THINGS will be a little bit different for Warrington Town this weekend.

Rather than the traditional Saturday 3pm kick off, Yellows welcome Matlock Town to Cantilever Park for a Sunday afternoon affair, kick off 3pm.

Those within the club are hoping the change to the norm will result in a higher than usual gate and for the team, it means an extra day to prepare.

Manager Paul Carden admits playing on a Sunday will feel “strange” and he is also wary of a rejuvenated Matlock side coming to visit.

“It’s something we have to deal with and we have to make sure we’re on it,” he said.

“It will feel strange playing on a Sunday and waiting for the game because you normally have a routine.

“We’ll be using the extra time – we’ll get to watch a few games ourselves on Saturday.

“Matlock have had a new manager in and there’s obviously been a reaction to that.

They had their first win in a while on Tuesday night, a convincing win over Radcliffe. Their tails will be up coming here.”

After weeks of hanging on to their BetVictor Northern Premier League Premier Division play-off spot, Town’s patchy form has now cost them the top-five berth they have held for most of the season.

They go into the weekend’s fixtures in sixth – one point outside those currently in the promotion shake-up.

Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Lancaster City was only their fifth of the campaign in 26 games, but a tally of 10 draws means every reverse from now on will prove more costly.
