Lee Andrews and Steven Rudd go into Saturday’s Evo-Stik Premier Division clash versus Nantwich Town with a selection headache.
They have a full squad available for the first time in months and 2/3 players will not even make the team sheet. It is a far cry from the situation twelve months ago when Reds were struggling to fill the bench with Andrews, himself, making up the numbers on several occasions.
Good numbers have attended both training sessions this week and the players have worked hard in preparation for a hectic schedule over the next few weeks.
It goes without saying how important the game is to both clubs, Nantwich require the points to cement a play-off place at the very least whilst Reds’ situation is bordering on impossible.
The Dabbers have enjoyed an excellent campaign and are currently 4th in the table. They have obtained 27 points on the road, just two less than Reds have obtained in total.
Earlier in the season, the two sides played out a goalless draw in Cheshire and a similar outcome at Borough Park would suit the Greens more than the Reds but any point gained is crucial at this stage of the season.
In eleven previous league meetings (two in the North West Counties League and nine in the NPL), Reds have recorded six victories, the Dabbers have won twice with the other three drawn.
