IT'S a revenge mission on Saturday for Middlewich Town.
They face Broadheath at Seddon Street still smarting from their clashes last year. Saturday's opponents won both 1-0, effectively costing Middlewich the title.
Broadheath are struggling near the foot of the Mid Cheshire League First Division - but they were in the same situation last year when they tripped up Terry Murphy's outfit.
Murphy said: 'Yes, it is revenge! They beat us 1-0 twice last year and that cost us the title. 'They are a very young side and they will be coming for a damage limitation exercise. It's up to us to come through, and it's important that we win, even if it is 1-0 or whatever - the important thing is that we get the victory.'
Middlewich kept the pressure on title favourites Barnton with a 5-0 hammering of Bollington on Saturday, a victory which thrilled Murphy - particularly as he had a rookie keeper in goal.
Australian Phil Zabos, who is looking for a club in the North West, went in between the sticks as Murphy continues his search for a keeper - though he admits Zabos isn't the answer.
He said: 'He was brilliant - he was a good keeper and he will do a good job for somebody. Unfortunately, that won't be us, as he said he is looking for a League or Nationwide Conference club to take him on, but he's only 18 and he's got a bright future in the game.'
So the hunt goes on following Barry Crellin's move to Winsford United - Murphy is quick to admit he's 'always looking for a keeper' - and he hopes to have signed one before too long.
He said: 'I'm hoping to sign a keeper this week. Young Chris Prime, our reserve keeper, is on holiday next week, so I will get somebody in before then.'
