Ravens currently unbeaten in their last three outings

FC Isle of Man will be looking to continue their recent good form when they host Northwich Victoria in the NWCFL Premier Division tomorrow evening (5 November).

The Ravens are on a run of three games unbeaten in all competitions, winning two and drawing one.

Their last outing saw them stage a stunning comeback to earn a late 3-2 win against Congleton Town on Manx soil last Saturday (29 October).

FC Isle of Man currently sit 16th in the league standings on 17 points.

A win for them on Saturday could lift them up two places depending on results around them.

However, the Manx side's visitors to The Bowl tomorrow, Northwich Victoria, have enjoyed a strong campaign in the league so far.

Despite a 2-0 defeat at home in midweek to Kendal Town, 'The Vics' sit sixth in the table and twelve points better off than FC Isle of Man having played two games less.

The Cheshire side are looking to recapture some form after two wins in their last six in all competitions, compared to five straight victories prior to that.

In the league, they've only lost four times so far this campaign - only the top three of Vauxhall Motors, Wythenshawe Town and AFC Liverpool have been defeated fewer times.

FC Isle of Man vs Northwich Victoria takes place at The Bowl this Saturday (5 November), kicking-off at 6pm.

Manx Radio will be providing full live match commentary on our AM1368 and Digitial platforms.
