On Tuesday evening (26th March), we make the journey down the M6 to Market Drayton's Greenfields Sports Grounds after our original fixture fell victim to Storm Gareth last weekend. The Gingerbread Men are the first team we have ever faced from the county of Shropshire so the trip will be a new experience for many.
Drayton are in a funny run of form, having lost twice to relegation threatened Kendal Town but beating promotion chasing Radcliffe before losing to fellow high fliers Runcorn Linnets and Leek Town. Manager Martyn Davies being happy with the performance from his team despite losing 4-0 to Leek, The Blues taking their chances when presented whereas Drayton failed.
Colls know only too well then threat that lies in front of them, having fallen behind to a scrambled goal at the Skuna in October only for Jordan Cover to reply almost instantly. After missing a plethora of chances, Colls were stunned when William Wells hit a shot into the top bin, a goal worthy of winning any game.
Since we last met, Drayton have brought in James Jennings, Ethan Stanton and Lewis Macari on loan from Stoke City. Other men to watch include Desean Martin who has international experience with Monserrat, Charlie Knowles and Glynn Coney.
If selected, this will be Ben Hardcastle's 250th appearance for the Colls #VivaBenaldo
