Away trip this Saturday!
After a hugely disappointing result midweek against Farsley Celtic in the FA Trophy, National League North action commences again this weekend, with a trip to Cheshire based Altrincham FC.
The Robins have found life tough so far this season after relegation from The National League, and currently find themselves rooted to the bottom of the table. However, they do have valuable games in hand on many of the teams around them, and will be looking to put a run together to try and avoid a second successive demotion.
Despite the FA Trophy performance, we remain top of the National League North form table, with 16 points gained from the last 18 available, and will be looking to extend this unbeaten league run further ahead of a fixture-less weekend on Saturday December 10th.
Previewing Saturdays game, Andy Morrell said "We can't be fooled by Altrincham's league position. We know this will be a really tough encounter as they look to get some points on the board. We have to be fully focused, and have the right mentality to go and bounce back immediately after Tuesday night."
