Their opponents this weekend Winterton currently sit in eighth place. Winterton overcame Frickley in the League cup during the week. Last time in the league, they drew 1-1 with Barton, Paul Grimes scoring in the dying moments to help his side avoid two successive defeats. Scott Hellewell’s side finished third last season and boasted the league’s top goal scorer in Josh Walker. This season, Daniel Walker is their top goal scorer, with eight goals.

Chris Bolder summed up his thoughts ahead of the game, “It’s a really important game, if you look at the positions of where we both are in the league and the fact we’re away from home it’s going to be tough. Winterton, we know are a good side. We’ll have a few players back; we’ll have a few players back in the starting eleven. We’ve unfortunately lost Josh through injury but we should welcome a few players back into the fold this Saturday”.
