Morley Gets The Reaction He Was After From His Salford City Side

Salford City joint-manager Bernard Morley was delighted as the Ammies kept their place at top of the Vanarama National League North after defeating Alfreton Town.

The 3-2 win came thanks to goals from Danny Livesey, Jack Redshaw and Gus Mafuta, with City conceding when 3-1 with moments to go, writes Tom Feaheny.

“I’m delighted, obviously we’ve been beat back-to-back and it’s about how we’re going to react, " Morley told the club's website.

“The most important thing is going to be the three points – coming to Alfreton it’s never going to be easy, we know that. Was it a concern that we had to make so many changes because of injuries and suspensions? Not really, no, and it justifies having that strength and depth in the squad, having the players to come in and do a job, and that’s the case today.”

Standards are high at Salford City with Morley saying he was disappointed to see them concede with moments to go.

“We didn’t clear our lines and before you know it they’ve made it 3-2 with 15 seconds to go and anything can happen. But I don’t want to say too much about the negatives, I want to take the positives out of it which is that it’s a great three points away, and to score three goals is a massive plus."#
