DANIEL McBreen has been around too long to take anything for granted.

Although Edgeworth will take a 1-0 lead into the second-leg of their Northern NSW NPL semi-final against Broadmeadow at Jack McLaughan next Saturday, the veteran striker remains wary.

McBreen scored the winner in the 28th minute at Magic Park on Saturday, slotting home after great build-up work from Dylan Holz.

“It was nice to get a goal, it’s good to be 1-0 up but the job is only half done,” McBreen said.

Peter Haynes hit the woodwork for Magic and Kale Bradbery had a shot flash past the post.

“Conditions were tough,” McBreen said. "The pitch was hard and the wind was blowing a gale. Good football was hard to come by. Tactically, I thought Damian Zane got it right again and everyone did their job”.

Magic coach Ruben Zadkovich was happy with the effort and remains confident of progressing.
