Match preview -Anstey Nomads vs Wythenshawe Town
Wythenshawe travel to Anstey Nomads on Saturday, with both sides seeking a quarter final spot in the FA vase.
This weekend, Wythenshawe travel to Leicester to face Anstey Nomads, in an anticipated clash in the FA vase, with both sides eyeing up the potential of an encounter at Wembley.
Wythenshawe conquered FA vase favourites Consett Town in the previous round, defeating the side from Durham 2-1. The victory has certainly instilled belief with the Wythenshawe ranks, having remained unbeaten since and finding the back of the net with ease.
Wythenshawe are 8 games unbeaten heading into Saturday’s cup fixture, with forward Matty Bryan spear heading the attack on a superb goal scoring run, having netted 21 times in the league this season.
Bryan will take some stopping on Saturday, and in a recent catch up with the Wythenshawe marksman, he gave us some insight into the success he’s had in front of goal this season: “As a player in my position you need to be scoring and creating chances, even more so with the current team we have, and competition for places. I still haven’t scored as many as I would have liked to by now, but now I’m on a good run and hoping it continues”
With a string of excellent results as of late, having defeated both Consett Town and Macclesfield away from home, and last Saturday’s victory at Ericstan park against Skelmersdale United, Bryan reinforced the positive spirit around the club at the moment: “Everyone is buzzing, there’s a real good feel around the place and that is partly down to the success on the pitch. Everyone is together, and I’d even go as far to say it’s the best changing room I have been apart of. There’s some great characters, and we have a good laugh but our heads our screwed on once matchday arrives”.
With the potential of a final at Wembley, and Saturday’s fixture looming, the forward also stressed the importance for the team to remain concentrated and not be overwhelmed by the occasion, whilst also illustrating what making the quarter finals would mean to the club: “We have been preparing the same as we have all season. We train hard and keep taking it game by game. Kinsey believes in the squad but keeps our feet on the ground. So hopefully we can reach the final 8, make it a day to remember for the club and have a cracking coach trip back to Wythenshawe”.
The support from the fans in recent weeks has been excellent, helping the team maintain the excellent run of form, and the supporters will be hoping the unbeaten run doesn’t end any time soon. We hope to see as many of our supporters present on Saturday 12th February at 3pm.
