Warrington Town enter the busy holiday period of the fixture list in third place in the Northern Premier League.
The Yellows are four points off of top side South Shields heading into the 17th fixture of the season at the weekend. Warrington Town have been mighty impressive this season and will play four matches over a two-week period during the holidays.

Manager Paul Carden has Warrington Town unbeaten in six straight matches. That six-match run includes a 1-1 draw on 7 December away to South Shields. Warrington Town just missed out on promotion last term, but with consistency in the second half of this season, could achieve the feat. Of course, there is a lot of football left to play and a few postponed games will need to be made up.
November saw two Northern Premier matches postponed with Warrington Town forced to make up the two games in the second half of the season. Games versus Ashton United and Mickleover Sports were called off due to wet weather. Early November saw a large amount of rain sweep across Britain forcing a number of non-league fixtures to be canceled.

The Yellows saw back to back matches postponed and have two games in hand over second-place Lancaster City. South Shields have played the same number of fixtures (16) as Warrington Town. The Yellows could move above Lancaster City by winning both games in hand. However, they would need South Shields to drop points to take over first place. The two postponed fixtures have not been added to the team’s fixture list as yet.
A marathon season
Last season, Warrington Town collected 84 points. It was an incredible haul for the yellows that saw them finish third and just miss out on promotion losing in the playoff final to King’s Lynn Town after extra time. It was a harsh way to end such a brilliant campaign at Cantilever Park.
The Yellows may have lost the battle last season, but they could ultimately win the war and achieve promotion this term. The Northern Premier is a marathon season, yet it is one that Warrington Town have navigated before.
Warrington Town hold a psychological advantage over South Shields in the chase for automatic promotion. The Yellows eliminated South Shields from the playoffs last season to reach the final against King’s Lynn Town.
South Shields had finished ahead of Warrington Town on 87 points. However, it was the Yellows that won in the playoffs, 2-1. That psychological advantage could play a major factor in the second half of the season as the two clubs battle for the league title.
