Yellows return to action against Mickleover on Saturday


WARRINGTON Town had a weekend on the sidelines after their game at Ashton United was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch on Saturday.

A late header from Tony Gray earned them a 2-1 win over Stafford Rangers in their last outing to make it back-to-back wins for Paul Carden’s men. 

Stafford are currently bottom of the English Northern Premier Division but took the lead against the Yellows through Paul Bignot but goals from Gray and Ben Garrity overturned the deficit and Town walked away with all three points.

Warrington are now sitting pretty in fourth on 28 points with four wins from their last five games. They’ve played 15 games which leaves them with games in hand over the teams around them. The Yellows are five points inside the play-offs and if they were to win their games in hand, they could narrow the gap to South Shields at the top to three points.

Carden’s team have their away form to thank for such an incredible season so far. They’ve contested seven games on the road so far and they remain unbeaten in the league with four wins and three draws. Only South Shields (17 points), Lancaster and Stalybridge (16 points) have accumulated more points in away games than the Yellows this season.

Warrington Town most recently played in the Integro Sports Cup, with eight teenagers featuring for the Yellows away to Kidsgrove Athletic last Monday night.

Jewad Jerbin and Iwan Murray both scored for Warrington as they raced into a 2-0 lead, but the hosts fought back to level things up at 2-2 and eventually ran out 4-2 winners in a penalty shootout.

Now attention reverts back to the Non-League Premier where Warrington will hope to continue their rich vein of form when they travel to face Mickleover on Saturday. Their hosts have lost four consecutive matches in the league, five in all competitions and are pointless from their last three games at home.

The Yellows have won on both of their last trips to this venue. In March they were 4-1 winners which bettered their 3-1 win from the previous season. 

Warrington have lost just twice on the road in 2019 in all competitions and have won 13 of the 21 games in that time with six draws. They have failed to score in just three of their 21 games this year and are currently on a two-game winning run away from home. 

Carden will be hoping his side can kick on as they chase promotion to the National League North for their first time in their history. The club are aiming to rise up the English football pyramid and they look good for promotion this year. William Hill currently have South Shields as the heavy favourites to win the league at 4/11 (1.26) but Wincomparator, who have the welcome bonus of William Hill in their latest sign-up offers (November 2019 update), can help you attain a 14/1 (15.00) shot on your club Warrington Town to win the Northern Premier League outright.
