Lancaster City will host Warrington Town this Tuesday (October 18) looking for their third win on the bounce.

The Dollies’ last game was a 2-1 victory over Warrington Rylands at the Giant Axe last Tuesday evening which saw them rise out of the relegation zone to 17th in the Northern Premier League.

It was a first victory at home in the league for the Dolly Blues and it was well deserved, with goals coming from two relatively new faces in the defensive department at the Axe, Kyle Brownhill and Pat Allington, who both netted their first for the club.

City have also recently qualified for the FA Trophy First Round proper, beating Morpeth Town 3-2 at Craik Park on October 8.

Manager Mark Fell and his side will undoubtedly be wanting to stretch their winning run to three matches for the first time since March.

Fell said last Tuesday that “Warrington (Town) won’t want to come here” after the Yellows’ 2-0 defeat to Gainsborough Trinity on the same day. However, unlike Lancaster, they had a game at the weekend, beating Liversedge 4-0 on Saturday, which lifted them up to 11th in the league.

Town’s manager, Mark Beesley, had a short stint as a player at Lancaster City – the former striker scoring four goals in five games during a loan spell in the 2006/07 season.

Beesley won both games against his old club last year, with a 1-0 win at the Axe and a 5-1 victory in Warrington.

Lancaster City v Warrington Town gets underway from 7.45pm on Tuesday at the Giant Axe.
