CARL Macauley says Witton Albion won’t be intimidated by facing one of the Northern Premier League’s best attacks this weekend.

They travel on Saturday to Grantham Town, who sit second in the standings and have scored more than 60 goals to date this season.

Only leaders Altrincham have netted more.

“We’ll go toe-to-toe with them,” said the Albion boss.

“We’re more than capable of doing that, something we’ve proved already this season when we’ve been to the likes of Stourbridge, Shaw Lane and Altrincham.

“We’ll definitely need to keep a close eye on their front two, and try to shackle them as best we can.

“That means being strong out of possession, something I felt we were [against Nantwich] last weekend.”

“We gave a good account of ourselves [against Grantham] last time, although we conceded a couple of goals that were avoidable and it cost us a chance of victory.”

He can also rely on a formidable front line, for Albion’s total of 53 goals is the fourth-highest in the Premier Division.

They added four to that tally when brushing aside the Dabbers last Saturday.

Attacking trio Rob Hopley, Will Jones and Steven Tames have accounted for 36 of those strikes, drawing praise from their manager.

He added: “They’ve all stepped up, and remained reliable even when really they’ve needed a rest.

“We’ll always pose a threat to the opposition, and create chances no matter who we’re up against.

“We’re right up there among the best attacking sides in the league, and that’s something to be really proud of – it has kept us in contention.”
