WINSFORD United will hope to have the opportunity to get their season back on track at Congleton Town on Boxing Day.

Despite a strong start to the season, they have not played a North West Counties League Premier Division game for two months.

That was a 2-1 home loss to neighbours Northwich Victoria, their sixth game in 18 days after the season was delayed in starting by over a month.

Blues will face a Congleton side that has been able to keep the rust at bay thanks to their run in the FA Vase.

Over the past three weekends they have progressed to the fourth round thanks to wins on penalties against Coventry United, in the third round on Saturday, and New Mills on December 5.

After Boxing Day, United are next slated to play at home to Padiham on Saturday, January 2.

If all goes to plan, games will come thick and fast in the new year with a trip to Whitchurch Alport on January 4 followed by home clashes with Charnock Richard on January 9 and Bootle on January 11.

They will then head to Barnoldswick Town on January 16.
