Lancaster City will aim to extend their winning run when they travel to Nantwich Town.

Their chance to notch four consecutive wins was delayed after their game against Liversedge on Tuesday (March 7) evening was postponed.

The Dollies have been victorious in their last three matches, all at home, against Whitby Town, Marske United and Morpeth Town.

Mark Fell set his side the aim of getting into the top 10 of the NPL Premier League Premier Division and, should they get a draw or better on Saturday and results go their way, they will do just that.

Despite having won their last five at home, Lancaster haven’t won on the road since November. That being said, Nantwich have only recorded three home wins over the course of the season.

They sit 19th in the NPL Premier League Premier Division, the highest of the four relegation places. The relegation battle has become less open in recent weeks and the Dabbers are five points from safety.

In a complete contrast to their opponents on Saturday, their last three games have all been defeats, one of them at home against the team just below them, Marske United, and another away to the team one place above them in Morpeth Town.

However, both of those results were under the previous management of Ritchie Sutton and Gary Taylor Fletcher.

Paul Carden is the new man in charge of Nantwich – his first and only game in charge so far was a 1-0 home defeat to Hyde United.

Nantwich Town and Lancaster City drew 1-1 on the opening day of the 2022-23 season at the Giant Axe.

The Dollies’ game at Nantwich Town kicks off at The Swansway Stadium at 3pm on Saturday (March 11).

Lancaster City’s next home game is against high-flying Hyde United on March 25, which is Non League Day. One of the many exciting things they are doing for this game is reducing ticket prices.

Ticket prices are reduced to £5 for adults, with concessions, students and young adult prices at £3 and under 14s going free with a paying adult.
