It's going to be a tough ask of the lads in these two legged games against our Conference compatriots and with our recent loss of form coupled with the Vics recent revival we can't be too confident of winning both games but I expect us to at least win the one at home.
We should be at full strength once more but there is a slight question mark over Gavin Hurren. He went off with a foot injury during the game on Tuesday evening against Halifax but it was hopefully a precaution and he'll be there ready and waiting.
Northwich still have Chris Williams out of action following his broken fibula that he received in our our win there at the beginning of the season. He could start to make his comeback towards the end of the season.
Also out with long term injuries are Michael Byrne, Stuart Elliott and Jonny Allan. James Dean is cup tied so, apart from those, Steve Burr will have a full squad to choose from.
All being well I think we should be looking to win this game and with the second leg the following weekend it should set us up nicely to finish them off. See you at Wembley Stadium. Or The Ricoh!
