Witton complete a very busy week with a trip to Derbyshire to take on Gresley FC in an Evo-Stik Division One South fixture. Seven points in that time has seen them draw level with leaders Shaw Lane, it might have been more but it has taken a monumental effort from the management staff and the players to even get close. Five games to go to the end of an excellent league season and still everything to play for as the campaign draws to a conclusion. Four defeats from 37 league games to this point, runners up guaranteed but who is to to say that the team can't go one better. The players have performed with the belief that their ambitions can be achieved and who can disbelieve that when they have shown such character and determination so far and the desire to succeed. Gresley are currently in the lower reaches of the league but still pose a problem for Witton which can't be underestimated and have been beaten eight times at home this season. The last one being at home to play - off chasing Lincoln United last weekend but prior to that they had taken ten points from the previous twelve. So it's no easy game for Albion but they certainly will be giving it everything as they pursue the top prize. Kick off at The Moat Ground is 3pm.

Was planning to get to this game as it's another new ground for me, but a three hour round trip to support a team whos best keeper is just another spectator doesn,t justify the time and effort involved.

Was there last night to witness his cunning plan first hand vi8, was happy with most of it, but to have ten players busting a gut for ninety minutes only to have their hard work undone by one selection on the teamsheet didn't seem right. IMO.

Totally agree. Was looking forward to going to the match tomorrow and to the Shaw Lane on Tuesday. But the way I feel at the moment my meds ney, time & effort could be put to better use.

We'll probably have Brad & Rob on the bench tomorrow to keep Danny company!!

Appologies for appearing pathetic to you Matt but as this is a fans forum for us to air our views that is what has happened.Some of us have had our say, nothing more nothing less. You go to Gresley tomorrow and cheer the lads to a win.

How dare you question whether we are real fans just because we have expressed an opinion that it involves a lot of time effort and money to watch such important games where the best team is not being selected

Well I must say any negativity is unwarranted because what Carl and the rest of the guys have done this season is above and beyond what we expected. We have had a fantastic season and even though I was a little disappointed Danny wasn't playing last night I have total trust in Carl's decisions. We still have a handful of games to go and rather than stay away we should be going in droves to these games. I'm not going to Gresley tomorrow for personal reasons at home but I will be leaving work and driving up the M62 like a bat out of hell on Tuesday night and will be at the remaining games. This season has been very memorable and extremely enjoyable. Come on and lets get behind them.

I will be doing and so will a large number of Wittoners because thankfully we don't give up on our team just because we don't agree with one team selection

We are not party to the decisions the team manager and assistant come to. There may be a very valid reason for not including Danny Roberts in the team (apart from injury). Come on, this team have been superb all season, so it's wrong to have a go at anybody right at the death. If the worst happens ie we finish second, then lose in the play-offs, we've had a season full of excitement, good football, and a team to be proud of. The management have been superb, and don't you think the manager has more idea than any of us. Don't know who reads these posts, but quite honestly, if any of the team and/or management see some of the remarks on here, they could be excused for thinking WTF, why are we bothering. GET BEHIND THE TEAM AND MANAGER, and let's get the job done. We are good enough TOGETHER!!!!!

Even though I thought it was a really bad decision re the keeper last night I will be there tomorrow. I could never give Witton up even though it has crossed my mind on hundreds of occasions!!

Carl has been brilliant this season, but everyone makes mistakes he is human after all. Lets get behind them tomorrow we are not out it yet! UTA

If I had the wings of a sparrow...

I agree that people are allowed to air their opinions and I understand some of the frustrations but one bad decision should not stop you from getting behind the team and management at a crucial time when they need it the most and in all honesty they deserve it the most. If you are happy to stay away over that one thing then stay away full stop. That's my opinion that I am free to air!
