WARRINGTON Town’s next National League North assignment tests the very boundaries of their new league’s title in terms of geography.

Tomorrow, manager Mark Beesley and his side face a 394-mile round trip to Essex to take on Bishop’s Stortford FC – comfortably their longest away journey of the season.

While they face the prospect of around four hours on the team coach travelling to the game, Beesley has called upon his players to make sure the long journey does not have an impact.

He referenced their last long-distance away fixture last month, when Town fell two goals behind early in a 3-0 loss at Banbury United, as an example of what cannot be allowed to happen.

“They have to do it every other week and we just have to get it out of the way,” he said.

“A lot of these lads have been professional footballers – they understand this type of situation and they know what they’ve got to do.

“We’ll prepare as well as we can and credit to the chairman, he always gets us a nice bus which is as comfortable for us as possible.

“In our last long-distance away game, we didn’t start the match very well so it’s important we’re switched on a bit more.”

Yellows head south looking to extend the mini-revival they have enjoyed of late and stretch their current unbeaten run to four matches.

Their past two fixtures have seen them come from behind to draw with both South Shields and Alfreton Town having beaten King’s Lynn Town before that.

Beesley credits the two-week break that followed their victory over the Norfolk outfit with sparking their recent upturn but he insists it is far too early to get carried away.

“It’s a bit early to say,” he said.

“The King’s Lynn game gave us a bit of a breather with the two-week break after it – it gave us a chance to work a lot on things.

“Even though we won that game, the break came at a good time for us.

“We’ve spoken about staying in games – it’s important the lads keep believing and keep working because it’s a really tough league.

“We worked so hard to get into it and every game is tough.”

Town will be without left-back Andy White for tomorrow’s game as he serves a suspension following his sending-off just eight seconds into the 2-2 draw with South Shields last time out.

They also remain without defender Evan Gumbs (hernia) and midfielders Jay Harris (groin) and Matty McDonald (knee) through injury.

Following Saturday’s lengthy trip, Town also have a midweek fixture as they welcome Farsley Celtic to Cantilever Park on Tuesday, kick off 7.45pm.
