Can Jody Banim’s side book their place in the first round of the Emirates FA Cup? Photo : Ashton United FC

Jody Banim’s Ashton United side make the short trip to the MerseyRail Community Stadium on Saturday afternoon as they take on Southport for a place in the first round of the 2018/2019 Emirates FA Cup. Last time out, ‘The Robins’ were left disappointed as they visited Durham to take on Spennymoor FC, in which they suffered a 5-0 defeat. But, Banim’s side will definitely be up for the battle in Southport as they’ve produced several impressive performances so far in their Vanarama National League North campaign.

As for the hosts, they’ve had a mixture of form, winning just two of their last eight matches in all competitions thus far. The two teams have already met each other once in the league this season, which was a 2-2 draw, and I can really see there being a few goals in this one. On current form, you can’t really seperate the pair, and It’s certain to be a very entertaining match, and with so much at stake. A place in the first round of the Emirates FA Cup, which would boost both clubs financially.

En route to the fourth qualifying round, Jody Banim’s side had to overcome Trafford and King’s Lynn Town. The player certainly to watch out for is Ashton United’s star striker Matthew Chadwick (pictured below) Chadwick’s been in great form this season, and he’ll be looking to add to his tally on Saturday.
