1874 manager Wayne Goodison, "We were happy with our second-half performance and the way we improved significantly. Our attacking play was decent and we were more clinical in front of goal, something we needed to do better with."

Padiham 1-4 Whitchurch Alport 

Runcorn Town 2-0 Bootle

Runcorn Town manager Paul McManus: "Today was a fantastic follow on from last weeks FA Cup win. Solid performance with goals scored and more importantly another clean sheet. I have told the lads that keeping clean sheets is massive as we have goals all over so we keep teams out we will win plenty of games and be up there come end of the season.

"We have been dealt a tough fixture list in August so it’s great to have two wins from three, a win in the FA Cup so I'm happy so far and we just need to keep pushing on and forward to improve as we go. Onto the next one on Weds night at home to Vics which will be another tough game again but one, we are looking forward too."

Rylands 5-0 Avro

Rylands manager David McNabb: "I thought today was exactly what we’ve been looking and asking for. Despite picking up two league wins to date against two very good sides in Charnock Richard and REMYCA we hadn’t reached the level of performance that I know we’re capable of for a full 90 minutes. We’ve shown glimpses and spells but not a total performance. Today we did.

"The lads gave us the reaction we asked for following last weeks FA Cup exit. From start to finish I thought we were excellent. Going forward we created lots of chances and defensively we limited a strong Avro side to a couple of half-chances. Without a doubt the best performance of the season to date and hopefully we can take that into Tuesday as we travel to Burscough for another tough game."

Barnoldswick Town 1-0 Ashton Athletic

Barnoldswick Town manager Matt Barnes: "We needed the result today not the prettiest game of football but we ground out the result, the reaction was there a few things to tidy up but we need to kick on now."

Winsford United 5-4 Squires Gate

Winsford United manager Lee Duckworth: "A good win. We started well and were clear at half-time but fair play to Squires Gate, they kept plugging away and our game management wasn't good enough.

"We have to be better in possession and learn to punish teams further when we're on top. We move on to Monday now against a very tough opponent."
