Selwyn: We're ready for Manchester

    Ian Selwyn believes his Leeds Maccabi side will have to play 'above and beyond' themselves if they are to clinch a place in the semi-finals of the Peter Morrison Trophy.

    Leeds face Manchester Maccabi 1st in the last eight of the competition following their 6-0 demolition of MJSL side Sporting JLGB.

    Defender Dan Ross grabbed a hat-trick, while Curtis Bitton-Price added a double before Dave Woolman sealed the win with a classy finish.

    And Selywn, who has four losers medals to his name already, says his men will have to produce their performance of the season if they are to see off their fierce rivals.

    "Sporting were a credit to the MJSL and played well beyond my expectations but we know that Manchester will be a completely different game," said Selwyn.

    "They play outside the MJSL and there is a well documented history between us with Manchester having dominated over the years.

    "We know they will be very strong and we know we'll have to play above and beyond and hope they have an off day.

    "We know we're capable of winning because we have great ability but it's all about doing it on the day.

    "We've played better teams in other competitions and beaten them but when it comes to this cup we seem to fail to repeat those kind of displays."

    Leeds were given a tough time by Sporting, who more than held their own for the opening 20 minutes of the tie. But two goals from Ross and a neat finish from Bitton-Price inside 15 minutes gave Selwyn's side a three-goal lead at the interval. Sporting tried in vain to find a way back into the contest but Bitton-Price raced through to add a fourth before Ross completed his hat-trick from the spot and Woolman added the gloss.
