It will be a first for the Pitmen this weekend as they return to Evo-Stik Northern Premier League action with their first ever trip to The Brewery Field – the home of Spennymoor Town.
You will remember that we faced Spennymoor on the opening day of the current league campaign, with us coming from behind to record a 3-1 victory.
After suffering a shock defeat to Corby Town on Monday, our hosts tomorrow sit just outside the top five in sixth spot with 42 points from their 24 games.
Manager Paul Casey was looking to get back to winning ways after having to wait almost two weeks for a fixture.
“The fans understand what we have been through over the course of the last couple of months since I have been here. We’ve had to try and build a team, for whatever reason, and this team is work in progress.
“With the players that we have brought in and the work ethic that we have got I think fans should be pleased, as let’s be fair, if we hadn’t signed players quickly when I came in we would’ve ended up with no team.
“From my point of view this team will only improve with playing more games. The spirit in the camp is really good; I just think it is down to getting a couple of wins under our belts like we did against Workington and Warrington.”
The manager is set to be without Lewis Wright (knee), while Tom Thorley (hip) and Danny Glover (sickness bug) will face late fitness tests to see if they will be involved. Lloyd Ransome is now fit again after playing in a 3-0 behind closed doors friendly victory over Redditch United on Tuesday evening.
