Just one fixture takes place in #MatchweekEighteen, with Skelmersdale United hosting Carlton Town in the North Cup. We preview all the action of this clash between two unfamiliar opponents.
Skelmersdale United v Carlton Town
There’s no surprise that the key matchup comes from the only fixture scheduled for #MatchweekEighteen as #ESPFANottinghamshire side, Carlton Town travel over to Skelmersdale United to face them in the North Cup.
The hosts have been in excellent form recently and are unbeaten in four games in the North Division. An astonishing comeback which saw them come from 2-0 down at half-time to win 3-2 all but sealed second place for them and will give them a huge momentum boost heading into this cup fixture.
Carlton Town on the other hand have a confidence boost of their own recently. In #MatchweekSixteen they picked up their first win of the season after beating Yate Town 5-0 in an excellent team performance. They will be hoping to build on that excellent result and take down Skelmersdale United to get their cup run off the ground.
#ESPFANottinghamshire student Maddy Pipe is relieved to have picked up their first win of the season and hopes it is the first of many to come. He said: “After our win from last game, we were buzzing and finally got a result we deserve. Hopefully that win is the start of many to show our quality and show that we are not an easy team.”
