Prestwich made it three wins out of three and three clean sheets with a cracking performance against a habitually strong Old Mancs outfit still in with an outside chance of topping the division.
Prestwich started well, on 5 minutes the industrious Matty Brennan threaded Sean Haslam in, Haslam checked inside his man and hit a powerful shot that the keeper just tipped over the bar, and Brennan himself headed just over from the ensuing corner.
After this flurry Mancs came more into the game and started to show their quality, but Prestwich’s back line were well organised and defending well with the imposing figure of Lewis Smith providing an equally protective barrier just in front of them.
Whilst Macs had the slight edge in possession at this stage they were only manging to create half chances and Prestwich looked just as much like scoring on the counter with that potent trio of Haslam, Mike Neary and Tito Miguel always ready to burst forward at every opportunity.
On 28 mins Smith played Haslam in wide on the right hand edge of the box, the keeper came rushing out and crudely upended Haslam for a clear penalty which Miguel despatched coolly into the net.
Thereafter Prestwich had several further chances to increase the lead, especially with one terrific run down the right flank by Neary but nobody was able to get on the end of his terrific low cross driven across the box.
Former Prestwich player Uche Obidike was posing the main threat for the visitors, whilst he was being well policed by Steadman and Barrie Campbell he did go very close to an equaliser just before half time skewing a good chance wide.
Mancs for some reason left Obidike on the bench on the resumption with their goal threat largely leaving with him, and Prestwich came more into the ascendency. Having spurned a few half chances Prestwich’s second came on the hour with a typical thumping downward header by Campbell from a Haslam corner.
Mancs huffed and puffed for the remainder of the game but yet again Prestwich’s back line of Steve Lorenzini, Steadman, Campbell, and James Barlow proved to be far too great a barrier and keeper Nathan Williams had little other than routine collections to make before the end.
All in all it was an excellent performance by the Prestwich boys with every member of the squad playing their part.
