Spennymoor Preview

After a weekend with no game, Town are back in action on Saturday as we take on Spennymoor Town at Brewery Field.



The Moors earned promotion from the NPL Premier Division via the playoffs last season and have so far made a fantastic start to life at their highest ever level; sitting fourth in The National League North.

Jason Ainsley has been in charge at Brewery Field for over ten years now and goes into Saturday’s game six points behind Town, following a run of seven points from their last three games.

Saturday’s match winner at Nuneaton Glen Taylor will pose the biggest threat to Town’s defence having netted nine league goals already this campaign.

Ainsley has seen his side win four out of eight on home soil this season, but lose three of the last five, while Town’s away form has been remarkable and, after victory at The Impact Arena, now stretches to seven consecutive wins.

Victory over Alfreton saw Town remain top of the league, but having no game since has seen Simon Weaver’s side slip to four points adrift of league leaders Salford City, albeit with a game in hand.

Town have lost just one of their last 18 National League North fixtures, and will be hoping to extend that record coming up against Spennymoor for the first time since the club was formed as Spennymoor Town in 2005.

New signing Mark Beck is not quite ready for action, but having served his suspension on Tuesday night, Joe Leesley will be available for selection after his red card at Alfreton.
