Nantwich Town face a tough clash when in-form arrive Ashton United arrive at the Weaver Stadium.

And the Dabbers will welcome back Casper Hughes into the squad after securing a loan deal for him from League Two neighbours Crewe Alex.

Hughes is a product of the famed Crewe Alexandra Academy who made his first team debut for Crewe against Stockport County in the last match of the 2010/11 season. He joins on an initial one-month loan.

Ashton have won their last five league games in impressive fashion, including a midweek 4-0 home win over Chasetown to consolidate their eighth position in the Evo-Stik Premier Division.

They sit on the same points as Nantwich and their boss Danny Johnson deservedly won the manager of the Month award.

Nantwich will be without Chris Flynn (hamstring) and Rodney Jack, but have a full squad to chose from including new loan signing Hughes.

Quinn said: “I was very pleased with the performance last week and the football we played.

“We have again worked hard during the week on some ideas we hope will help us build on this and improve further. The addition of Casper should give us more options from midfield.

“I watched Ashton in midweek against Chasetown and they are a strong side, playing with lots of confidence at the moment, so we have to be prepared for a very tough game.

“They have some quality players in Aaron Burns up front, Mark Peers in Midfield and George Melling, as well as Craig Robinson – brother of MK Dons Manager Carl – who is also playing in defence.

“But we have plenty of quality ourselves to deal with this and I am looking forward to an entertaining hard fought game.”

Kick off at the Weaver Stadium is 3pm tomorrow (Saturday March 3)
