Up Next: 1874 Northwich

On Saturday we welcome 1874 Northwich to Alder House. It will be the club's fourth visit to downtown Atherton since their formation in 2012, following competitive matches against Collieries are former tenants Oldham Boro. Despite it being their fourth visit, this will be only the second time they have faced Colls away from home. The last time the two sides met was in March 2014, when a Mike Brandon goal gave 1874 all three points. The reverse fixture came around less than a month later, where Kieran Halliwell headed Colls into a lead at the Barton Stadium before a deserved equaliser arrived.
Head-to-Head: Played: 2 Colls: 0 Draw: 1 Northwich: 1 Colls scored: 1 Northwich scored: 2
Form: Northwich come into the match on the back of three straight wins, conceding no goals in the process. The last match was a 3-0 home win against West Didsbury & Chorlton last Friday night in front of the BBC cameras.  Collieries have played four matches so far this season, winning three and losing one. Both sides are through to the next round of the FA Cup and will be looking to build momentum with a win on Saturday.
Advice for travelling supporters: Car parking around the ground is available, with most found behind Formby Hall which is next to the ground. With a large crowd expected, supporters are asked to arrive in plenty of time to secure a parking space.  If you arrive with plenty of time or fancy a drink after the match in a local pub The Rope & Anchor is found just two minutes walk from the ground. Manchester United v Newcastle United will be shown on the big screens in both the pub and the Collieries clubhouse.
