DAVE McNabb hailed “a really good day at the office” for his Rylands side as they made it back-to-back victories on Saturday.

Blues were 2-0 winners at Northwich Victoria, with goals in either half from Elliot Morris and Freddie Potter doing the business.

The result keeps Blues in the hunt for promotion from the North West Counties League Premier Division – they are six points off an all-important top-three spot.

On a tricky surface at Wincham Park, McNabb was pleased to see his players show another side to their game.

“The result was fantastic. The performance was good in spells,” he said.

“The pitch is difficult. Obviously two teams play on it so it’s had some wear and tear and we saw that, but you can’t play expansive football each and every week.

“I thought today the lads worked their socks off, defended well and worked for each other and they showed a few glimpses of the quality they have.

“If anything, I thought we should have come in winning by three or four.

“We missed a couple of one-on-ones which is not like us but all in all, a really good day at the office.”

Morris made it two goals in as many starts for the club as he coolly slid home after Potter and Kane Drummond had combined to set him up.

The chance to double the lead presented itself when Andy Scarisbrick was sent clean through by Morris, only to be felled by Vics keeper Mike Hale inside the area.

Despite the home side’s protest, the referee awarded the spot kick and Potter stayed calm to convert.

Blues host neighbours Irlam tomorrow night and as games start to pile up, McNabb will assess his squad before deciding on any changes.

Having won the reverse fixture 2-1 on January 7, the Rylands boss says his side go into the game confident of a repeat.

“We had a few bumps and bruises coming out of that game,” he said.

“When you start playing two games a week, it does build a bit of wear and tear on the legs but it also builds momentum so it’s swings and roundabouts.

“We’ll look at what we’ve got available for Tuesday and we’ll go into that game with a ton of confidence having beaten Irlam away a couple of weeks back.

“The lads are all keen to build on what’s been two excellent team performances.”

Tomorrow's match kicks off at 7.45pm at Rylands Recreation Club, Gorsey Lane.
