Match Preview :- Barwell - Saturday October 21st, 2017 (15:00:00)

On Saturday, Celtic face Barwell in the league clash at Bower Fold. Barwell are currently tenth in the league on twenty-five points, eight points and nine places above Celtic. There will be a match centre and Twitter feed for this game.

Barwell have won three of their eight away games so far this season, including a 6-0 win over Sutton Coldfield Town that is the best away win so far this season in the league. They have lost three and drawn two. Their last away win was at the end of September when they beat Farsley; since then, they have lost one (1-0 at Whitby) and drawn one (1-1 at Rushall). Overall, in their last five matches they have won once, drawn two and lost twice, scoring three and conceding four.

Their top scorer this season is Ryan Seal with six, just one ahead of Kyle Perry, and the twenty-five goals they've scored have come from nine players. On average they score 1.6 goals per game away from home (1.5 overall), and have conceded their twenty goals at a rate of just one per game (1.2 overall). They've kept two clean sheets on the road and four overall, whilst failing to score also twice away and four overall.

Their last match was a 1-0 home loss to Warrington Town. In that match, they lined up as:
1. Max Smith-Varnam
2. Elliot Percival
3. Ed Nisevic
4. Craig Stanley
5. Michael Townsend
6. Nigel Julien
7. Owen Story
8. Jake Heath
9. Kyle Perry
10. Matt Stenson
11. Tom Bates

Celtic's last match, not including the abandoned game at Ramsbottom, was a 0-0 away draw at Grantham Town, in which we lined up as:
1. Jack Walton
2. Danny Morton
3. Alex Honeyball
4. Greg Wilkinson
5. Luke Ashworth
6. Ross Killock
7. Theo Bailey-Jones
8. Oli Roberts
9. Liam Dickinson
10. Matthew Wolfenden
11. John Cofie

Oliver Crowley and Tom Brown are both available for selection again. A win for Celtic could only lift us one place, depending on Mickleover's result at Farsley, whereas two teams, Halesowen and Marine, are both within two points of Celtic, so a loss could drop us two places.
