Due to the recent severe weather conditions over the past few days the players were given the weekend off to spend with their families.

Looking closely at the schedule over the coming month Borough have some very important games coming up with valuable points at stake.

The win last weekend away at Ashton Town was a performance that contained everything. The desire, determination and discipline amongst the entire squad was a joy to watch. And if the players can repeat that standard of display on a weekly basis then anything is possible.

Brent understands the importance of remaining focused

Coming up during December Brent Peters team have difficult games coming up against Atherton Collieries on Tuesday night in the Lancashire Challenge Trophy, followed by league fixtures against Atherton LR, FC St Helens, Darwen FC and Nelson FC.

As of late Borough have also had suspensions to deal with, with Kyle Siddle, Connor Morris and Lewis Byrne all missing from the usual team sheet. And with Mason Fallon and Toby Wright still recovering from injury, the strength in depth of this group of players has never been more important as it is right now.

Jack Hayward took his opportunity with both hands

Chatting to Brent Peters after the Ashton Town game, he said; "The performance today was absolutely fantastic. Every single man gave myself and Nigel 100% from the first to the last whistle. It is displays like that which will make us difficult to beat. And the fact that we had to reshuffle things around and were still able to get this result against a top side was credit to the lads."

Callum Hewitt made a welcome return to the team with a sterling display

I spoke to Brent about those players coming into the team to get his feelings on their individual performances. He had nothing but praise for them. "What can I say, Steve. Each one of them didn't disappoint. Young Jack Hayward came into the team and was effective from the first kick and produced a fantastic finish for the goal. Callum Hewitt was up to his usual Callum self with good runing and break up play. And I must add Malachi Clarke to that list for his endless running and commitment as our number nine. But lets face it. They were all brilliant."

The games coming up will be a stern test with two at home and two away. Victories in those key games could see Borough move nicely into the top three.
