Hednesford Town will be hoping that their first home game of April can bring with it a change in fortunes as they continue to search for the first victory at Keys Park in 2016 when Tamworth visit on Saturday.
After seeing their last home game postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at Keys Park the Pitmen have faced an increased absence from home – with the last home fixture seeing Frank Sinclair’s side beaten by two cruel stoppage time goals against Stockport County.
Earlier in the season the Pitmen suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat at the Lamb, with Tamworth having held the upper hand in the league over the course of the last two seasons.
This game will also see the return to Keys Park of two familiar faces with Elliott Durrell and Ross Dyer both set to line up for Tamworth on Saturday.
Manager Sinclair was hoping that a good week in training would yield dividends come the weekend. He said:
“It is my job to pick up the players and go again this weekend against a very good Tamworth side as we look to try and get something again.
“There are no easy games when you are down there towards the bottom of the league. The longer it takes to get three points the longer it takes to get that belief.
“I have to pick the lads up again and get us going and work on what I have to do in trying to get us winning a football match.”
Andy Todd will once again be missing for the Pitmen while Tom Thorley is expecting to be out for the rest of the season due to an ongoing injury problem.
The game against Tamworth, which kicks off at 3pm, will be segregated with visiting supporters being housed in the Hednesford End of the ground and entering the ground through turnstiles 2A and 2B.
Home supporters will be housed in the rest of the stadium with entrance available through turnstiles 3A, 3B, 4A, 4B, 4C
Both sets of supporters will have access to a bar before and after the game while there will also be a bag search in operation as fans enter Keys Park.
