Manchester League: Breightmet need to get streetwise
9:10am Tuesday 10th September 2013 in Other Football
BREGHTMET United boss Simon Wilcox, whose squad has been decimated by holidays, believes just a 10 per cent all-round improvement could see his side challenging for Division One honours.
United looked comfortable at half time at home to Elton Vale on Saturday but were hit by two second-half goals – the first from a set-piece – and could have been further behind but for a world-class save by Danny Taberner before Gary McShane scored their consolation from a penalty.
“The game was there for the taking,” Wilcox said. “But we are a young side and need to be a bit more streetwise, maybe 10 per cent better.”
Hensley Mills scored two first-half goals as Atherton Town maintained their 100 per cent start to the season with a 2-0 win at Chadderton Reserves.
In the Premier Division, champions Hindsford were held to a 4-4 draw at Royton Town, where Ryan Briody, Rico Stewart, Tom Valentine and Damien Queeley were on target.
