Anthony Gellman watched Manchester Maccabi 1st maintain their blistering start and said: Bring on South Manchester.
The Accountants Premier League leaders face their rivals in a crunch early season clash on Sunday.
Adam Stephens’ late winner was enough to see off Lawds. South Manchester remain on their coattails after cruising past Miam Miam Celtic 5-0.
Gellman said: “We have started well but a real test comes against South Manchester.
"They have started well so something will have to give. We feel confident going into that game. Everyone knows their job."
Gellman’s side needed Stephens’ intervention to ensure all three points.
Max Rose’s brace had put them in command before Lawds hit back in the closing stages – only for the ex- AFC Flixton man to grab the dramatic winner.
AFC Flixton put PWC to the sword in their 6-2 win. Rick Walker’s treble was enough to see them coast home.
Co-manager Stuarty Delmonte said: “It was as comfortable as the scoreline suggests. We were clinical in front of goal.”
Meanwhile, Manchester Maccabi 2nds sit top of Division One. Louis Abrahamson bagged a hat-trick while Sam Moglin and Matt Feingold hit the net in their 5-0 romp at Chorlton Athletic.
