RADCLIFFE Borough boss Kevin Glendon has heaped praise on Matty Chadwick after his fantastic individual season so far at Stainton Park.
Signed from Chadderton in December 2011, the winger has scored nine goals for Boro in this current campaign.
Chadwick was the shining light in Easter Monday’s derby draw against Ramsbottom United, laying on an assist for Boro’s first goal, and drew plenty of praise from his manager for his performance.
Glendon said: “Chaddy was the best player on the pitch by a mile. He’s been a real breath of fresh air this season and looked lively throughout the game. His quality really shone through and we’re really glad that we’ve got him at the club.”
With just eight games remaining in Evo-Stik Division One North, Chadwick and his team-mates sit 17th with no relegation fears whatsoever. Glendon’s current aim is to accumulate as many points as possible before the end of the season and then make moves in the summer to strengthen the squad.
The Boro boss said: “We know what we need in terms of players for next season and where we are lacking in quality. These remaining games are just to pick up as many points as we can and see how high we can finish.”
Boro have five home games remaining and four of those are against teams in the top seven, so Glendon’s side can have a real say on how the play-off picture is painted come the end of the season.
This Saturday sees an away trip to Ossett Albion, who lie one place outside the relegation zone, and the Boro manager is looking for a much better performance than their “Bury Derby” showing.
James Mullineux is expected to start for the third successive game, as the defender continues his return from the knee injury that had ruled him out from the start of the season. Sam Freakes could be in line for a start after coming off the bench on Monday to grab Boro a point with his fortunate finish.
