Nantwich Town may shake things up for their trip to face Workington Reds today after they sealed a trio of new signings.

Town announced the arrivals of Joe Davis, Wealth da Silva and Nathan Brown on Thursday night which could open the door for them to play a new-look team when they visit Borough Park this afternoon (3pm ko).

Davis is the son of a former Nantwich boss and a graduate of Port Vale’s academy who has enjoyed spells in senior football with Vale, Luton Town, Leicester City, Fleetwood Town and York City.

Midfielder da Silva has signed on dual registration from Winsford United, having developed at Bury, while winger Brown has joined from Marine.

The move to strengthen the Dabbers’ squad will give Reds boss Lee Andrews and assistant Steve Rudd something else to think about ahead of another huge game against a promotion-chasing side in their battle to escape relegation trouble.

Meanwhile, Andrews and Rudd have the luxury of a full squad to choose from for today’s game, with a number of players set to miss out on the matchday squad.

It is a welcome boost for the club with eight games set to be played in less than a month as the business end of the season sees the pressure ramp up.

Andrews said: "It's a nice change from this time last year when we were down to about 12 players.

"Obviously there will be people disappointed to miss out because they're all champing at the bit to play but we've got games coming thick and fast so we're going to use the full squad right through to the end of the season."

Reds are four points away from fourth-bottom Bamber Bridge with two games in hand so survival is still in their hands.

Last weekend’s 1-0 win at Whitby Town was a big step and they will be looking to build on that with three more points against Nantwich, who need the points themselves in their bid to achieve promotion from the Evo-Stik Premier League.

"Our away form has been good but I think five of our eight games are at home so we need to pick up points there and the crowd is going to have a massive part to play in that, getting behind the lads and making life difficult for visiting teams."

n Tickets are now available for the club's end-of-season presentation evening, which will be held at the Washington Central Hotel in Workington on Friday, May 3.
