Athletic travel over to Cleckheaton tomorrow to take on Wyke Wanderers in the West Yorkshire League Cup. The game is scheduled to kick-off at 2pm and a look at the weather shows that the game should be played in decent sunshine!
IMPORTANT - With the weather being unpredictable to say the least, please keep an eye out on both ours and Wyke’s social media feeds for game status updates.
We seem to have a bit of a jinx this season when it comes to playing Wyke, with both our previous attempts in the league and cup being thwarted by the weather, hopefully it will be a case of third time lucky!
As we all know, league form counts for nothing in the cup, but with the two teams occupying spaces in the top half of the table, it looks like being a great encounter!
Using the league table as a bit of a guide, we can see that our hosts have a good record at home with five wins and a single defeat. They have scored 18 times (avg. 3.0 goals per game) whilst conceding half that (avg. 1.5 goals per game).
Looking through the Wetherby Athletic database, we have met each other at least six times with us taking the win three times and Wyke claiming two wins. Goals wise, we have scored 13 times whilst Wyke have hit seven.
The referee for this match will be Mr Josh Brayshaw. This will be Mr Brayshaw’s first match in charge of us, although he was the man in the middle during Wyke’s 2-0 win over Oxenhope Recreation earlier on in this season.
If you would like to come and watch this game, the address you will need is Whitechapel Road, Low Moor, Cleckheaton, BD19 6HW.
