So straight from Saturdays point vs Glossop, Robin van der Laan's team look to continue the unbeaten run tonight against another side who are not too far away from us in the league in 1874 Northwich.
1874 currently find themselves in 15th place 2 above Castle and only 4 points ahead of us
In their last 6 games they have won 2 drawn 2 and lost 3, scoring 7 and concerning 10, The win come at the hands of promotion-chasing Leek Town which most will see as a real upset in the league as Leek have been in good form.
How the current PPG bottom playoff looks like after Saturday
On Saturday they also got a 1-1 draw with Widnes which was also their 5th game on the road with tonight making it 6 in a row on the road.
Last time we played
earlier in the season we both met on a Tuesday night back in September when Castle took a first-half lead from a well-worked goal by Tommy van der Laan only for 1874 to draw the game level in the 87th minute
Who 2 Watch
Has to be Matthew Woolley, he scored against us last time we played and he has 3 in his last 2 games and 14 on the season, he is sure to be yet another handful for the Castle backline tonight.
