Witton's U21's Development Squad face a tough challenge on Sunday afternoon when they travel to leaders FC United of Manchester in a North West U21 Development League Premier Division fixture. FC United have had an excellent season so far and have won seventeen of their nineteen league games, losing only once, so Witton are well aware of the the task facing them. They go into the game having been narrowly beaten by Vulcan FC in their last outing and will be looking to respond in the right manner. Every challenge for the team is a tough one and they will be trying to impress the game on the leaders and hopefully make things difficult for them. The game is being played at Manchester Regional Arena which forms part of the "Sport City" Complex which also houses the Etihad Stadium and the Academy Stadium, the home of Manchester City & Manchester City Women. Kick off is at 2pm.
