Grantham Town have a chance to confirm their play-off place in the Evo-Stik League Premier in their final home game of the season against Warrington Town tomorrow night.

Despite having the chance to confirm their place in the play-offs on Saturday, the Gingerbreads fell short, losing 2-0 at home to Altrincham, who became champions with the win.

The result currently leaves Grantham third in the table, and seven points clear of sixth-placed Shaw Lane AFC, who have one game in hand on the Gingerbreads.

This means Grantham need a win to confirm a play-off place. However, if Shaw Lane drop points tomorrow night then that will also be enough for Grantham to confirm a play-off place.

Opponents Warrington were the first side to assure themselves a place in the play-offs after a 1-1 draw at home to Halesowen Town on Saturday.

The result also put the Yellows four points ahead of Grantham in second place. Both sides will be wanting to finish in second position to gain home advantages for the play-offs

Most importantly for the away side, the Yellows are unbeaten in their previous five games – winning two of them and drawing the other three.

Grantham boss Adam Stevens has said that his side want to get the job done for the fans on Tuesday, telling the club`s Pitchero website: “Unfortunately for us, we came up against a very good side who showed why they deserved to be champions on Saturday.

“But Tuesday presents us with another opportunity to confirm our play-off place and we want to get the job done as soon as possible. We also want to put on a good performance for the fans whose incredible support never fails to impress me so to confirm the play-off place in front of them would be brilliant”.
