Gingerbreads Aim To Maintain Promotion Push

3 months ago By Callum Boyle

Grantham will be bolstered with the return of Jack McGovern, who signed earlier this week, when they host Witton Albion on Saturday.

Grantham will be buoyed by the excellent 4-2 win over rivals on Stourbridge on Saturday, moving the Gingerbreads to within seven points of league leaders Altrincham, who currently have one game in hand on Town.

The Gingerbreads are also unbeaten in their last six league games, last losing to Buxton.

Away side Witton Albion also have promotion ambitions themselves, currently located in 9th place and just four points off a play-off place. Similarly to Grantham, Witton also won last weekend in emphatic fashion, securing a 4-1 win at home to Nantwitch.

Currently, Witton are in good form, losing just once in their last five games.

Grantham manager Adam Stevens says his side need to continue their good form to get the three points: "Both sides have ambitions of promotion so we know we will be in a tough game. If we continue the way we have been playing, we have every chance of coming away with the three points."

New signing Jack McGovern could make his first appearance after re-joining the club earlier in the week. Tom Batchelor and Luke Shaw still remain absent due to suspension and injury, whilst the rest of the squad are available for the weekend's game.

For those unable to make the match,there will as always be updates across our social media accounts.
