The Dabbers are on the road again for Saturday’s match against Radcliffe, here we look at what to expect from both teams for this clash in Greater Manchester.
Can’t believe it’s not Borough
Radcliffe FC find themselves 19th after seven games with 5 points. Their only win in the PitchingIn Northern Premier came over bottom side Witton at the end of August. In recent games, a bruising 3-0 home defeat to local rivals FC United was followed up by a 2-0 win over Skelmersdale in the FA Cup and a 1-1 draw with Bamber Bridge in the week.
Three new additions have been added to Radcliffe’s squad in the last week. Midfielder Kingsley Williams and striker Andy Owens both rejoin the club after spending time there previously.
There’s also an exciting Portuguese winger who may well be making his debut tomorrow in Greater Manchester. No, not that one, it’s Bebeto Gomes, who has joined Radcliffe on loan from Stockport. But with our Argentine star Thommy set to play too, perhaps a non-league Ronaldo/Messi rivalry could provide the fireworks tomorrow.
Last Time Out
In what turned out to be our last match before lockdown, Nantwich and Radcliffe played out an entertaining 2-2 draw at the Neuven Stadium in March 2020.
The Dabbers fell behind from a Josh Langley own-goal, before a Sean Cooke penalty and a deflected Ricardo Fuller strike put Nantwich 2-1 up in the second half (pictured above), then sub Darren McKnight’s top corner finish meant the points were shared. Highlights of that game can be watched below:
Player to Watch
Bobby Grant is the Boro’s main creative force, much like Sean Cooke he has been a vital source of goals and assists from the no.10 position this season, scoring and assisting in that Witton win and adding goals in other games.
