Been a while.........season suspended..... More questions than answers about resumption, but as things stand Reds will restart the season with a trip to Nantwich in the FAT.
Having had 5 league matches postponed, this is our first fixture since the 0-1 win at Glossop in the previous round on 31 Oct. With 38 days between matches, stats could well be irrelevant, but here they are none the less.

Lost 3-1 but doesnt tell the full story Dominated for long spells especially 2nd half and were much the fitter. Unfortunately with Scotty injured and Ruben only coming on at ht after his injury we lacked firepower and despite playing all the football and creating a good few chances we only got the 1 goal through a Conner pen. They were hanging on at the end but they sealed the win deep in injury time when Jim got stranded out of his area and their striker found the open net from 40 yards. Not sure when we'll play again but once again we proved given the chance we could easily compete in the level above.
