1874 NORTHWICH, buoyed by victory at Cammell Laird on Tuesday in the Cheshire FA Senior Cup, return to league duty with one objective – to win.
Ian Street’s men have won five of their past six matches in Division One, collecting maximum points from their previous four games at Barton Stadium while racking up 15 goals.
Daley Woods, ineligible in midweek, should return while Lee Jones is available again too after missing the same game through work commitments.
Rick Bailey (groin) hopes to be fit to feature, but defender Connor Tagoe is a doubt after he was forced off inside the opening quarter hour of his debut.
Newcomer Michael McGinlay staked a claim to start after scoring on his first competitive appearance for the club.
1874 have won both of their previous meetings this season with their Manchester-based guests, including a 4-0 success last time out.
Villa are without a victory in the league away from Flixton, nor have they kept a clean sheet on their travels to date this season.
Their previous win, against Hanley, in Division One dates back to September, 11 games ago.
