Why should I watch..?

After ending a sequence of five successive defeats in midweek, Witton Albion will be keen to register back-to-back league wins.

Carl Macauley’s men have returned to the table’s top 10 as a reward for beating Workington, and start tomorrow’s meeting with Coalville only three points adrift of the play-offs places.

They will be motivated as well to avenge a 2-1 defeat in the return game against the Ravens last month.

Coalville usually bring with them a guarantee of goals; their 17 Premier Division matches this term have yielded 52 in total.

Tommy Brookbanks’ side have lost their past four games though – their worst run of results so far this season.

What they’ve said

“We know about Coalville because we’ve played them recently.

“Daniel Creaney caused us problems at their place, while Nathan Watson showed how clever and capable he is.

“I think they’ll play similarly here as they did then, and have a commitment to attack.

“That should make for a decent game.”

Carl Macauley, Witton Albion manager

Numbers game

Of Witton Albion’s seven wins in the Northern Premier League’s top-flight this season, four have been by a 1-0 score-line

Witton team news

Wide man Micah Evans (calf) remains a doubt after sitting out the past two matches.

Attacker Alex Newby has extended a loan stay with Clitheroe for a second month, while Ben Greenop has been improving his match fitness with Ashville in the West Cheshire League.

Manager Carl Macauley reports that Freddie Champion, who has yet to feature since signing, is unavailable due to university commitments.

Man to keep an eye on

Matty Devine

In an encouraging collective performance during a win against Workington in midweek, the full-back – along with Will Jones – was Witton’s outstanding individual.

He brings security to the defence, but his stamina and speed going forward heightened Albion’s attacking threat significantly.
