With confidence high after a hard-fought midweek win, the belief will certainly be coursing through the veins of those in Gainsborough blue. The Yellows have won two of their three home games to date, 2-0 victories over FC United of Manchester (on the opening day) and against Atherton Collieries have been undoubted bright spots, though a blot on that record came in the form of a defeat by the same margin. Beaten by Matlock Town with two second half goals deciding the tie. Since then, three away games have yielded four points and FA Cup progress, meaning Warrington will be a tough test for the Holy Blues, but one that Tom Shaw is certain his young side will relish,
"Going into very tough back-to-back away fixtures against two teams who are expected to be in and around the top end of the division this season, we have done our homework and preparation and we are confident and ready to give it our all and collect some points against the odds. I felt we looked very organised and our physical and mental application was excellent on Tuesday night, we need to be the same if not better in the next two games. We have some good options on the front line with a mix of attributes, so we are hoping to go and test our opposition with our style and personnel."
Shaw went on to pay tribute to the travelling fans, "We owe the supporters that have been travelling to games a big couple of performances as we haven’t been anywhere near our best on the road. Hopefully we can bring some hard-earned points back with us this week."
Josh Amiss and Jordan Buckley lead the scoring charts for the Yellows so far this season, but their measly defence is what has earned the points so far, with ex Liverpool youth Dan Atherton in fine form, keeping five clean sheets to date.
