In The Spotlight: Wyke Wanderers

Our First-Team will be hoping to bounce back from the disappointing 5-1 defeat against Salts FC when they host Wyke Wanderers at Barr Field this Saturday.

The match has a 2:30 pm kick-off, and the weather is forecast to be a moderate breeze and light cloud.

Team News.

Luke Dubery returns into the Manager's consideration following the completion of his suspension. There could also be a few changes in starting personnel as Dan Marshall looks for an instant response to the last result.

Wyke Wanderers Form.

The Wanderers come into this match sitting in 14th place in the league, but as we know from the recent 2-2 draw played at Whitechapel Road, they are a difficult team to play.

Away from their home ground, Wyke have struggled to gain points, losing five of the six games they have played with the only exception being a 1-1 draw against Kippax.

A win for Wyke could see them close down Featherstone Colliery while a defeat could see them drop down to the bottom of the league. It certainly is a match where the points are precious to both teams, but for very different reasons!

Charlie Yates scores from the spot during the 2-2 draw.

One To Watch.

Ashley Andrews leads Wyke's goalscoring charts with six goals so far. Louis Sterling is in second place with four goals, and then two players have three goals each.

Previous Meetings.

Both sides met for the first time just after Christmas on a very blustery day. Two goals from Charlie Yates were cancelled out by strikes from Andrews and Sterling as the teams had to settle for a point each.

The Man In The Middle.

Mr Dean Grant is the referee for this game. According to the FA stats page, he has sin-binned one player, booked four and dismissed one.
