MANAGER Dino Maamria made light of Northwich Vics’ tough survival run-in.
One defeat in six league games, which have yielded 14 points, has put Vics in a position to save themselves.
They were bottom of the Blue Square Premier for four months running, but have clawed their way to 22nd place while Halifax Town have joined Altrincham, Weymouth and Farsley as the teams Vics can catch.
They have games in hand, are the team on form, but...
Their remaining 10 games, including last night’s trip to York City, include six away, five matches against former Football League clubs and four of the last five against teams involved in play-off contention.
After blasting Farsley 4-0 there is no doubt in the Vics camp now they can survived.
Maamria said: “We played brilliantly and a result like that has been coming a while.
“It was not just that we scored goals, but we also played good football and were strong throughout the team.
“It might seem like we have a hard run-in, but it will seem the same to every club down there and, anyway, there are no easy games.
“It is not about who we play, but how we perform and at our current level of performance we will survive.
“I have always said we would. I have always been confident. There’s no doubt we can do it.”
On Saturday Vics go to Oxford United, whose reputation is bigger than their threat and on Tuesday are at Histon, where the two things are the other way around.
Northwich goalkeeper Scott Tynan, ruled out of the Setanta televised York game with a twisted ankle, will be fit by the weekend.
