Radcliffe boss Lee Fowler took plenty of heart from seeing his side match the best the Pitching In Northern Premier League has to offer.

Boro dominated large parts of the game at Premier Division leaders Warrington and created plenty of chances, only to come up short in a 2-1 defeat.

Fowler said: “At the minute, we are falling in a barrel of boobs and coming out sucking our thumbs.

“We need to start having that luck, the shots and decision making in the box.

“Sometimes you just have to turn and smack it and if it goes in off someone, that is the luck we deserve at the minute.

“The style of play, the application, the effort I can’t fault this group of players.

“We conceded again in the opening 10 minutes so we have given them what they are looking for and as soon as we address that I think this team has massive potential.

“If I was a fan paying £12 I would be very happy with the football I am seeing.”

Fowler now turns his attentions to Saturday’s meeting with Gainsborough Trinity, managed by footballer turned boxer Curtis Woodhouse, at the Neuven Stadium knowing where his side can improve.

He said: “Every time we have won we haven’t conceded within 15 minutes and every time we have lost we have conceded in the first 15 minutes.

“That is something that they have got to do as a group, I can’t do that for them.

“Did we make the right decisions leading up to that?

"I thought we played well, we played some really good football, we got punished for the two errors we had but sometimes in football you don’t get what you deserve and we were the better team against Warrington.”
