The Form
Droylsden sit 12th in the League table and have won three of the last six games. Their last game was a late 1-0 win against Clitheroe at home last Saturday. And recently added former Radcliffe player Stavros Tserpes to their squad.

The Boro have won two of the last six games. Which was a 3-1 win at Glossop last Saturday and the other was against our next opponents Droylsden in a 2-0 away win. Aaron Burns, Scott Metcalfe and Tunde Owolabi with the goals at Glossop.

The last fixture between the sides was only just a few weeks ago. The Boro won 2-0 with goals from Scott Metcalfe & Ben Wharton for Radcliffe on the 8th February. Highlights are available on Youtube and the Match Report is available here.
