Warrington Town vs Witton Albion

Witton make the short trip to Cheshire rivals Warrington Town on Boxing Day in a BetVictor Northern Premier League fixture, looking to put together another winning run following two disappointing results in recent weeks. Warrington themselves are in the midst of a dip in form, having drawn two and lost one of their last three league games. Derby fixtures are more often than not eventful and competitive and hopefully this latest encounter will prove to be just as interesting. Town sit in the top four going into the game and will be hoping to close the gap on the teams above them whilst Albion have slipped to ninth with their last two results. The last defeat at home to Whitby Town although disappointing, hasn’t caused too much damage as regards points due to to the fact that four of the teams above them also lost on that day and with another “Derby” ahead of them to start the new year, Witton will be looking to climb back up the table and put themselves in the mix again. Kick off at Cantilever Park is 3pm.

Looking forward to this one and hope we can bounce back to form ! Team wise I would go with

Baldwin, Anson, Wardle, Short
Mckenna, Goulding, Owens, Foley
Jones, Sambor

If we can cut out the mistakes amd take our chances we could get a result I suspect the mgr will leave foley out and play Lingouba in the middle but for Me its too light weight and it will be a right battle today. UTA

Is there a chance the game could be off?? There’s alot if rain.in already saturated ground!

Not heard anything at this moment in time but will update any information should it be necessary.

A decent performance after the last couple of games, good to see Jay Foley back. Danny Mitchley looked sharper today & I thought Josh Wardle was back to his best . We had a couple of chances to win it towards the end, hopefully we can now go on another decent run and get into the play off places.

We fought valiantly for a point after Renshaw uncharacteristically fumbled a cross to allow Wincham born Roberts to poke home. The first half was pretty even with odd chances either end but the second half after we lost Goulding to an Injury, we looked bit weak in midfield as Monaghan replaced him and Warrinton dominated. Then Renshaw made up for his error to make a string of super saves to keep Warrington out. In between, Witton won a penalty following a great run by Baldwin ended with him being brought down and up stepped the reliable Foley to make it 1-1. Despite us being under the cosh for most of the second half, we still had a couple of chances to go ahead but Monaghan missed a great one on one chance again and Sambor was denied late on by a great save to to keep the scores level.
My MOM was Wardle who was brilliant followed closely by Renshaw however, the whole team put in great effort! The worry going forward is us losing Goulding shortly out of the midfield and our inability to score the chances we create. Was great to see Foley back and he will no doubt help immensely if he can stay fit. UTA
