PAUL Carden says Warrington Town’s trip to promotion rivals Farsley Celtic on Saturday is their biggest game of the season – but only because it is the next one.

The Evo-Stik Premier Division’s two form sides meet on Saturday, with Yellows sitting third behind second-place Farsley on goals scored alone.

Town have won seven league games in a row – a run of form bettered only by the Celts’ nine-game winning streak.

With league leaders Nantwich Town facing a tricky trip to Gainsborough Trinity on Saturday, the winner of the Farsley-Warrington game could conceivably find themselves top of the table at the end of play.

However, that is not something Carden was keen to focus too much upon.

“The next game is always the biggest game of the season,” he said.

“Bamber Bridge was our biggest game on Tuesday, and now Farsley is on Saturday.

“We need to make sure we’re all right in training on Thursday.

“There are a few bits to work on but we will go into Saturday full of confidence, and so will they.

“It tees it up to be a really good game.

“It’s the first week in January. Even if we do go top, it doesn’t mean we’ll be there in April

“There’s three points at stake and that is all we are focusing on.

“Every point is massive for us now and we have to go all out to get them on Saturday.”

Yellows boast the division’s best away record having won eight of their 11 games away from Cantilever Park, but they are travelling to face a side that have been beaten just once at home all season – and that was back in August.

The two sides met on the opening day of the season and Farsley ran out 2-0 victors at Cantilever Park, but Carden says his side are keen to show just how much they have improved since then.

“From where we were then to where we are now, it’s chalk and cheese,” he said.

“They have just carried on with what they were doing.

“We know enough about them and their players, but likewise they know a lot of our players.

“It’s all about who turns up on the day, but we’ll definitely be there.”

Yellows have fitness doubts over wingers Jack Mackreth and Jack Dunn, who will both be assessed after picking up hamstring injuries over Christmas.

Charlie Albinson has returned to Blackburn Rovers following the completion of his loan spell, so Tony McMillan looks set to return in goal.
