THE man who provided Warrington Town’s greatest ever moment returns to Cantilever Park on Saturday.

Unfortunately for Yellows fans, he will be in the opposition dugout plotting their exit from the FA Cup.

Almost five years after scoring the goal that saw Town stun League Two side Exeter City in this competition, Craig Robinson brings his City of Liverpool side to Cantilever Park in the first qualifying round.

The Purps may ply their trade in a lower division but they will fancy their chances against a Yellows squad stretched to its limits – this really is a banana skin for the home side.

However, with no Premier League or Championship football on show this weekend, Warrington boss Paul Carden is hopeful a big crowd will turn up to see his side through.

“Hopefully we will get a few there as their fans travel well,” he said.

“It’s going to be another good game – there’s the romance element there with Robbo coming back.

“We’ll count the bodies but it’s a game we’re looking forward to.

“Financially, it is really important for us because of the increase in prize money.

“Being a successful side puts demands on you in terms of being in competitions for a long time.

“We’ve done that in previous seasons and I want us to do it again this season.”

Yellows go into the game on the back of three successive BetVictor Northern Premier Division victories, but they have come at a cost.

Winger Jack Mackreth became the latest player to join the casualty list after limping off during Tuesday’s 3-1 win at Nantwich Town.

Scott Sephton also picked up a knock in winning the penalty that secured a 1-0 victory over Mickleover Sports on Saturday, meaning Carden could be without nine first-team players.

“We seem to be losing at least one player every game,” he said.

“Jack Mackreth has done his groin, Scott Sephton did his ankle at the weekend and we missed Louis (Barnes) through suspension.

“Scott will be touch and go for the weekend but we will get Louis back.

“We are probably going to have to look again at getting bodies in before the weekend because Jack Dunn and Dylan Vassallo still aren’t right.

“Jenno (Steve Jennings) and Adam Carden still aren’t right. Beels (Shaun Beeley) could possibly train and feature but we’ll have to see what Thursday brings.”

If Saturday’s game ends level, a replay will take place at Bootle FC on Tuesday, meaning that evening’s scheduled league game against Stafford Rangers will be rearranged.
