After a month of inactivity, the Rams finally reappeared on the pitch on Saturday away to lowly Kendal Town.
In a somewhat understandably rusty performance, a late header from Luke Thompson saw the visitors return home with a welcome three points to keep up the pressure on League leaders Workington who lead the Rams by seven points and a superior goal difference, although the Lancashire side do have two games in hand.
Arriving for a rearranged game is the recently merged Ossett United team.
Struggling third from bottom of the table, Ossett have managed just one league away win all season, whilst the hosts have only dropped all three points once at home, so on the face of it, a home win looks highly likely.
However, as the Rams look to cling on to the coat-tails of Workington, Ossett will be determined to avoid being dragged into a relegation battle, and football being football, it all depends what happens on the night.
It’s now over a month since the home fans had a match to enjoy, so the hope is that the recent increases in attendance numbers can continue with home followers being tempted out of their armchairs to help the team continue with their push for promotion.
The extra support has been greatly appreciated by the team, and the fans can continue to be the “twelfth man” as the last few weeks of the campaign will determine which division the Rams will be in next season.
