Match Preview: AFC Telford (A)

The Pitmen have an immediate chance to put Saturday’s disappointment of losing to Harrogate Town behind them as they take on AFC Telford United this evening.

After a Boxing Day victory over the Bucks, the Pitmen look to secure their first league double this season when they head to the New Bucks Head.

Hednesford Town supporters will be hoping the improvement in results continues at a ground that has seen mixed fortunes for the Pitmen.

Since being rebuilt in the early 2000’s we have picked up just one victory in four games played, this being a memorable FA Cup triumph in September 2013. Our last match at the New Bucks Head came two years ago when on the opening day of 2014 the Pitmen lost 5-3.

After tasting victory against the same opponents, manager Frank Sinclair is hoping for a reaction from his side this evening:

“The good thing for us is that this game comes quickly after Saturday. It gives the players a chance to go out there and put that result behind them.

“The minimum I ask of the players is 100%. If we don’t play well and get something out of it then I will take it.”

The manager is set to hand Jack Truelove a debut after he signed from Oldham Athletic on Monday with the only absentee for the fixture being Andy Todd who is recovering after breaking his arm last week.

The Pitmen will be wearing their away strip for the game at the New Bucks Head.
