Witton begin the new year with the relatively short trip to Market Drayton Town in an Evo-Stik Division One South fixture. The fixture is only the fourth meeting between the two clubs and the second in Shropshire. Market Drayton won the only previous encounter played at The Greenfields Sports Ground, back in 2009 by the odd goal in three, where current Player Manager Martyn Davies stunning strike decided the game in their favour. Witton have prevailed in both home meetings between the two and will be hoping to complete the double over their hosts this afternoon following a 3-1 success at The NetDec Stadium back in August where they found Drayton keeper Ashley Rawlins in inspired form but still managed to get the better of him in the end. Their results have been mixed so far this season, having lost eight times from a dozen games in front of their own fans but, they did pick up an excellent win away at Romulus over the holiday period. Witton will be looking to continue their impressive away form but they will face a tough examination. Kick off at the Greenfields Sports Ground is 3pm.
