AFC Liverpool

Runcorn Linnets Preview

AFC Liverpool begin the new year with a trip across the bridge to take on Runcorn Linnets.

It will be the fourth meeting between the two sides this season with one win each and a draw so far. The Reds came from two goals down in the first meeting back in August at Valerie Park to force a replay in the FA Cup but the Linnets went through to the next round three days later winning 3-1 at the Millbank Stadium. In the league meeting at Valerie Park, Rob Whyte gave Runcorn an early lead but goals either side of the break from James Buckley and Adam Waterhouse gave the Reds three points.

Since that league meeting at the end of November, Monday’s hosts have played just three games. There were two 1-0 wins over Winsford United and Silsden but on Boxing Day they went down by the odd goal in five in the first ever Runcorn derby as Town secured the bragging rights.
