AFTER nearly a month on the road, Warrington Rylands are back on home soil this evening as they look to continue their fine recent form.

Michael Clegg’s side will bid to stretch their unbeaten run in all competitions to 10 matches but face a side in FC United of Manchester who will no doubt be motivated by revenge.

The two sides met just 10 days ago in the FA Cup second qualifying round at Broadhurst Park, with Rylands humbling their hosts 4-0 to make this their longest ever run in the competition.

They have to chance to stretch it even further on Saturday when they visit Macclesfield but for now, Clegg’s focus is solely on maintaining their good form having risen to second in the Northern Premier League Premier Division table.

“We’ve not won anything yet,” he said following Saturday’s 4-2 win at Matlock Town.

“We’ve had eight games and we’ve now got a big game against FC, who will want revenge.

“You can’t just turn up in this league or take your foot off the gas. That’s how football is – you’re one bad week away from a crisis at this level.

“It’s one game at a time for us as we’ve not got a big enough squad to look too far in front of us.

“We’re just looking at trying to get three points at home before we even think about Macclesfield.”

Tonight’s game at Gorsey Lane kicks off at 7.45pm.

Meanwhile, Rylands have been handed an away tie for their first FA Trophy assignment of the season.

They will visit Oldham-based side Avro, who ply their trade one tier below them in the NPL’s West Division, in the third qualifying round on Saturday, October 7.
