Daisy Hill will be hoping to beat the weather and get back into action tomorrow, with Ashton Athletic scheduled to visit the Plumb Factory Stadium for a North West Counties League First Division North fixture (3pm).

Following a good 1-0 win at Runcorn Town last Saturday, Daisy had the disappointment of having Monday’s scheduled home game against AFC Blackpool postponed due to the frosty conditions.

But manager Lee Hill is confident his side can pick up where they left off last weekend, and they will face an Ashton side who have also had their recent fixtures plagued by postponements due to the weather, and have played just six games since mid-October.

“It would have been nice to take the momentum from Saturday into a Monday night game, as the lads were in really good spirits,” said Hill.

“Our usual training session on Tuesday was also cancelled due to the weather although that wasn’t really a problem, as we went to the gym and did some fitness work, before having our usual session on Thursday.

“We are at the stage where we are looking forward to games, we don’t fear teams anymore and the lads are itching to get out there and do the business.

“It’s no good having games off when you are searching for consistency, or playing friendlies when it’s not as competitive.

“We know Ashton Athletic have had a stop start period where they won’t have had the momentum from playing regularly.

“It’s six months since we played them on the opening day of the season, and both of us have changed squads since then, which is the same for a lot of clubs.

“It’s a time of the season when players start to move around, or clubs start bringing in players as injuries mount up. So it is difficult to take anything from that last game against Ashton, and it’s hard to judge how they will line up.

“But we are just taking it a game at a time, concentrating on ourselves first and foremost, and looking to build from there.”
