Wythenshawe Town take on Runcorn Town at Ericstan Park on the back of a good run of form.
This Saturday, Town host Runcorn Town in our next game of the season. With only a quarter of the season remaining, it is vital to gain every point possible in order for us to finish the season strong. Town are currently unbeaten in 6 games and have won 5 of them. However even though this sounds to be an impressive statistic, last weeks draw against Prestwich Heys ended with Town being bitterly disappointed to drop two points in a game that they felt was an opportunity to take all three.
In a recent catch up with Town Captain Jerome Wright, he explains that the squad are eager for the home game and are looking forward to stepping out into the field to prove a point.
“The lads are excited for the game and it can’t come soon enough, after dropping 2 points last week after a good run against some good sides, it was a bit of a downer, so we’re looking forward to hopefully getting back to winning ways.”
The left back also expresses just how important this and every other game is throughout the full duration of the season, “A win in this game is just as important as any other 3 points. Whether it’s the beginning or the end of the season or against top or bottom of the league, we go out to win every single game we play!”
In the reverse fixture, Town left the Viridor Community Stadium with a single point after a very underwhelming game of football. This time round, Town will definitely be looking to rewrite the script by putting the reverse fixture’s result behind them and looking at how they can get the better of the opponents in this home encounter.
It has been great to have the skipper back after his injury. Since returning, Wright has produced some top performances and has brought a lot more confidence to the staff and fans who clearly value his high work rate and dedication to the team. The experienced full back is just as delighted to be back amongst the action.
“I feel a lot better now I’m back in the team. Not being in the squad was a tough 7 months, not knowing if I could run on it again was a bit difficult. I owe a lot to the lads and the staff for looking after me whilst getting me back in the team.”
The atmosphere at Ericstan Park has been electric the past few weeks, and the fans have shown their loyalty and passion for the club by attending every away fixture. We hope to see as many of our fantastic supporters as possible on Saturday 29th January at 3pm.
