WITTON Albion, seeking to improve their position in the Premier Division table, host guests this weekend yet to be beaten on their travels this season.
Boss Brian Pritchard will be forced to make at least one change to the team that started last Saturday’s FA Cup exit at Ashton United after releasing midfielder Nicky Platt.
New recruit Jonathan Breeze is in line for a debut in his place.
Steven Hughes impressed in a cameo as a substitute in a 2-1 defeat at Hurst Cross, so should be involved again along with another addition to Albion’s attack this week – former Northwich Victoria striker Chris Luby.
Witton have lost three of four matches in front of their own fans to date with only the bottom two teams – Droylsden and Stafford Rangers – picking up fewer points on their own pitch so far.
Visitors Blyth Spartans’ defensive record on the road is bettered only by Whitby Town, with two goals conceded from four trips.
Three of those games have ended in parity, though.
Skipper Joe Kendrick sat out Tuesday’s home win against Ashton through injury – the Robins’ first league defeat of the season - so Ian Watson or recent recruit Marc Lancaster – stand by to play at left back.
Winger Dean Holmes (hamstring) is an injury doubt too.
Blyth lost all three head-to-heads with Witton last term, including a 4-1 thrashing in the FA Trophy.
In five previous visits to Wincham Park to play a Northern Premier League match, they have yet to win.
