FLEETWOOD Town manager Tony Greenwood has paid tribute to Witton Albion’s consistency.
Albion lead the UniBond Premier Division by 12 points - and Fleetwood are second with four games in hand.
Greenwood said: “In any other season we would be top by for or five points so you have got to give credit to Witton.
“If we win our games in hand we’ll be joint top, though it is always better to have points in the bag.
“We must concentrate on what we need to do and not get hung up about Witton’s results, which would not do us any favours.
“We drew 0-0 with them in October and both sides were happy with a draw. We have to go to Witton in March but any talk of that being a title decider is nonsense.
“It would be wrong to rule out the other teams yet. If ourselves and Witton slip up other teams will cash in,” he said.
Meanwhile, Stevenage Borough boss Graham Westley has tipped Dino Maamria to become a top non-league manager.
Westley managed Maamria at Stevenage and Rushden and said: “If Northwich survive I will be surprised if they aren’t a op 10 side next season. Dino has a good football brain and he is good enough to get them there.”
