Warrington Town Vs Nantwich Town match preview
The Dabbers make the short trip to Cantilever Park to face a Warrington Town side who currently occupy top sport in the Northern Premier League Premier Division, Nantwich on the other hand will be looking to five unbeaten in a row.
SEASON SO FAR:
The Yellows are current top of the league after a pulsating start to the season, winning five of their opening six fixtures including a 3-0 thrashing against Gainsborough Trinity thanks to goals from Josh Amis and a brace from Bohan Dixon. Their only loss came against Mickleover as they lost 3-2. Nantwich have also endured a positive start to their campaign. They remain unbeaten after a late Connor Heath header gave them a share of the points at Scarborough Athletic on Saturday.
LAST TIME WE MET
The sides last met at Cantilever Park on the 30th November 2019 with the hosts coming out as comfortable winners. On a freezing cold Saturday afternoon the game got off to a pulsating start as the hosts were 2-0 up inside just one nine thanks to goals from Ben Garrity and experienced defender Mark Roberts. One minute later Sean Cooke got a goal back for The Dabbers, but then Bohan Dixon’s second half goal sealed the victory for the hosts on what was a disappointing afternoon for Dave Cooke’s men. In fact Warrington have won the last three games against the Dabbers, they won 3-1 at the Weaver Stadium on the 3rd September 2019, and also in the play off semi final where they ran out 4-1 winners at Cantilever park. But the less said about that the better.
Warrington’s last game was on Saturday as they hosted Radcliffe and beat them 2-1 thanks to first half goals from Bohan Dixon and Luke Duffy. Here’s how they lined up for that fixture:
1 Charlie Albinson
2 Mitch Duggan
3 Matthew Taylor
4 Charlie Munro
5 Mark Roberts
6 Matty Regan
7 Jack Mackreth
8 Michael Rose
9 Josh Amis (Joel Amado 85′)
10 Bohan Dixon (Callum Grogan 78′)
11 Luke Duffy (Jordan Buckley 64′
ONE TO WATCH – Mark Roberts
Warrington centre half Mark Roberts is by fair their most experienced player in the league, not only in the Warrington Town side, with well over 150 football league appearances for Stevenage, Fleetwood, Cambridge United and Forest Green he brings a lot of knowledge and maturity to the Yellows back line. The two time league two playoff winner will provide a stern test for The Dabbers forwards.
Both sides will come into the game full of confidence as they have both made excellent start to their respective seasons and with a big crowd expected, it should be an excellent game as it always is between the two Cheshire sides.
