VAUXHALL Motors will try to take advantage of two home games this week to continue their remarkable run.
Having spent the early months of the season in the lower reaches of the Blue Square North, they have hit a purple patch which has seen them win their last four games in a row and rise to 12th in the league.
Tomorrow they welcome Farsley Celtic to the Motassist Arena (3pm) before the much tougher prospect of Southport, who make the trip to Ellesmere Port on Tuesday (7.45pm).
Motors’ latest win came on Saturday at Hinckley United, where they came from behind to win 3-2.
December Manager of the Month winner Carl Macauley dispelled the myth of a curse which seems to afflict most recipients of the award as his side earned a deserved victory.
Hinckley took the lead when Dominic Roma burst into the box and picked out Andy Gooding, who made it 1-0 with a smart finish from close range. But just a minute before the interval, the Motormen grabbed an undeserved equaliser.
James Holden floated in a free kick and Rob Marsh-Evans beat keeper Chris MacKenzie with a looping header to make it 1-1 at half-time.
Lively Karl Noon was then rewarded for his tireless effort up front when he scored from a Tom Field rebound on 71 minutes.
Six minutes later it was 3-1. Noon beat his man and pulled the ball back for midfielder Jonathan Egerton to score his first goal for the Motormen.
Vauxhall were then made to sweat when Neil Cartwright scored Hinckley’s second but they held on for the three points.
Vauxhall: Coates, Noone (McFadden), Dames, Marsh-Evans, Griffiths, Holmes, Holden, Egerton, Noon, Field, Otobo (Owens). Sub: Wright.
