The game was due to come during a difficult run of form for the hosts, who have since picked up results wise, with the addition of centre forward Dan Cockerline, who has been in fine scoring form in recent weeks. Back then, Trinity had just begun the run of form, which has continued - and hopefully will continue - beyond Tuesday night. The Dabbers overcame Barwell in the FA Trophy on Saturday, despite losing Prince Haywood just before the midway point in the first half and then going a goal down. Currently sitting two places and two points below the Holy Blues, Dave Cooke's side are a regular in and around the play-off spots and nothing should be taken for granted as we chase an impressive nine unbeaten.

Nantwich's home form has improved of late, with a win two draws and a defeat in the last four games (in all competitions). The draws coming against Warrington Town and South Shields. The loss, last time out in the league was a 3-2 home reverse where they led 2-0 at half time, only to go down to a second half Liam Noble hat-trick at the Optimum Pay Stadium.

In squad news, George Hornshaw is available for selection having served his three match ban for his injury time dismissal at home to Ashton United. Meanwhile, Liam Waldock has returned to his parent club Sheffield Wednesday after his successful loan spell. As a club, we would like to place on record our thanks to him for his efforts whilst in Gainsborough Trinity blue.

Head Coach, Tom Shaw says his side are ready for another challenge on the road as he declares, "The group are feeling positive and ready for another test on the road. We have grown in recent weeks to look like a side that is hard to beat, tough to compete with and it has been really pleasing to see consistent winning behaviours from the players. We performed to a really high level at the weekend in and out of possession and the Nantwich fixture will be another opportunity to fight to be at that level of performance."

He continued, "If we continue to show the humility and hunger we have recently and keep our foot on the gas, I am confident we can come away with another positive result. They have some players that will test our resolve. We will have to be good to get what we want, but we know what it takes to pick up points away in this division now and we will make sure we take huge pride in all the things in our control".

As always, it's really appreciated everybody that can make the trip to cheer on the side - and those that join us, by tuning in to the action on our Mixlr Radio, where you can stay abreast of the action. Why not leave Rob a comment in the messages as he hopefully brings news of a Trinity victory?
