WHEELS created the topic: Shaw Lane AFC vs Witton Albion.
Witton travel to South Yorkshire on Tuesday evening for the biggest game of the season when they take on leaders Shaw Lane AFC. Not a title-decider in itself but the game will go go a long way towards the destination of the Championship, any advantage for either club this late in the campaign could prove to be crucial with only three games left afterwards. The fact in itself that Witton have managed to haul themselves even close to their opponents is incredible and says a great deal about the character, determination and fighting spirit of the players. A fourteen point gap between the two since the beginning of February has gradually closed and they now go into tonight's meeting separated only by goal difference. The race has been been between these two over recent weeks as they pulled away from the chasing pack and it could very well go down to the final day. Shaw Lane have still to suffer defeat on their own ground this season but Albion know they have already beaten the Yorkshire club once and are more than capable of doing it again. They will certainly be well supported and at the same time give the leaders their biggest attendance of the season. It's all set up nicely for the game and whoever holds their nerve and takes what opportunities come along will likely come out on top. Kick off at Shaw Lane Sports Club is 7.45pm.

I have been retired for 8 years now and I can confirm two things; You cannot work out how you found time to go to work and it is wonderful to be TOTALLY in charge of your life, with the wife's permission of course. Read me in the Our Town magazine.

I would love to go but with my eyesight and back driving that far is out of the question so a coach is the only way for me.

I am driving to the game tomorrow, and plan to be on the road by 16:30, with a stop for food on the way once we get the other side of Glossop.

I have room for 1 person in the car if anybody is stuck for a lift.
