After a frustrating evening on Tuesday at Ilkeston, the Pitmen return to action with another away trip this weekend when they travel to Nantwich Town.
We have only ever faced Nantwich in seven competitive matches, the first of which came at the start of the 2008/09 campaign.
The Pitmen are actually unbeaten on visits to the Weaver Stadium, having won 3-1 on their first visit in 2009, then gaining a creditable 2-2 draw with nine men in January 2012 before earning another point in October of that year with a 1-1 draw.
Manager Liam McDonald was hoping for a good game of football as he looks to his side for another positive performance.
“I’m looking forward to getting back into league action this weekend against Nantwich Town. I had them watched in their FA Cup replay in the week at Marine so we have a good idea of what we are going to come up against.
“I’m expecting them to be a similar test to that which we faced against Whitby Town. It will be a good game of football and no doubt an exciting one. If we can play like we did on Tuesday then I’m sure we can get a positive result.
“I’m also looking to strengthen the squad in certain areas. We have made a few expressions of interest in a couple of different players and we should be able to have some news on that next week.”
On the injury front Tom Thorley should be ok after picking up a couple of little knocks. Tristian Dunkley and Sean Geddes both completed full training sessions with squad on Thursday night and are in contention for Saturday.
There are a limited number of car parking spaces at the ground. You are advised to arrive early as these can go quickly, especially for the more popular games.
There is also a nearby long stay car park at the local swimming baths and that is the best place to park should there be no space at the ground. It costs £2.10 for 2-4 hours and £2.90 for up to 10 hours, so offers a cheap and well located place to leave your car, with the ground and the town centre in easy walking distance.
