DAN MOORE hopes the “great culture” Buckley Town have built in recent years will turn their season around.

The Bucks suffered a 4-1 midweek defeat to Rhyl to make it just one win in their last six Cymru North games and leave them one point and a place above the relegation zone.

But Moore remains confident that better form is around the corner, saying: “We are acutely aware of our league position at present, but we also know the strength of character in the group and we have built a great culture over the past two to three years which will hopefully come to the fore over the coming few weeks.”

A hat-trick from on-loan Cefn Druids winger Arek Piskorski after James Murphy’s opener did the damage for Rhyl at Belle Vue on Tuesday evening.

Jake Roberts scored Buckley’s consolation effort, with Moore ruing his side’s sloppy defending.

“We didn’t play badly in general, in possession we have created some good opportunities, but left ourselves with a very tough task going 2-0 down after 25 minutes,” reflected the Buckley boss. “The disappointment comes with the way we conceded the goals, every one of them was avoidable and against teams like Rhyl the slightest mistake will be punished.

“After going a month with no game to playing two in four days may have had an impact on the players physically, I’m sure it did in some way, and it showed in the early stages where we couldn’t get out of our half.”

Moore will hope to see Buckley tighten up at the back as Colwyn Bay visit Globe Way tomorrow.

Elsewhere, Ruthin make their way to Llanrhaeadr and Llandudno play host to Penrhyncoch.
