NORTHWICH Victoria hope a two-month wait to play a home game finally ends when Stamford visit Wincham Park on Sunday.
The Daniels will be the first side they have entertained in a Northern Premier League fixture since a draw with Belper on December 11 – former boss Adam Lakeland’s final game at the helm.
His successor, Paul Moore, is still seeking a first victory in Division One South following three defeats and a draw so far.
“That’s disappointing,” he admitted.
“But I feel that we’ve been close; we’re harder to beat, and have only lost narrowly.”
He has brought in striker Dimase Kiwanda in a bid to bolster an attack he feels has lacked a cutting edge.
Alex Johnson has been released to make room in a squad that remains limited to 16 players by a registrations embargo.
“I’ve been looking at bringing in a forward because scoring goals has been our main problem,” said Moore.
Vics welcome back Reece Lyndon, named by the manager as captain following a switch from Radcliffe Borough, after he recovered from a hamstring injury.
However long-term absentee Godwin Abadaki (shoulder) is still out, while John Pritchard (calf) and Matty Clarke (ankle) are both rated as doubtful.
Moore ran the rule over his side, which included teenage midfielder Matty Shaw – a member of the club’s under 18s side – in a friendly against Radcliffe on Tuesday night.
Dave Short scored Vics’ goal in a 3-1 reverse.
Kick off on Sunday is 3pm.
