PREVIEW: Tadcaster Albion (H)

The Rams go into this one still top of the table following recent victories at home to previous table-toppers Workington and away at Droylsden last week, when the defence stood firm in both games refusing to concede a goal.

At the other end, the Rams appear to have an attack possessing a number of different goalscorers as they have so far notched 65 in their 25 league matches.

Tadcaster arrive at the HWRS in sixth spot with an impressive away record of six wins and two draws from their eleven games on the road.

This will prove a severe test for the home side, but Ramsbottom’s confidence will be high on the fact that their home matches have seen ten wins, one draw and a solitary league defeat in front of their own supporters.

The reverse fixture in December saw the east Lancashire side return home with a point during the impressive twelve game unbeaten league run, and in order to maintain that top-of-the-table position, three points are vital with Workington breathing down their necks.

A crowd of over 600 enjoyed the last home game, and hopes are high that once again the locals will get behind their team and push them on in what is becoming a fascinating race for promotion.

A number of sides are in the mix, and whilst it’s good to see the Rams currently top of the pile, there are many games still to be played between now and the end of April, with the trick being to stay in the number one spot until then

A mammoth task, but one which, with the backing of the supporters, this talented squad of players are aiming to achieve.
