Match Report by Richard Tigwell

Prescot Cables produced their best performance of the season so far when they comfortably beat Widnes in the first derby match of the season at Hope Street on Tuesday night.

Cables opened the scoring on 12 minutes, when Josh Gregory played a lovely through-ball to Sean Myler, who beat the offside trap, and his man, to finish low into the far corner.

The home side were comfortable during the first half and were dominant in possession, but only went into the break one goal up.

The second half saw Widnes come out with more intent, but the home side weathered the storm and were soon back in control of the game, thanks to a delightful free kick from Matty Hamilton on 62 minutes.

His set-piece cleared the wall and dipped into the bottom corner, beating Owen Wheeler low to his right-hand side.

The result was put beyond doubt with little more than five minutes left, when James Edgar converted a penalty to make it 3-nil to the home side, after Hamilton was brought down in the box.

The result lifts Cables to 3rd in the Bet Victor 1st division.
