Yorkshire Amateur returned to the top of the Premier Division after beating a spirited Liversedge 2-0 at The Southerns Stadium in a tough encounter.
Manager Neil Sibson told The Bootiful Game “We are very happy to come away with the 3 points today after a good game of football which could have quite easily gone either way”, writes Ian Robinson.
Sibson felt that Liversedge could feel slightly frustrated after their first half display. “We came in at half time 0-0 with Sedge having the better of the play and missing 2 or 3 good chances, but I must also give credit to our defending today as we kept another clean sheet against a very good outfit.
We had the wind with us in the first half and everything seemed to run away from us because of the conditions but we always thought in the second half we would create, even though we had the wind against us .
“We needed to up our work rate, stick to our game plan and believe in ourselves which the boys did as we went on to claim the victory with goals from Flynny and Tanique .
“We had a couple of key players missing today but the lads stepped up to the task ahead and got the job done .
“We have managed to find ourselves at the top of the league but we won’t be getting carried away as there is a long, long way to go with so many good sides in this division, Liversedge amongst them.
Character, desire and belief along with some good football won this battle today but the war is far from won .
“We will enjoy the weekend and get back to the training field / gym this week in preparation for next Saturday.”
