PREVIEW: Winsford United (A)

Following the highly entertaining 3-3 draw in the original game at the HWRS, both sides meet in Cheshire to decide who will travel to Maltby Main on Saturday in the 1st Qualifying Round of this season’s FA Cup.

The Rams unbeaten start to the season was ended on Saturday with a lack-lustre performance at a windy Pontefract Collieries in a game of few chances and little quality football.

Hopefully the side were saving themselves for this game!

Financially, the FA Cup provides quite a boost for clubs at this level, but the performance put in at the HWRS by a team one Division below the Rams will ensure that no complacency is on offer as a return to the entertaining style produced by the team since the arrival of Chris Willcock last October will be needed if progress is to be made.
