Another tough clash awaits Nantwich Town at Whitby says manager Dave Cooke


Nantwich Town manager Dave Cooke says he is expecting another tough clash away at Whitby tomorrow, as his side look to make it seven wins from their last eight games in all competitions.

The Dabbers currently sit 13th in the Evo-Stik Premier League and still maintain an outside chance of a promotion, with news this week that Shaw Lane’s stadium may not make the criteria for a promotion, meaning the team finishing 6th could earn a play-off place.

“We played Whitby early on in the season, probably three months ago and we won 1-0,” said Cooke.

“But on the day, we were very fortunate to get the win and they really impressed me.

“Their results have been very much up and down, they’re quite a few points behind us and they’ve played about four or five games more.

“I know they drew at Stafford last weekend, it’ll be another tough game, they’ll be no easy games in this league.”

The club also received a boost this past week after it was revealed that on-loan Newcastle Town striker Jordan Cole had made his loan move permanent, while Blackpool loanee goalkeeper Myles Boney has extended his stay for a further month.

“He’s [Jordan Cole] only played a couple of games actually because he’s had this hamstring problem but we’ve seen enough of him in training and in the games that he’s played to know that he’ll be fine.

“In the four games Myles has played, he’s kept three clean sheets, however he does know that Fabian’s the number one, but he’s enjoyed his time that much with us.

“Blackpool feel that instead of him having no game on a Saturday, they’d like him to continue here. However, they have got a 24 hour call back on him if someone comes in from our league or higher to give him some more game time.”
