Our Last Meeting
The last time the two sides met came in September when Hyde came out the winners in a dominant display over the Dabbers. A frustrating evening for Nantwich saw them struggle to even get a foothold in the game, with a 2-0 victory for the Tigers being the result, goals coming from Huddersfield Town loanee Oran Thompson and also Jack Dyche.
Last Time Out
Nantwich’s last game saw them take on local side Winsford Saxons in the Crewe FA Challenge Cup. The Dabbers played a mix of first team, reserve and youth team players. A confident 6-0 victory with goals coming from Callum Saunders (3), full debutant Aaron Lomas, Callum Parker and an own goal made sure that Nantwich progressed into the future rounds of the cup.
The Dabbers’ last league game was the long trip away to Scarborough Athletic. A hard fought game saw Nantwich take a well earned 1-1 draw in windy conditions. A free-kick from Scarborough’s Ryan Watson gave them the lead in the first half, before Joe Mwasile produced an impressive scissor kick which gave Nantwich the equaliser mid-way through the second period.
