Preview: Witton Albion (A)

Tomorrow, the black and whites make our second visit to Wincham Park of the season, as we travel to face Witton Albion. Following our exciting run of seven points from three home matches, Bradley Cooke's men will be looking to continue that form onto our travels. The Albion are high flying with twelve points from six games so far this season, courtesy in part to the contributions of front-man Scott Bakkor, who leads the club scoring charts courtesy of his goals against Scarborough and Radcliffe. Bakkor re-joined the red & whites in pre-season after making his name for Colwyn Bay, Warrington Town & Curzon Ashton. Looking ahead to the match, Colls manager Brad Cooke said: "I am delighted with the last seven days, but now that has been and gone and we move to focussing on Witton. When I first came into the role last season, after our first few games we went on a run of five losses starting at Witton. We are looking forward to showing how much we've improved since then, and we hope to avenge that loss!" Over the last week, four of Brad's new signings have scored their first goals for the club, with Jordan Darr, Elliot Rokka and Jack Banister all getting off the mark against Bamber Bridge on Tuesday night, whilst Marcus Cusani scored his first since returning against Stalybridge. "We have a young talented group who we believe will only get better as the season progresses. It's great for the new boys to get onto the teamsheet, naturally this will take the pressure off their shoulders, which will hopefully mean a lot more goals, and I have no doubt that this will be the case! When we click, we are very exciting in the final third." Going into the game, Rick Smith is 50/50 after missing Tuesday with an ankle injury. Lewis Doyle is still unavailable for selection, and the rest of the squad have been assessed following Thursday's training session, and Brad Cooke is confident of a "good selection headache" on Saturday morning.
