PAUL Carden has urged the people of Warrington to get behind his Yellows side in their FA Trophy first round clash with Altrincham on Saturday, kick off 3pm.

The Robins visit Cantilever Park for the second time this season and a crowd of just under 1,000 turned out to see the sides draw 0-0 in the Evo-Stik Premier Division on October 21.

Travelling supporters outnumbered Warrington fans that day and Carden would like that to be “flipped on its head.”

However, the Town boss admitted the onus was on his players to “put on a show” to ensure fans return for future games.

“We want the gates to increase and these big games will hopefully do that,” he said.

“We want to be up at the top and playing against big clubs in our league like Altrincham.

“It helps the club financially if you have bigger support as well as getting behind the lads.

“When you’re playing someone like Altrincham, you know the away support will probably outnumber the home support but we need to try and flip that on its head.

“We need to be putting on a show to make the fans come back, that’s the whole aim of it.”

Yellows, in fourth, trail table-topping Altrincham by four points in the league and Carden says a positive result on Saturday will help his side “put a marker down” for the rest of the campaign.

“We know they’re a good team but that’s obvious. They’re not top of the league by fluke,” he said.

“We’re a good team as well. We’ve got to make sure we show what we’re about.

“Both teams will want to win to put a marker down on the other.”
