Hednesford Town prepare to return to Keys Park tomorrow afternoon when Mickleover Sports visit us.
Our visitors on Saturday have endured somewhat of a mixed season so far, currently finding themselves fourth from bottom with 17 points from their 17 games played. Their main problem comes in the fact that they have only achieved one league victory away from home this season.
This game will complete our fixtures for this campaign with Sports, with them having defeated us 1-0 back in September.
Despite their poor away record manager Rob Smith knows that his side will be in for another test tomorrow afternoon:
“Games with Mickleover have always been keenly contested, as was seen when we went down to a one goal defeat at their place earlier in the season, but hopefully we can get the right result for us on Saturday.
“The season continues to take the same vein for us right now, we look like we are going to get on an unbeaten run but then shoot ourselves in the foot and suffer defeat, as happened at Hyde last Saturday. Fingers crossed we can put that right this weekend.”
The Pitmen go into the game still missing the services of midfielder Matt Dodd and striker Lewis Archer – who has been struggling with an injury picked up in recent weeks, while Reece King is now out suspended following his red card last weekend.
The manager’s options have been depleted further this week with Callum Coyle and Dan Sweeney both returning to Solihull Moors.
Smith will have goalkeeper Josef Bursik back in contention after he returned from England U19 duty. Bursik, on-loan from Stoke City until January, played in all three England matches against Moldova, Iceland and Turkey.
The game kicks-off at the usual weekend time of 3pm and we look forward to your support at Keys Park as we look to gain another victory on our own pitch.
