Match Preview :- Warrington Town - Saturday October 19th, 2019 (15:00:00)

On Saturday, Celtic travel to Warrington Town (kick off 3pm). Warrington Town are having another good season, currently sitting fourth in the table on twenty-two points, nine places and six points above Celtic despite playing a game less.

Warrington have lost twice this season, both at home. They lost 3-1 on the opening day to Morpeth and, most recently, at the end of September, losing 1-0 to FC United. They have won half of their games (six), but only twice at home, from five games, most recently, drawing 2-2 with Lancaster. Their last two games were both away and both wins, beating Whitby 1-0 and Matlock 2-1. Their last home win was at the end of August, when they beat Mickleover 1-0.

The top scorers at Warrington are Matthew Chadwick and Ben Garritty, both of whom are on four. They have scored nineteen goals in total at a rate of 1.6 goals per game, with seven coming at home at a rate of 1.4 per game. They have failed to score in one game at home (from two), when FC United beat them. At the other end, they have conceded thirteen goals at home at a rate of 1.1 goals per game, with seven of them at home at a rate of 1.4 goals per game. They have kept one clean sheet at home, in their last home win, beating Mickleover 1-0. Eleven of their nineteen goals have come in the first half, whilst nine of their thirteen goals against have come in the second half.

Last season, we drew 0-0 at Warrington, whilst the season before we won 1-0 thanks to a Tony McMillan own goal in the last minute. We have a good record there, winning the previous four meaning we are unbeaten at Warrington's ground, though the last meeting between the teams saw Warrington beat us for the first time, at Bower Fold, winning 2-1, with Neil Kengni's seventy-fifth minute goal not enough to cancel out Tony Gray and Jack Mackreth's openers.

In Warrington's last match, the 2-1 away win over Matlock, they lined up as:
1. Tony McMillan
2. Mitchell Duggan
3. Thomas Warren
4. Scott Sephton
5. Mark Roberts
6. David Raven
7. Shaun Beeley
8. Ben Garritty
9. Jack Mackreth
10. Tony Gray
11. Dylan Vassallo

Warrington have former Celts Tony McMillan and Bohan Dixon, but Dixon is injured and unlikely to play. Warrington have a few injuries and were unable to name a full bench against Matlock.

Celtic's consistent inconsistency saw us lose 3-0 to Stafford on Tuesday. In that match, we lined up as:
1. Alex Fojtíček
2. Declan Walker
3. Kallum Mantack
4. Ross Dent
5. Stephen O'Halloran
6. Chris Smalley
7. Scott Bakkor
8. Nathan Valentine
9. Craig Hobson
10. Darius Osei
11. Jonathan Ustabasi

With a good enough win, Celtic could go seventh, but any win is good enough to get us into the top ten depending on other results. We are within three points of Grantham (away at South Shields), Hyde (at home to Morpeth), FC United (away at Atherton), Witton (away at Buxton), with Nantwich and Whitby not in action. A loss could see either Morpeth (away at Hyde) or Scarborough (away at Bamber Bridge) overtake us and drop to fifteenth.
