A WEEK without a midweek fixture has come at the right time for Warrington Town, manager Paul Carden says.

Yellows agreed to a request from opponents Nantwich Town to postpone Tuesday’s game to allow the Dabbers the maximum time to prepare for their FA Cup first round trip to League Two side Stevenage.

It is the first time this season Warrington have not had a midweek game, but Carden says they have used the time productively.

The Yellows boss also says the break has given the likes of skipper Jay McCarten, who missed Saturday’s FA Trophy win over Bamber Bridge with a hamstring injury, time to recover.

“It has given us a few options, with respect to going watching games from our league or scouting potential transfer targets,” he said.

“To be honest, the break has come at a decent time for a few of the lads.

“Jay McCarten missed Saturday with a hamstring strain. It’s nothing serious but not having a game on Tuesday will help his recovery.

“There’s a few lads in a similar boat to Jay so it won’t do them any harm.”

McCarten is expected to be fit in time for Yellows’ clash with Sutton Coldfield Town, the Evo-Stik Premier Division’s bottom side, at Cantilever Park on Saturday, kick off 3pm.

Carden believes it will not matter what the opposition do if his side stick to their gameplan.

“All we can do is worry about what we’re doing,” he said.

“When we haven’t done as well as we can, it hasn’t been through the opposition tearing it up. It’s been through our own doing and as a result of us going away from what we’ve worked on.

“We’ve proved that, when we’re on our game, it doesn’t matter what the opposition do. We’ve just got to concentrate on ourselves.”
