Daisy Hill face another tricky double header of games in the North West Counties League First Division North in the space of three days, with a trip to Euxton Villa on Saturday being followed by a home game at the Plumb Factory Stadium against Darwen on Monday evening.

Recent results in the past couple of weeks have been disappointing for Daisy after three good wins during September, but manager Lee Hill believes the next two games offer a good opportunity for his side to get back on track.

“It’s a chance for us to put things right, and we will be approaching both games differently,” said Hill.

“There’s no point in doing research on teams and identifying strengths and weaknesses and then not setting up to exploit those.

“It’s horses for courses, and what Euxton Villa bring and what Darwen bring are completely different.

“Euxton are coming into the game of the back of a couple of poor results, but they are a good side who have been together a long time. Darwen have had some good results recently, and they are a quality side with good individuals.

“We know that they will be tough games, every game in the league is tough, and it’s going to a difficult test for us.

“Morale is a little bit low at the minute, but there are so many positives we can take from each game over the last few weeks, barring the Nelson game last Saturday, which was a poor performance.

“The good teams are consistent and it is that level we are striving to reach, but that doesn’t happen all of a sudden.

“There is a process we have to go through to get there, and grow as a team.

“It will take time, but we do have a long term plan for the next two or three seasons and this is just the beginning of it.”
