WITTON head to Stocksbridge seeking to extend a perfect record on the road against teams in the table’s bottom half.
Albion’s current sequence on their travels –successive wins at Rushall, Eastwood and Blyth Spartans – is their best of the season.
Brian Pritchard’s men have an extra incentive to bring home a first maximum points haul of the New Year too after back-to-back draws against Nantwich and Ilkeston.
The manager hopes Danny Andrews shakes off a dead leg to play, although Mathew Wood is out through injury. Josh Glover stands by.
Pritchard’s primary dilemma is whether to recall Shaun Tuck to the starting line-up, or to stick with a 4-5-1 formation used in the 2-2 tie with the Robins last weekend.
Tomorrow’s hosts have won only one of their past 15 Evo-Stik Northern Premier League matches in front of their own supporters, a 3-0 victory against Rushall Olympic back in October.
The last team to lose at Bracken Moor before that was Worksop Town in March.
Rock-bottom Eastwood Town are the only team to have conceded more goals than Stocksbridge on their own pitch this term.
Play-offs hopefuls Hednesford and Marine have both been held to draws in Sheffield by Darren Schofield’s team, who lost five of their first six home games in the current campaign.
Tommy Agus serves a ban this weekend, so Stocksbridge will be forced to make at least one change from the side that came from behind to beat Eastwood last Saturday.
