Match Preview: Lower Breck v Longridge Town

By Ellie Hamilton

Town make the journey to Anfield to take on third placed Lower Breck on Saturday afternoon.

The two sides met at the MRG earlier in the season, with a brilliant team performace from Town ensured all three points on a cold November afternoon as goals from Paul Turner (2), Richie Allen and Tom Ince secured a 4-1 win.

Sitting third in the table on goal difference, Breck come into the game on the back of a 4-1 win at Cleator Moor Celtic last weekend.

The Merseyside club will be looking to continue their great home form on Saturday, having not lost a league game at the Anfield Sports Community Centre since the opening day of the season.

Town make their second trip to Liverpool in the space of a week, and will hope to improve on the draw picked up away at AFC Liverpool last weekend.

Jay Hart scored Town’s only goal of the game last weekend, going ahead before a penalty in the final minutes of the game gave AFC Liverpool their equaliser.

As we approach the closing stages of the season, Town sit top of the table, currently eight points of second placed AVRO, who have two games in hand.
