Daisy Hill host promotion-chasing South Liverpool at the Plumb Factory Stadium in the North West Counties League First Division North tomorrow (3pm) looking to build on a midweek win at Nelson.

The Merseysiders are handily placed in the promotion play-off positions, but they will be facing a Daisy side buoyed by their midweek victory, which pretty much ended any fears of finishing in the relegation zone.

Now, with their remaining three league fixtures all at home, Daisy skipper Jake O’Brien says the closing weeks of the season will be used as part of the preparations for the next campaign.

“Tuesday’s win was a massive relief for all the lads, you could feel it in the dressing room after that game,” said O’Brien.

“If we had lost, that would have put us under some pressure, but the win allows us to go into the three remaining home games, and enjoy them a little bit more than we might have.

“It’s been difficult at times this season. Obviously we had a new set-up with a new management team, and then we had a really bad patch when we didn’t win any games.

“We have not been good enough at home at all, we have played better and picked up more points away from home, and I don’t know what the reason is behind that.

“We had targets at the start of the season, although that hasn’t gone to plan, but we have short-term targets now, and one of those we have beaten, to have more clean sheets than we did last season.

“The next target is to beat last season’s points tally of 36 points, and I fancy us to do that.

“We also want to finish the season at the very least without being beaten, and give us a good stepping stone to move on into next season.”
