Preview: Warrington Town vs Buxton

Warrington Town are back in action on Tuesday night, with Buxton the latest visitors to the UNIS Compliance Stadium. 

Mark Beesley’s Yellows will hope to bounce back from the disappointment of Saturday’s 2-0 loss at home to Blyth Spartans, and pick up their first points of the National League North season on home soil.

Matty McDonald (knee) and Andy White (foot) will be assessed after they became the latest players to suffer injury setbacks ahead of the club’s first midweek fixture of the season.

Tuesday’s game comes too soon for forward Jordan Buckley, who could come back into contention next weekend away at Chorley.

Captain Josh Amis (knee) and midfielder Jay Harris (groin) also remain sidelined.

Manager Mark Beesley has called on his experienced players to step forward as the Warrington Town squad continues to battle against injuries and suspension.

They could be without as many as five first team regulars on Tuesday night, but Beesley admits his players need to roll with the punches and focus on what’s within their control.

“We’ve got good characters and they have to stand up,” Beesley told the Warrington Guardian.

“The experienced players have to come to the fore here and help the young lads out.

“Football kicks you in the teeth and we’ve got another tough game on Tuesday against a Buxton side who, in my opinion, will be right up there this season.

“The games are tough and there’s no point feeling sorry for ourselves. We have to get on with it.”

Warrington Town midfielder Sean Williams believes the squad need to re-discover the habit of winning after a mixed start to the new season.

Saturday’s defeat to Blyth leaves the Yellows in mid-table, even at such an early stage of the season, but Williams says the belief is there for all to see within their currently-depleted squad – as demonstrated by their opening-day thrashing of Southport.

“It was a pretty perfect game [at Southport],” he said.

“It was great to get a good start, but as the gaffer said, it’s only a start and it’s up to us to keep the rhythm going now, especially after Saturday’s defeat.

“We need to keep rolling the dice and see where we land. I think that you need more than one win for it to become a habit.

“Hopefully it can become a habit. We’ve seen that last season when we went 21 games unbeaten. The lads always believe, so hopefully we can go again on Tuesday and get some more points on the board.”
