Confident Lancaster City go in search of their sixth successive win tomorrow when they travel to Radcliffe Borough.
The Dolly Blues, who thumped second-bottom Wakefield 5-2 at Giant Axe last Saturday, will be expecting another three points this weekend against a side who are just one point above the drop zone.
City’s great recent run of results has seen them rise to fifth in the table – level on points with fourth-placed Farsley with a game in hand. Boss Darren Peacock has warned his side not to be too complacent against the strugglers but expects his men to brimming with confidence.
He said: “They’ll pose us different problems than the likes of Darlington at the top of the table.
“It’s funny how the fixtures have fallen, with a run against some of the top teams followed by three teams on the spin towards the bottom. Winning breeds confidence and there’s a real belief in the side now.
“We didn’t let our heads drop when things didn’t completely go our way against Wakefield and reacted really well, before finishing the game off in the closing stages.
“You don’t always have to play at 100 miles an hour all the time. It’s the three points that matter.”
City look to be at full strength, which is a boost as they also have a game on Monday night at New Mills.
