money coming through the gate.”
