Match Preview :- Vauxhall Motors - Saturday September 22nd, 2012 (15:00:00)

On Saturday, Vauxhall Motors visit the Fold in the FA Cup Second Qualifying round. Vauxhall are currently thirteenth in the table, on ten points, six places and four points behind Celtic. There will be a match centre for this game.

Vauxhall have had a decent start to the season, and have beaten Corby Town on the road already, and have scored in every game that they have played in this season. Last season, it was one win apiece, with Vauxhall winning the last meeting 1-0 at Rivacre Park and Celtic winning 4-2 back in August. Vauxhall's last win at Bower Fold was the season before, winning 4-1, gaining revenge for knocking them out of the Trophy with a 3-1 win in Ellesmere Port, and beating them 3-0 in the league.

Vauxhall's top scorer this season so far is Dan Parkinson, who has four goals, with Tom Hannigan, Tom Rutter and James Ellison right behind him on two each. Vauxhall have scored twelve goals this season at a rate of 1.5 goals per game both home and away. They have conceded seventeen goals at a rate of 2.1 goals per game (2.5 away). Their only clean sheet this season was on the opening day when they beat Corby Town 1-0.

Vauxhall have recently signed Karl Clair, a midfielder who has played for the Liverpool Academy, and winger Louis Moss. They have no injury worries and are suspension free. In their last match, a 2-1 home win over Hinckley, Vauxhall lined up as:
1. Zac Jones
2. Steve Wainwright
3. Lee Dames
4. Tom Hannigan
5. Andy Nicholas
6. Chris Noone
7. Craig Mahon
8. Leon Clowes
9. Tom Rutter
10. Dan Parkinson
11. Michael Burns

Celtic have requested permission to extend Alex Cairn's loan and get permission for him to play in the FA Cup, something Leeds previously stipulated he couldn't do. Hopefully, this will be resolved before Saturday. It could be the end of December, beginning of January before Andy Ralph is fit enough to play. In Celtic's last match, the 2-1 home win over Histon, Celtic lined up as:
1. Alex Cairns
2. Mark Lees
3. Jonny Lindsay
4. Kristian Platt
5. Joel Bembo-Leta
6. Jordan Barrow
7. Adam Pepper
8. Greg Wilkinson
9. Jack Laird
10. Jamie Mullan
11. Mitchell Austin

Every non-league team dreams of a fantastic cup-run, hopefully, this will be the start of Celtic's.
