3 matches, 3 draws and things were not looking that good. Now after 5 matches, including back to back wins and undefeated things seem rather improved. Mossley come to Borough Park in their first away fixture having had their opening 4 match winning run succeeded by 3 without a win. Interestingly their 3 FAC matches were all at home, so they have played 7 consecutive games at home.
Reds are 4th with 9 points from 5 games Mossley are 7th with 6 points from 4 games

Here's hoping Mossley's first away match of the season is a tough one. Come on you Reds.
Cant make this Saturday's game due to work commitments but notice it's already a sellout 2 days early, no doubt there will be a lot of disappointed fans again, let's hope it's not too long before they can raise the capacity to match the division above
The silence is deafening! This was a very comfortable win for us today with the major threat to us being caught out by our insistance on playing everything out from the back. But who can argue with three points and a clean sheet?
Great to read of a comfortable victory, players starting to recover from injury brings added competition for places and individual performances improve, I heard Jordan Holt had a good game,with confidence could be a standout in the long term .
This was a game that we had to win and we did it even though we did not play the classy football that we all know that Reds can. I thought that Mossley were a hard working, hard tackling team and we had to battle to get the victory. As previously said, we should have scored 4 or 5 goals. We were far more dangeerous when Matty Clarke and Dav came on. Should have been on from the start in my opinion. The club must be loosing a lot of income not being able to sell food. Why cannot the club have an outside venue to at least sell pies? Hope that the burger van is being charged a good ground rent as it is a gold mine! COYR
