TWO games in three days would be a test for the biggest of squads at any level of football.

That is what faces Warrington Town over the Easter weekend as they prepare for two games that look set to make or break their play-off hopes.

Saturday sees them travel to Atherton Collieries, who are winless in seven league games, before an Easter Monday clash with neighbours Witton Albion, who are still fighting to avoid relegation, at Cantilever Park.

Manager Mark Beesley is confident he has the players at his disposal to cope with the extremely busy schedule but says they will be tested in different ways across the weekend.

“It’s important everyone is ready for two games in three days,” he said.

“We’ve got a good squad and it’s important we use that at the right times.

“We’ve got two different types of games against teams that don’t really give too much away.

“We’ve got to be at our best at the weekend, starting with Atherton on Saturday.”

Town go into the weekend still in a good position to secure a Northern Premier League Premier Division play-off spot but are continuing to make life hard for themselves.

Following a 1-1 draw with Stafford Rangers on Saturday, they remain fourth in the table but are just three points ahead of Bamber Bridge – the closest team outside the current top-five.

A growing concern has been their home form – their record of 32 points from 20 games at Cantilever Park is only the ninth-best in the division.

More recently, they have taken just one point from their past three matches on home soil, including defeats to sides in the lower reaches of the table in Mickleover and Ashton United.

“We’ve been great away from home but our home form hasn’t been good enough,” Beesley said following the Stafford game.

“We looked a bit tired in the second half and at this stage of the season, freshness helps.”

Both games over the Easter weekend kick off at 3pm.
