Next up: Lancaster City Venue: Rivacre Park Date: Saturday, March 26: VAUXHALL and Lancaster are probably sick of the sight of each other as this is their fourth meeting this season and the third since the turn of the year.
Their last two matches were in the FA Trophy in January with the Dolly Blues triumphing in a replay at the Giant Axe to earn a showdown with Conference neighbours Morecambe.
The big game with their rivals from across the River Lune attracted a bumper gate of 1,596 - six times their average attendance - but they were beaten 2-1.
The loss ensured that the FA Trophy still eludes Wilson as a manager. He enjoyed considerable success in the competition as a player and is one of Non-League football's most decorated bosses.
Lancaster were last week hit with a fine from the FA for failing to fulfil a fixture at home to Runcorn on March 1. The club was ordered to pay £500 for the offence and will also have to reimburse the cash-strapped Linnets' transport costs and expenses.
Traffic chaos ensured that the visitors arrived late but when they finally made it to Lancaster, the hosts' manager and several of his players were missing.
Wilson and co got stuck in a jam seven miles south of Lancaster at 6.15pm, unable to move in either direction and were unable to head home away from the now-abandoned game until 9.45pm.
At least Wilson, who lives on the Wirral, should have few problems making his way to Rivacre Park.
Last season: Won 2-1 on Saturday, February 21.
The Motormen won the game thanks to a superb opening five minutes, which produced two goals for the home side and their performance was described by Owen Brown as 'great stuff.'
Just 45 seconds were on the clock when Kevin Lynch rose unmarked in the Lancaster area to nod Vauxhall ahead from Peter Cumiskey's lofted ball from the left-hand side.
The Motormen doubled their advantage in the fifth minute as Carl Macauley slipped the ball through to Terry Fearns.
The striker's initial shot was blocked by keeper Kevin Welsby but he looped the re-bound into the net beyond defender Paul Sparrow on the goal-line.
Lancaster pulled a goal back on 71 minutes when James Hughes, who had started the season with Vauxhall, scooped the ball in from close range after Prince had beaten Dittmer to a loose ball from Tony Sullivan's cross.
