The Blues visit the Tameside Stadium for the second time this season to face Curzon Ashton.
For Steve Watson’s side it is a first game in 14 days. They couldn’t turn their dominance into goals as Bradford (PA) ran out 1-0 winners on 8th January, while last Saturday’s scheduled National League North clash was postponed at home to Brackley Town.
In that time a further two players have arrived at the club in the form of Marcus Dackers from Salford City and Okera Simmonds, both attacking options coming into this match.
Curzon were beaten 3-0 at Kettering Town last weekend, and sit in ninth, just one point outside the play-off places. Despite being seven places above the Blues, a victory for the Seals this weekend would cut the gap to their hosts to just a single point.
Adam Lakeland’s side won in this fixture in the FA Trophy back in November. Charlie Jolley had given us a half time lead, but second half strikes from Jack McKay and Adam Thomas saw the Nash advance.
Kick off on Saturday afternoon is 3pm.
