Gingerbreads Host Play-Off Rivals In Crucial Clash

3 months ago By Callum Boyle

Grantham will be looking to put behind the disappointment of the weekend defeat to Nantwich on Tuesday when they host Warrington Town.

Saturday's 3-1 defeat away to Nantwich saw the Gingerbreads slip to their first defeat in eight games, and also their first loss since December.

With results also going against the Gingerbreads this weekend, Town dropped to 6th in the league, however they do have games in hand on sides around them.

High flying Warrington are looking to close the gap on league leaders Altrincham as well as continue to cement their play-off place on Tuesday night.

They continued their good form this season with a 2-0 away win at Hednesford Town on Saturday, and continued their good form where they have only lost one of their past five games.

This is the first time that the Gingerbreads have met Warrington competitively this season.

Grantham manager Adam Stevens has told his side to put Saturday behind them and look ahead to Tuesday: "Saturday wasn't good enough and the lads knew that. Sometimes you have performances like that but we have forgotten about it and can only look ahead. Tuesday presents us with another tough test and a chance to put things right and maintain a promotion push which we have been involved in all season."

Tom Batchelor serves the final game of his suspension whilst Luke Shaw is still injured. There are no other injuries to report.

With temperatures due to drop over the next few days, we'll keep you updated on any planned pitch inspection.
