Tommy Craig said:
"I didn't think we played well in the first 15 minutes but, once we started to pass the ball about, we got on top. After I scored the first goal, more chances came our way, we had so many attacking players in the team."
On a night of extreme weather conditions at Durham City's Archibalds Stadium, Tommy Craig's men recorded their sixth successive league victory over a less experienced mackem side.
The evening began badly for the home team, with Sean Thornton being stretchered off after only three minutes the clock, appearing to land awkwardly following a challenge with Robbie Elliott.
The forces of darkness took the lead on six
minutes when Caig half-blocked a shot and Michael Proctor reacted quickest to
poke it home from inside the six-yard box.
Further goals could have followed with Viana's long range shot, plus efforts from Chopra and Cort, but our fourth win in five away league games this season didn't look in doubt.
PS - Midfielder Bradley Orr would like us to point out that despite what the Journal said, he's not Scottish. That's unless Hadrian's Wall has been moved to the banks of the Mersey!
Cheers to Willo for the info
