Morley: There's No Reason For Salford To Panic Just Yet

There's no reason for Salford City to panic just yet according to joint-boss Bernard Morley.

The Ammies were beaten 3-2 at local rivals FC United of Manchester on Boxing Day in an enthralling encounter.

That followed last Saturday's shock 3-0 home reverse to play-off chasing Chorley but Salford still remain six points clear at the top of the National League North.

City have the opportunity to grab some revenge when they host FC United on New Year's Day and Morley isn't losing any sleep just yet.

The joint-manager said: “Obviously we’re disappointed. We probably said this after the Chorley game but it’s all about the reaction now. FC United had a lot of desire and they were rewarded.

“We don’t need to panic - that’s the message to the lads. Yes, we’ve lost two in a row but that’s football and we’ve all been through it before.

“You’ve got to be professional and we don’t need to tell the lads how big the next game against FC United is. They’ll want to come and beat us again and it’s down to us to not allow that to happen.”
