The Lancashire Post report that Bamber Bridge captain Matt Lawlor reckons he and his fellow players will not have an issue coping with the pressure of a relegation battle.

Brig are currently in the midst of a sticky run of results which has seen them fail to win in their previous nine games in all competitions.

They have picked up just three points out of a possible 21 – a paltry return which has caused them to drop to 18th in the table – four points above the relegation zone.

Their latest tale of woe arrived on Tuesday night when they were beaten 2-0 by NPL Premier Division play-off chasers Nantwich Town.

“I don’t think it should be a problem being in a relegation battle,” said Lawlor. “If anything it should make the players feel more alive.

“Over the last few years, we have been used to having something to play for – but at the other end of the table.

“We’ve not really been used to this being at the bottom but it should liven us up.”
