Witton welcome mid-table Bamber Bridge to Wincham Park on Saturday afternoon in an Evo-Stik Premier Division fixture. The Preston club have found life in the Premier Division a challenge for them particularly on the road, where they have only managed one win from nine league games on their travels. Their home form has been good including a 2-0 success in the reverse fixture back in September and they will be hoping to complete the double in this fixture. They now have a new manager at the helm, following Neil Reynolds decision to take over at FC United of Manchester, so Mick Taylor has assumed the mantle and results have been steady, having won their last three games. Witton's recent form in the league has been decent and they will look to continue that form following last weekend 's excellent point at high-flying Gainsborough Trinity. Carl Macauley and the team can now focus on climbing the table as they have no further cup distractions following Tuesday night's defeat by Winsford United albeit on penalties and they will be doing everything to put a run together as games come thick and fast as we approach the festive festive period. Bamber Bridge will prove difficult opponents as they always do but Witton will also look to cause problems of their own as they go in search of three crucial points. Kick off at Wincham Park is 3pm.

Looking forward to the game Bamber played well at their place and won well. So time for revenge, lots of selection issues for Carl today with injuries and the loss of Liam Goulding. Foley, Jones, Lingouba and Hopley doubtful, picking the team on here is nearly impossible but I'll have a go.
Gards, Wardle, Humphreys, Wilson, Devine
McKenna, Smart, Foley
But with so many doubtful it could change a lot but good luck to the lads UTA
