Match Preview: Tamworth (A)

The Pitmen head to the Lamb, the home of Tamworth, on Saturday looking for their first league victory at their Staffordshire rivals in 24 years.

Hednesford’s last league victory at Tamworth came on 23 November 1991, when they picked up a 3-2 victory when both sides were in the Southern League Premier division.

Since then, only an FA Cup Second Qualifying Round in September 1995 has followed, with success being few and far between.

Bernard McNally’s side will be hoping to put that stat right this weekend as they look to avenge the double league defeat they suffered last season against Andy Morrell’s side.

The Pitmen boss is once again set to be without the services of striker Marvin Robinson who misses out due to a calf injury, while Tom Thorley is also expected to be unavailable due to discomfort in his knee, unrelated to last week’s challenge, and he is currently waiting to see a specialist after having had a scan.

McNally has been boosted by the return to training of defender John Disney, who has missed the last two weeks following an injury picked up against Coleshill Town.

The game kicks-off at the usual Saturday time of 3.00pm will see the Pitmen wearing their home white and black kit.

A segregation policy will be in place for the fixture, with Hednesford fans being housed in the Meadow Street terracing behind the one goal. Fans will be able to enter that area of the ground through turnstiles 1 and 2 for the terrace and 2A for the stand.
