Match Preview: Witton Albion vs City

In what was an eventful week for City, their focus again turns back to the league campaign as they travel to Witton Albion for a 7:45pm kick off on Tuesday, 1st October.


Recent Form

On the back of a defeat on the road on Saturday, City look to regain some form as they travel to Witton Albion. The side fought valiantly late on in the game to try and mount a comeback, so will be looking to cause a team in trouble some serious problems.


City’s Last 3 Games:

28/09 – Nantwich Town 3 – 2 Lancaster City

24/09 – Squires Gate 1 – 6 Lancaster City

21/09 – Lancaster City 0 – 5 Spennymoor Town


Our opposition enter the match on the back of three defeats, with one coming in the league and two in the FA Cup qualifying rounds. A team who have been in poor form have suffered some clear set backs this season, but they are still very capable of being a tough team to come up against.


Witton Albion’s Last 3 Games:

21/09 – Belper Town 0 – 0 Witton Albion

24/09 – Witton Albion 0 – 1 Belper Town

28/09 – Witton Albion 0 – 1 Stalybridge Celtic


Ones to Watch

There’s only one man we could talk about for City in terms of one to watch, and that’s Paul Dawson. The midfielder had a performance of dreams at Squires Gate on Tuesday night. Coming away with three goals to his name and that was just from the first half, would put him down as arguably the first name on the team sheet for the Nantwich game.


The man to watch for Witton Albion is Liam Goulding. The defender has been a central point of the home side’s defence this season. He has even been amongst the goals, proving to be a huge threat in both boxes. He was the man to score their last goal in any competition, in the 1-0 against Gainsborough Trinity.


The Dolly Blues are hoping to bounce back from Saturday and now gain points in the league to propel them up the league table. Another away game will provide a tough task for City, but the side is more than capable of coming away with the victory against a Witton Albion side that have not been in the best of form.
