Preview: Stalybridge Celtic vs Warrington Town

Warrington Town hit the road for the first time this season as Mark Beesley’s side travel to Stalybridge Celtic on Tuesday night. 

Buoyed by a dramatic 2-0 victory at home to Morpeth Town on the opening day, the Yellows will be keen to kick on and record back-to-back wins to start their 2022/23 Northern Premier League campaign. 

They will likely come up against a Stalybridge side with a point to prove, with Chris Willcock’s side beaten 2-0 by South Shields on Saturday. 

Previous meetings

Last season saw the Yellows record 3-0 victories, home and away, against the Celts. 

In October, goals from Jordan Buckley, Sean Williams and Ben Hough rounded off a 3-0 win at Cantilever Park, before a double from Matty Grivosti and another from Luke Duffy sealed a second triumph of the season at Bower Fold in March. 

Town haven’t conceded in any of their last three meetings with Tuesday’s hosts, and have lost just once in their last six encounters.
