Daisy Hill are looking forward to getting back into action after a two-week break when they host AFC Blackpool at the Plumb Factory Stadium tomorrow in the North West Counties League First Division North (3pm).

After ending a run of defeats with a battling 2-1 win against Steeton, Daisy manager Lee Hill is looking for his side to pick up where they left off two weeks ago.

“It was disappointing that we weren’t able to get a couple of games in on the back of the win against Steeton, as we would have liked to try and create a bit of momentum if possible,” said Hill.

“But most teams have been in the same boat over the last week or two, with lots of games being called off, it’s been a problem all across the league.

“It just came at the wrong time for us, when we were hoping to get a bit of consistency going off the back of the win, but you can only accept the cards you have been dealt, and we have to move on and go again.

“We gave the lads last Saturday off, and while we have been planning for the next few games, we are also trying to manage injury and recovery, and being mindful that have players are carrying a few knocks”.

Although Daisy posted a 4-1 win at the end of September against AFC Blackpool, who currently sit at the bottom of the league, a recent change of manager and personnel means Hill is under no illusions the Fylde coast outfit will be a different proposition this time around.

“We have had a look at AFC Blackpool recently, and we know we will need to be on our game,” said the Daisy boss.

“A new manager has come in and if you look at their recent results since then, they have been pretty good. They have lost a few games but only by a goal or two, and they are a different side to the one we faced in September and are starting to assert themselves.

“They have brought something like 16 new players in, and I know a couple of them, they are decent players, so we are expecting a completely different game to the one in September and a challenging game as well.”
