Lancaster City assistant boss Trevor Sinclair will have a different view when he returns to Cantilever Park for the second time this season tomorrow.

Sinclair was a pundit when Warrington Town shocked League Two outfit Exeter in the first round of the FA Cup back in November.

Now the former England winger will be in the dugout as NPL First Division North outfit Lancaster look to make it five wins out of five in 2015.

Sinclair said: “It was a fantastic run for them economically and to put them on the map.

“It was my first time visiting there and I was fortunate enough to see the stadium packed out before a big live TV game.

“They did a marvellous job with it and it means they’ve got plenty of games in hand in the league.

“It’ll be a bit strange going back there when it’s empty but we’re going there to do a job.”

The latest win in City’s fine run was 1-0 over Ossett Albion on Saturday meaning all four in the recent upturn in fortunes have come by a single goal.

Sinclair said: “It was great to see how the lads stuck to the task again defensively.

“The lads didn’t let each other down and that’s a testament to the team starting from the front.

“With the talent we’ve got up front we’re always going to create chances and if we carry on clean sheets we’re going to win games.”

The perfect start to 2014 has seen City build up real momentum ahead of the trip to face Shaun Reid’s Yellows who despite their FA Cup heroics sit two places below 13th-place City at 15th.

Warrington have a couple of games in hand and could leapfrog Darren Peacock’s City side with a victory tomorrow.

The Wire are also building up a head of steam themselves and are unbeaten in five games.

Sinclair said: “The lads have bought into things.

“Before Christmas we were conceding goals with individual errors and taking risks in the wrong areas.

“That’s not about being a good about player that’s just having the right mentality and we’ve cut those out this year.

“Momentum is huge, confidence is huge and the belief in the way we’re trying to play is really high.

“Long may it continue.”

Lancaster City found out on Wednesday that they will travel to NPL First Division North rivals Farsley in the quarter-finals of the Doodson Sport Cup.

The tie will be played on Tuesday, February 17.
