look ahead to saturday’s game
SALE FC vs Rosslyn park, SATURDAY 10th December, KO 2.30PM
Park are headed to the northwest on Saturday to face an in-form Sale FC side.
The pivotal clash sees 4th place Park take on 2nd place Sale in a game that has real implications on the league standings. Sale currently sit on 52 points, just 4 ahead of Park on 48, with Park leading on points difference. Meaning a win could easily see Park leapfrog the Manchester outfit.
This will be a tall task however as Sale have been on fine form as of late, winning their last 6 on the bounce with last week’s away win at previously unbeaten Rams being the highlight from this stretch. In addition to this, Sale have yet to lose at Heywood Road this season, with both of their losses coming away from home at Cambridge and Cinderford. Park will need to be on top form in order to have a shot at breaking both these streaks.
However, recent history between the two sides does favour Park. Since Sale’s promotion from National League 2 North following the 2017/18 season they have faced Park a total of 6 times. Across these 6 meetings Park have picked up 5 wins, with the only loss being the most recent meeting between two sides in February earlier this year as Sale eked out a narrow 4-point victory. Park will hope to avenge this loss on Saturday and, in doing so, propel themselves right back into the title race.
