Prescot Cables forward Dominic Reid believes that the Tigers are in a bit of a false position in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division North league table.

The Merseyside club are placed 20th in the table with just eight league games to go until the end of the season.

Reid said: “Since I’ve been at the club we have picked up a good number of points and we’ve had got a few new faces around the place, so I think we are doing really well.

“I don’t think the position we are in the league reflects how we are performing really.”

The forward has been at Volair Park for a couple of months and is now only just starting to break into the first team.

He said: “It was tricky bedding into a new side.

“I’ve only just got myself into the team because of how well the other strikers have been performing. We have got a good team spirit so that will hopefully see us through.”

The Cables are five points clear of the league’s bottom two with just a month and a half of the season to go, many people would say that Brian Richardson’s men have all but secured their place in the league for next season.

However, Reid isn’t so sure following wins for relegation rivals Burscough and Goole last night. The Linnets won 3-2 at Glossop North End, while the Vikings won at league leaders Farsley Celtic.

Their next three games sees them take on both relegation threatened side as well as a trip to Tadcaster Albion, who are just three points above them in the league table.

He said: “I’m not sure if we are safe as the bottom two got good wins last night and we’ve got them both in the next week or two and if we can beat them then we should be staying up for certain.

“I think if we can take six points from those three games or even nine then we should be staying up in the First Division North for next season.”

The Cables end March with a game against Bootle in the Liverpool Senior Cup semi-final, the forward would love to make it to the cup final, however, he knows that it will be tough against Bootle who sit 3rd in the Hallmark Security North West Counties Football League Premier Division.
