Osborne is hoping to start the game.

He said: “I would love to, but I don’t think I will.

“It is a massive clash, with both teams being so close to each other in the table, and it’s a bit of six pointer.

“I am really excited for the game.

“I think we can win it I have trained with the lads twice and everyone looks sharp.

“I watched the game on Saturday against Halesowen.

“Nantwich did well and ripped them apart. It looked like [Nantwich] were the team in 9th place and Halesowen were 18th.”
