FOR Warrington Town, there is now very little room for error.

While nobody in the BetVictor Northern Premier League Premier Division has lost fewer games than Yellows this season, the number of draws they have had means they are now playing catch-up with those above them.

They visit one of those sides – fourth-place Lancaster City – on Saturday, kick off 3pm, knowing a win will take them above their hosts.

Manager Paul Carden knows that these are the kind of games his side need to be making a statement in from now on as they hunt a top-three spot.

“We’ve got to go full throttle now as there isn’t much room for error,” he said.

“You look to games that we’ve dominated but have not finished off – the likes of Atherton, Witton and Bamber Bridge lately.

“You’re talking another six points there at least. That’s the biggest disappointment of being in the position we’re in.

“We want to claw back some points and gain some ground. There’s a lot of football to be played and points to play for.

“These are the sorts of games where we want to be picking up results to crank things up a bit.

“Lancaster have got good senior players amongst them like Dave Norris and Matty Blinkhorn.

“You can see there’s a togetherness in that squad and that can get you further than a lot of people think.

“We know its going to be a tough game but they’ll know it will be tough for them as well.”

Currently, Yellows’ only injury worry is over winger Jack Dunn, who missed Saturday’s 2-1 win over Whitby Town with a quadricep injury.

Otherwise, Carden has a fully fit squad to choose from and with games starting to pile up, the return to fitness of several key players has come at a good time.

However, that does not stop concerns over Dunn, who has missed large chunks of the season through several injuries.

“I’m hopeful he’ll be back able to be involved on Saturday, but he’s missing too much football and he recognises that,” Carden said.

“He’s becoming very, very injury prone. We can’t get him on the pitch for a spell of games.

“I think we have to sit down with Jack and try to get to the root of it because he’s such a good player.

“When he plays well, there’s no better player in this league.

“He scored a goal against Basford a few weeks ago that I don’t think anyone else in the league can score

“I think we need to try and work with him and help him to get over these little niggles, tweaks and twinges. He needs to be more robust to the demands of football.

“We’re obviously disappointed every time he misses a game because he can be key for us.”

“We’re going to use the squad – that’s what its there for and we’ve worked hard to build it.

“It’s come at a good time as we’re starting to play Saturday-Tuesday most weeks.

“The more players we have available, the more competition there is and the higher the standards are.”

Yellows are also in action on Tuesday evening as they host 1874 Northwich in the Cheshire Senior Cup quarter finals, kick off 7.45pm.
