Match pointers
1874 NORTHWICH target another Division One double when Atherton Collieries arrive in Winsford.

They won by a single goal at Alder Street a fortnight ago.

Ian Street’s men have been the victors too in six successive league matches – a sequence matched only by title favourites Nelson – to close to within four points of a promotion position in the table.

The hosts will be forced to make at least one change to the team that started Wednesday’s win at Darwen, with Craig Farnworth due to serve a suspension.

Michael Aston stands by for a recall.

Lee Jones is available again after work commitments caused him to miss the midweek match, while Matthew Woolley has recovered from a slight hamstring injury.

The visitors haven’t played a league game since losing to Northwich, a defeat that leaves them seven points adrift of the home at kick off.

Colls have won five of their past half dozen matches away from home, though they have lost on each of their past three visits to Barton Stadium when facing Winsford.
