Warrington Town vs South Shields, Emirates FA Cup

A place in the second qualifying round of the Emirates FA Cup is at stake on Tuesday as South Shields travel to Warrington Town.

Shields travel to Cantilever Park having kicked-off their Pitching In Northern Premier League campaign with a 3-0 victory over Mickleover at 1st Cloud Arena on Saturday.

They know Tuesday’s opponents well, having had a number of testing encounters against the Yellows over recent seasons, including the 2018-19 season’s play-off final, which Warrington won 2-1.

Shields are expected to be without Alex Kempster, who missed Saturday’s game with a bruised foot, while Gary Brown is also a doubt for the 7.45pm kick-off and Luke Daly continues to miss out with his knee injury.

Joint manager Graham Fenton knows exactly what sort of test awaits the Mariners against Warrington.

He said: “You always get a tough game against Warrington.

“Paul (Carden, manager) gets them really well-organised, they’re difficult to play against and we always have competitive games.

“I’m sure this one will be no different.”
