Tadcaster Albion take on Wisbech Town on Saturday looking to record their fourth straight win and stay in the play-off places.
Last week’s 3-0 victory at Stocksbridge Park Steels saw the Brewers keep hold of the final play-off place with rivals Sheffield FC dropping points losing coincidentally at visitors Wisbech.
After defeats to two teams above them in Brighouse and Sheffield, Simon Collins’ side have resurrected their promotion hopes by beating Loughborough, Marske and Stocksbridge in succession. However, if the Brewers do continue to pick up points, they’ll have to keep an eye on their PPG [point per game] record as two of the successful play-off winners at Step 4 won’t be promoted and Taddy currently sit just outside of that league.
Wisbech currently sit 14th in the division and top of the mini-league at the bottom if you like. With just six points separating Gresley in 20th to Town, all of those seven sides are still threatened by the dreaded drop. Last week’s 3-1 victory over Sheffield FC was their first since January 12th so confidence will no doubt be up travelling to Yorkshire.
As for Taddy, Joe Lumsden and Aiden Savory are both scoring goals which bodes well for Albion coming into three straight home fixtures before a tantalising final month of the season.
When the two sides met in Norfolk back in October, Taddy ran out comfortable 4-1 winners thanks to goals from Billy Whitehouse and Casey Stewart followed by a second half Aiden Savory double.
Every game feels like a must win for Taddy now with just nine fixtures remaining whereas victory for the Fenmen would see them pull further clear from the relegation zone.
Team News: Jack Walters (knee) and Josh Barrett (shoulder) remain side-lined. Taddy likely to name same team for third successive fixture.
