For the first time in over five years our paths cross those of Nuneaton Town in a league fixture. The last game against Boro came during the 2009/10 season when both sides were battling for a play-off spot in the Southern Premier League.
Fast forward half a decade and for the second home game in succession we face a side that have recently dropped out of the top tier of non-league football, something which manager Bernard McNally is all too aware of:
“It is a big game for us and we know that it will be tough, we are relishing it and the players at the moment are doing well and are confident that we can get the right result on Saturday.”
Like last weekend, McNally is set to be without defender John Disney who is still struggling with an ankle injury while Marvin Robinson is also expected to be out for another week with a calf problem.
The manager will be able to call upon the services of goalkeeper Dan Crane though, who returned to the club this week, while he is set to be joined by a second new face with paperwork set to be completed today.
The game will see the usual segregation policy being applied at Keys Park with visiting supporters being allocated the seated Hednesford End of the ground as well as the appropriate terracing to either side.
We request that Nuneaton Town supporters enter the ground through Turnstiles 2A and 2B.
Hednesford Town supporters will be housed in the Main Stand, Heath Hayes End and Wimblebury Terrace. Supporters will be able to enter the ground through Turnstiles 3A, 3B (Pass Gate), 4A, 4B and 4C.
With the match being segregated, a single tier price structure will apply of £13.00 Adults and £8.00 Concessions, however, the ‘Adult/Child and Family Terrace Ticket’ prices will still apply for both sets of supporters.
Nuneaton supporters will have access to Strikers Bar while home fans will have the Chase Suite, both of which are situated up the stairways at either end of the Main Stand.
