Gloucester City’s hopes for survival dwindling as they head to face Warrington Town

Gloucester City’s hope for survival continues as they travel to face Warrington Town on Saturday, March 16. 

The Gloucestershire side currently sit in 23rd place with time against them if they are to pull off a remarkable escape in their bid to remain in the National League. 

City will travel to Cantilever Park on Saturday to face an inconsistent Warrington side as they look to provide some survival hope for fans.

Mike Cook’s side will be hoping to turn their fortunes around after suffering a late loss against table-toppers Tamworth last time out.

City found themselves ahead just before the hour mark after Danny Wright converted his effort, but Benjamin Milnes brought his side level before Daniel Creaney provided the blow, wrapping up all three points. 

Cook’s team are winless in their previous two, with their last victory coming against Scarborough Athletic back in late February.

For the hosts, Warrington, they occupy the 10th spot, 26 points adrift from City, and come into the game off the back of a 2-0 away win against 17th place Farsley Celtic. 

With less than 10 games to go, every point is vital for the Tigers, but hope is fading as City suffered a 3-1 defeat to tomorrow’s opponents last time the two sides met. 

Town struck early as Connor Woods netted inside just three minutes and their lead was soon doubled after Josh Amis slotted his effort past Zach Jeacock. 

The Tigers did pull one back just after the break through Benjamin Beresford but a second from Amis wrapped up all three points on the road for Mark Beesley’s side.

Cook and his side will be looking to seek revenge this time out but with Town coming into the game off the back of a win, the Gloucestershire based side will have a tough test on their hands if they are to keep survival hopes alive.
