Lowestoft Town make their first ever visit to Ewen Fields on Saturday with the Tigers still looking for their first three points of the season. The Tigers go into the game with high morale after an 8-0 victory in the Manchester Premier Cup on Tuesday away to Chadderton. Lowestoft's last game was a thrilling home victory against Bradford Park Avenue, which the Trawler Boys won 3-2.
The game sees Lowestoft travelling up on the Friday with an overnight stopover after tough travels so far this season has made the team struggle away from home so far having failed to pick up a win from their first 4 away trips. Their leading scorer, Chris Henderson, will be looking to add to his 4 goals so far this season as the Trawler Boys look for their first away win.
The Tigers previous game at Ewen Fields was the tough defeat against Hednesford where the Tigers hit the woodwork three times. There may be starts for recent signings Alex McQuade and Liam Chilvers in defence, with captain Josh Brizell having to become a makeshift centre back during the start of the season.
Lowestoft are a rare quantity in terms of management as they have Mick Chapman and Andy Gallagher as co-managers, a move that has been successful with the team gaining promotion via the play offs from the Isthmian League last season.
