Clitheroe boss Moore bids to bounce back
12:20pm Friday 2nd November 2012 in Sport
CLITHEROE boss Paul Moore is backing his Blues to recover from their midweek hammering – and believes there was no disgrace in their 7-1 loss at the hands of Skelmersdale United.
Nothing went right for Clitheroe as everything title favourites Skem touched turned to goals, but Moore is remaining upbeat after just a second Evo-Stik League First Division North loss of the season.
“I thought we were really unlucky, if Skem hadn’t scored seven we would have won 1-0,” laughed Moore. “It was one of those nights that come around every now and again.
“No-one likes to lose 7-1, it isn’t nice – but all Tuesday was was three points lost, nothing else.”
Moore takes his men over the Pennines tomorrow to face lowly Ossett Albion at Dimple Wells and while he knows there are no easy games, he insists his young squad has the right make-up to recover from the defeat.
“It is about going to Ossett Albion and getting back to winning ways,” he said. “We have bounced back before and I have no doubt that the lads will bounce back again. We have a young squad and are learning with each game. We have only lost two this season.”
Ramsbottom United are also on the road as they head to Lancaster.
