After their first away victory in the league this season, Mickleover Sports head into Non League Day off the back of a big confidence boost as they welcome 6th placed Nantwich Town on Saturday. The Dabbers have only lost two of their league games so far this season, both coming away from home. However an impressive run of unbeaten matches have moved the Dabbers up to within touching distance of the playoffs, only being kept by on goal difference. Sports moved up a place in the table to 18th after defeating Witton Albion 2-1, sending Workington into the relegation zone who were in FA Cup Replay action on Wednesday night. John McGrath will want to use the next two home games to gain as many points as possible before a tricky long distance trip to Whitby Town the weekend after.
LAST TIME OUT
Nantwich Town continued their impressive start to the season with another three points as they defeated Hednesford Town at home on Tuesday night. Craig Lindfield scored for the Dabbers either side of a solo goal from Hednesford’s Daniel Sweeney to give Nantwich the three points at the Weaver Stadium.
