There will be a big clash at Cantilever Park this weekend, with play-off hopeful’s Barwell making the trip from Leicester, but how have they been performing over the past couple of weeks?
Warrington Town currently sit second in the league table, with six points separating themselves and sixth – the closest position that would not provide play-off football.
Therefore, it is with paramount importance that the Yellows continue to mount up the points to help them reach their priority target.
Both Shaw Lane and Farsley Celtic are hot on the heels of Paul Carden’s side in third and fourth, with just three points being the difference.
The Town may have four games in hand over the Villagers, which provides some breathing space, but the Ducks have two extra fixtures over Warrington.
As a result, it is vital that the Yellows do not make it easy for the South Yorkshire club and put as much pressure on them as they possibly can ahead of those matches.
Altrincham’s 4-1 win over Stourbridge on Tuesday night means that the gap at the top is now 10 points, albeit Carden and co have a game in hand.
From a Barwell perspective, a tremendous run of form has played made them play-off candidates, with just two points standing between the Canaries and a golden spot.
Although, Ashton United, who are fifth, have played four less matches than Jimmy Ginnelly’s side.
