VAUXHALL Motors manager Carl Macauley has set his side two targets for the rest of the Blue Square Bet North season.
The Ellesmere Port club’s highest ever finish at step two of the non-league ladder is 11th with 54 points.
Mid-table Vauxhall were just nine points short of that club record going into last night’s visit of Corby Town to Rivacre Park, which took place after the Pioneer went to press.
“We have got a couple of targets for the rest of the season,” said Macauley.
“Firstly, we want to finish above 11th in the table, which is our best ever finish to a season, and then we want to get more than the 54 points we got then.
“We are on course for that.”
Macauley felt Motors had played well enough to have won all three points at home to Workington last Tuesday.
But they were punished for a series of missed chances and went down 3-1.
“We probably played the best football we have done all season,” said Macauley.
“We should’ve had six goals by half-time. We created plenty of chances that we should’ve scored from but didn’t.”
Vauxhall’s trip to high-flying Brackley Town on Saturday was one of nine in the league to fall victim to the wintry weather.
Macauley could take positives from the postponement as it allowed Karl Noon, Chris Noone and a handful of other players carrying injuries more time to recover before last night’s Corby clash.
Motors have two North West derbies over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend.
They head to Altrincham on Friday before entertaining Droylsden on Monday (both 3pm). The Brackley game has been rearranged for Tuesday, April 9 (7.45pm).
The entire West Cheshire League and Ellesmere Port & District Sunday League programmes at the weekend were wiped out.
