A tricky test awaits the Blues this afternoon at the Brewery Field – as fellow promotion contenders Spennymoor Town welcome Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley’s side.
The Blues need to bounce back after last Saturday’s home defeat to Curzon Ashton. Injuries depleting the squad, they took one point from a possible six against Guiseley and the Nash. However, two away victories since the turn of the year at FC United in the NLN and Winsford in the Senior Cup have yielded six goals scored and none conceded. Perhaps a reason to be positive.
Striker George Waring arrived yesterday afternoon following his release from Tranmere Rovers, and could come straight into the side. Scott Burton made an appearance on the bench seven days ago and moves back into contention. However the pairing of Gary Roberts and Sean McAllister have looked impressive in the last two.
Spennymoor Town sit two points and three places above the 7th placed Blues. They’ve won their last two – at home to Kidderminster and away to Darlington – both 2-1.
On the opening day of the season, these two teams played out a goalless draw. However, it was an action packed game in front of a 2000+ crowd. Anthony Dudley went closest for the Blues, striking the crossbar in the second half.
