UPTON boss John Cadwallader was looking for a resolution - any resolution - to the cup game against Ashville after it was postponed the week before.
So he is not discussing his feelings about the Upton equaliser in the last 30 seconds of extra time that levelled the game at 4-4 and sent it to a replay?
'What do you think?' he said. 'You can make your own mind up.
'Teams at the bottom are winning games. Chances are that, as they turn it round, we are going to be in the bottom four.
'The cup is getting in the way. It has taken three weeks out of our season and the league games we had postponed, we would have got something out of.'
Centre-back pairing Martin Goulton and Mike Moran are still out for Saturday's match, along with Simon Andrews.
Christleton are looking forward after disappointment in their inter-county clash with Lancashire outfit Kirkham & Wesham.
The Cheshire side went down 2-0, but boss Peter Herbert does not feel it was a fair reflection on his side's performance.
'They scored after ten minutes and we were always chasing the game,' he said. 'We looked like getting back into it but then they scored right at the end.
'We weren't good enough. I don't want to dwell on that.'
Both defences were strong and Christleton were unfortunate not to tip it into extra time. Now they face Castrol away in the cup who are coming off the back of a 6-0 win.
Peter added: 'As Christleton, everybody wants to get something out of us. The pressure is on us as finalists last year - but it is the kind of pressure I thrive on.'
Blacon YC will take a more aggressive role against Maghull than in their last encounter.
Despite winning their last meeting, Blacon now have the firepower to push forward.
Boss Paul Broadbent said: 'They are very physical. We beat them but it was a close game. They came like a storm - but we're at home and have signed a centre forward.'
Chris Herbert has signed from Christleton which means Blacon can go 4-4-2 rather than the 4-5-1 that soaked up the Maghull pressure last time. Craig Warrington and Andy Owens are doubtful, but Jamie Rogers, pictured, is back in the squad.
Paul added: 'Every time we have a full side we've won.
'I'm always confident. I've got a lot of faith in my boys.'
Christleton Reserves are at home to Runcorn in division two and Upton AA Reserves are away to the Runcorn Reserves in Division Three. In the Senior Cup, Nomads are away to Boughton Athletic.
