Luke Duffy hoping for FA Trophy run for fans

Luke Duffy is hoping his team can have a good run in the FA Trophy for the fans as the Yellows prepare for Lancaster City test.

It will be the second time in seven days that Warrington face the Dolly Blues, as the two sides met in the Pitching In Northern Premier League Premier Division last Saturday, with Mark Fell’s side claiming the three points with a 2-1 triumph at the Giant Axe.

All attention now turns to the FA Trophy this weekend for Paul Carden’s side as Lancaster City travel to Cantilever Park on Saturday afternoon in the Third Qualifying Round.

“All our focus is on Saturday. We know what we’re up against and we need to be at our best,” said Duffy.

“It’s important we have a good run for the club and I’m sure the fans wouldn’t mind a trip to Wembley.”

Duffy scored his first goal for the club since joining in the summer against Radcliffe, which proved to be a pivotal one to help the side claim the three points.

“I’m happy to get off the mark,” said Duffy.

“The win was more important. It’s first of many, hopefully.

“It’s been a great start from the lads, but we have to be better and not take any game lightly because there’s no easy game in this league.”

The mid-week fixture at home to Buxton was abandoned due to a serious injury to Warrington’s Scott Brown, in which Duffy added: “Browney is massive miss for the team on and off the pitch. The whole team wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him back soon.

“He’s a top man with a great attitude and I’m sure he will be.”
