Manager Brodie looking forward to them.
United have three potentially tricky ties coming up over the next three weeks, with Skem travelling to Mossley this coming Saturday 18th.
The host currently sit in 7th spot in the NPL-West Division, having slipped up in recent weeks picking up 2 points in their last 6 games. Having looked a certainty for promotion back in January. Whilst United having won 5 out 6 on their travels are just 2 points behind.
“It’s never the easiest places to go to” commented Skem Manager Richard Brodie “they are having a bad run of late but that won’t detract from what we have to do, we will be on our guard and are expecting a very tricky tie. We got all 3 points against them at our place back in October and we know how hard they battle”.
United would go above Mossley should they win and if other results go in their favour could find themselves in 7th spot come Saturday night.
“We are not getting carried away with ourselves, our main objective this season was staying in the division, but a win will give the lads a massive boost for next week when we face Macclesfield”.
Macclesfield come to the Burscough Community Stadium on Sat 25th, the league leaders are sure to bring a sizeable following, “We want the supporters of Skem to turn up on the day, make yourself heard”. “To be honest it’s a bit of a free hit for us, they have undoubtedly got the biggest resources in this division, other teams cannot compete off the pitch but it’s on the pitch that matters, we gave them a good run for their money at their place, we will again be working hard in training, working on a few set-pieces that might surprise them and on the day you never know”.
United have a third tough encounter when they are on the road to Witton Albion on 1st April, with the Cheshire outfit currently in the play-off places. It’s gonna be a tough 3 weeks, weeks that will define United’s season, 3 wins and they would be looking at an outside chance of a play-off place, three defeats and they might just be looking over their shoulders.
