Blues boss hopes his side can stay in the mix after fifth successive league win

Phil Brown hopes his resurgent Blues can stay in the promotion mix after soaring up the league table.

Saturday's fifth successive league win consolidated Clitheroe’s position in second spot in the BetVictor North-West Division.

The season is only just over a third of the way through and the teams snapping at the Blues’ heels all have games in hand.

But with his side is going from strength to strength on the back of a 4-0 victory over Droylsden – the Blues' biggest win of the season – Brown is looking to keep the run going.

“Winning breeds winners and the confidence flows. The lads are enjoying their football,” said the Blues’ boss after a third successive home league victory sealed by three second-half goals in front of another bumper Shawbridge crowd.

“It can change very, very quickly but at the moment we’re in a good vein of form and long may it continue.

“I’m very pleased at the momentum we’ve gathered, the performances we’ve been putting in and to be winning games consistently.

“It’s very pleasing and it’s nothing more than the lads deserve. They’ve been absolutely superb.

“It’s early days and we take each game as it comes. We’re second and if we can stay in the mix that’s something we want to do.

“But we just carry on and we’ll re-focus for Atherton Colls and then we have a week off before Tadcaster in the league which will be another good game.”

The Blues get a breather from league action when they face BetVictor top-flight side Atherton Collieries in the second round of the Lancashire FA Challenge Trophy at Shawbridge on Wednesday night (kick-off 7.45pm).
