Altrincham v Congleton Town match preview


ALTY take on Congleton Town in the preliminary round of the Cheshire Senior Cup on Tuesday night (7:45pm) as some of the youngsters and fringe players could get some action under the lights at The J.Davidson Stadium.

This could include potentially include new signing Charlie Scott, with the former Manchester United defender joining last week and yet to see any game time, it could be an opportunity to get a first look at him if Phil Parkinson decides to select him.

Parkinson's side will go into the game as favourites against a Congleton side that are currently plying their trade in North West Counties League Premier Division.

The Robins have won the competition on seven occasions, the last of those being back in 2009 and went out in the second round to Winsford United last time out after a penalty shootout victory over Chester in the first round.

Last time out:

The last meeting between the two sides in the Cheshire Senior Cup saw Congleton Town come away with a 4-0 win against an Alty team including six teenagers. A hat-trick from Jack Graham and a Michael Koral strike saw Congleton come away with the victory that time out.

Admission prices:

Adults: £7

Concessions: £5

Under-12s: £1
