DESPITE going down to their 10th away defeat of the season on Monday Vauxhall manager Owen Brown insists relegation is not an issue.
He said: "Provided we play like we have over the last two games, over the remainder fo the campaign, we should have no difficulties steering clear of the relegation places."
The Motors manager has good cause to make that statement, as they totally dominated their home game with Lancaster on Saturday.
Had the match ended 5-0, instead of 3-1, the visitors could have had no complaints.
And then 48 hours later, apart from the opening ten minutes when they conceded two early goals, Vauxhall repeated the display at title-chasing Harrogate.
New midfielder Mike Garrity, who joined the Motormen last midweek from Runcorn, played a major role in both games, and scored an absolute cracker at Harrogate, but it wasn't quiet enough to overturn their earlier mistakes in defence.
Next up, is the visit of long-time leaders South-port, to Rivacre Park this coming Saturday. The sides met on the opening day of the new Conference North programme, which the Sandgrounders won 2-1, coming from behind to clinch a closelycontested fixture.
