DO Warrington Town have a midweek problem?

It is certainly a question being asked in and around Cantilever Park – and it is easy to see why.

Yellows have lost half of the 10 fixtures they have played in midweek this season, with Tuesday games yielding only two wins – home and away victories over Buxton in August and January respectively.

Their latest midweek setback came via a 3-0 home loss to Southport this week and with at least two more Tuesday night matches to come this season, it is something manager Mark Beesley is keen to put right.

The first of those sees Town travel to Farsley Celtic this coming Tuesday, with a trip to Peterborough Sports to follow on a midweek date still to be confirmed.

“It’s something we’ve spoken about and definitely something we need to look at,” Beesley said.

“We need to look at the reasons why, what we can do and what we’re maybe doing differently.

“The planning and the prep is all there but I think sometimes the level we’re at now means Saturday-Tuesday games are really taxing physically and mentally.

“Over the season, we’ve found that tough and we have to look it how we can fix that.”

With no game this weekend, Town do at least have a full week’s preparation before returning to the field as they look to put the disappointment of losing to Southport behind them quickly.

And Beesley stressed the importance of his side using that time productively as they nurse players carrying niggles back to health, with left-back Andy White the main concern after he was forced out of the Southport fixture.

“There’s lads that played on Tuesday that probably shouldn’t have played,” he said.

“We’ve a few injuries in there so Thursday will probably be a late session before starting to plan for Farsley.

“It’s a good time to not have a game but at the same time, it’s a frustrating time not to as you want to get back on the pitch as quickly as possible.”
