Mossley joint-manager Peter Band says his side showed the quality they have after defeating Kendal Town 5-2 away from home writes Tom Feaheny.
The Lilywhites are on top of the table the Evo-Stik League North after match day one, after scoring four unanswered goals in the second half.
Band speaking to Reporter Sport talked about his thoughts after the match and said:
“Saturday was a good start for us but we can’t get carried away, as it’s only the first game of the season.
“We started well and scored after two minutes, but two quick fire goals just before half-time was a blow.
“However, we told the lads to keep playing like they were doing and we scored within five minutes of the second-half and then took control of the game.
Next weekend they face local rivals Glossop North End in the FA Cup something Band is looking forward to.
“The cup runs are more for the club financially, but for myself and Lloyd it’s the 42 league games.”
“We’ve had a good pre-season, so we need to take that into the start of the league campaign.
“We’re not going to take our foot off the peddle; you don’t get anything for beating teams in pre-season friendlies.
“Every game myself and Lloyd go into, we want to win”.
When looking at who the main challengers for promotion will be Band picked out these teams.
“Hyde United are one, Scarborough are moving back into their own ground, and Trafford will be up there again, along with Colne and South Shields, especially with the budget I’ve heard they’ve got.
Mossley play their first home game at Seel Park on Tuesday evening against Colne.
