Up next for Mickleover following their impressive victory against Atherton Collieries is a difficult home game against Warrington Town this Saturday.

Warrington Town currently find themselves up in 6th in the table and are unbeaten in their last six games. They have a record of nine wins, four draws and four losses so far this season.

Warrington’s most recent loss came back at the end of September against Basford United.

They won their last game 1-0 at home to Hyde United back on the 6th of November.

Despite their recent win lifting them out of the relegation zone, Sports are still struggling down in 18th and notably the teams around them in the table all have games in hand.

Sports’ manager John McGrath spoke about the game against Warrington following last weekend’s victory, he said: “I’ve always been confident in the boys; I’ve always known I’ve got a good group of lads and always known we can beat anybody on our day, but Warrington are a good side, Paul Carden has got them playing some nice football in the last few years. We’ll do our homework and our due diligence on them this week and work hard in training to get ready for Saturday.”

Warrington Town, known as The Yellows, have been managed by Paul Carden since 2016. In his playing career he played for the likes of Luton Town, Cambridge United and Burton Albion.

The Yellows play their home games at the 2,550 capacity Cantilever Park. They have finished 3rd in each of the last three seasons in the Northern Premier League Premier Division, including the 2019/20 season that was declared void with 10 games to play.

The last time the two sides played each other was back in October 2020, Sports won 3-2 at home and both sides also received red cards.

The match kicks off at 3pm at the Don Amott Arena this Saturday.
