Goal difference could hurt Flixton, says Rosenberg
MANCHESTER ACCOUNTANTS LEAGUE DIVISION ONE
PRICE WATERHOUSE 0 AFC FLIXTON 4
Tony Rosenberg fears his side’s lack of goals could come back to haunt them after AFC Flixton opened up a five-point buffer at the top of the table.
With title rivals West Manchester and Chorlton not in action, Flixton moved clear at the summit after this routine win, thanks to goals from Rob Jacobs (2), Rob Monetti and Alex Singer.
With five games left, promotion is now within sight. But co-boss Rosenberg commented: "We need to be more clinical.
"Goal difference is worth an extra point and we are lagging behind in the goals scored column.
"Our season has been based around an organised defence and we have only conceded 10 in total. But we really must be racking up big scores against the weaker teams in our league."
Joint-manager Stuart Delmonte reflected on the result over Price Waterhouse, saying: "It was a comfortable win and it was important we made the most of some teams not playing.
"We could, and should, have scored many more. Our finishing let us down at time and the home goalkeeper made some fine saves.
"It could easily have been double figures."
