Tomorrow sees The Pitmen returning home as we host Warrington Town at Keys Park knowing that we can ill afford anymore slip-ups if we are to make a break into the top five come the end of the season.
Our visitors tomorrow currently occupy one of those play-off places – having moved into second place in the league table in recent weeks.
This will actually be the first meeting between the two sides this season, having seen our trip to Warrington curtailed last month due to bad weather. The last time the two sides met at Keys Park came all the way back in December 2016 – when we triumphed by a solitary goal.
Manager Rob Smith was expecting another tough game:
“Tomorrow we welcome Paul Carden and his Warrington Town team to Keys Park. Our visitors have enjoyed a really good season so far, seeing them currently sitting in the top five of the league and also making good progression in the FA Trophy – defeating National League opposition along the way. This shows how we must again be ready on the day for the difficult challenge that lies ahead.
“It is set to be a very important game so please again give nothing but support to the players, they have been a credit to the club over recent months.”
Smith is set to be without defender Callam Mendez-Jones who hobbled off just before halftime in last weekend’s game against Stalybridge Celtic.
The game kicks off at 3pm and we look forward to welcoming you to Keys Park with Strikers Bar open to both sets of supporters before and after the game.
One extra piece of information is that today saw the Pitmen being handed a home tie in the semi-final of the Birmingham Senior Cup with Nuneaton Town or Walsall set to visit us on a date to be confirmed.
