WITH the first part of the Easter weekend done, Warrington Town and Warrington Rylands both stand on the brink of sealing their fates.

Both play their penultimate games of the season this afternoon and have their fate in their own hands, with Town looking to secure a play-off spot while Rylands are gunning for the NPL West Division title.

Here’s how both sides stand going into today's games…


Town host relegation-threatened Witton Albion at Cantilever Park this afternoon on a day in which both sides' fate could be sealed.

Here is how the table and run-ins look for Yellows and their rivals…

Following a 2-0 win at Atherton Collieries on Saturday - their fourth away win in a row - Town's superior goal difference means they will effectively secure a play-off spot if they better sixth-place Bamber Bridge's result.

They will also have their eye on snatching third spot from final-day opponents Matlock Town, and will do so with victories in their final two games.

A Yellows win today would also relegate their visitors, who make the short trip from Northwich knowing they must win in order to take their fight for survival into the final day.


There was a big swing in Rylands' favour in the NPL West title race on Saturday despite the fact Dave McNabb's side were not in action.

That is because second-placed Workington lost away at Marine, meaning Blues' destiny is back in their own hands as they travel to 1874 Northwich this afternoon.

With Workington facing the relegated pair of Kendal Town and Market Drayton Town in their final two fixtures, Blues are likely to need two victories to ensure automatic promotion.

However, it would be sealed today if Rylands are victorious and Workington are beaten at home by Kendal.

Fourth-placed Leek Town's loss to Runcorn Linnets on Saturday means Blues are effectively guaranteed a home play-off semi-final at worst - something that would be mathematically assured by just one more point.
