SETTING THE SCENE

Spennymoor make their first trip to Liberty Way since November 2017 aiming to record a fifth consecutive league victory.

Moors haven’t played a National League North fixture in February due to FA Trophy commitments and the postponement of last Saturday’s clash with Bradford (Park Avenue) but remain in third position with 45 points still to play for this season.

Results went in Moors’ favour last weekend, with Chorley, Stockport and AFC Telford United all dropping points, but with games in hand on the teams around them, Jason Ainsley will know his side will need to capitalise.

Nuneaton have suffered a traumatic week with owner Nick Hawkins leaving the club after three months at the helm, stating that the “future of the club would be best served in the hands of people from Nuneaton.”

On the pitch, it’s been a tough season at Liberty Way, with Borough currently 16 points from safety, recording three wins from 29 games and conceding 66 goals at an average of 2.28 goals per game.

Moors won the reverse fixture 3-1 at The Brewery Field back in September thanks to goals from Glen Taylor, Rob Ramshaw and Andrew Johnson. The game was memorable for a crazy opening in which both sides were awarded a penalty within the first five minutes of the game.

STATS CENTRE

  • Spennymoor have collected maximum points from games against the current bottom three sides so far this season, scoring 13 times and conceding just twice.
  • Nuneaton boast the worst home record this season, collecting just six points from a possible 45 at Liberty Way this season. Their sole win this campaign came against FC United of Manchester on 29th September.
  • Only Stockport County can boast a better record than Moors over the last 20 National League North games. Moors have picked up 41 points from a possible 60, with The Hatters collecting two points more in the same period.
  • Glen Taylor has scored 24 goals in all competitions this season, only four less than Nuneaton have scored in the league in 2018/19.
  • Moors won by a single goal on their previous visit to Nuneaton, with Taylor scoring late to earn Spennymoor the three points in November 2017.

LAST TIME WE MET

THE OPPOSITION

It’s not an easy time to be a Nuneaton fan. Marooned at the bottom of the division and with a restricted budget, Nuneaton are in serious danger of relegation as the club tries to stay afloat. In a statement released this week following the departure of owner Nick Hawkins, the club said:

“The shares in Borough Leisure Ltd, the parent company of the club, will be held in trust by manager Jimmy Ginnelly until new shareholders can be found.

“The club is completing a prospectus for interested parties and will be aiming to find 10 backers, who will take 10 per cent shares each for a rolling payment of £10,000 each season.

“The finer details will be available, upon request, to all interested parties.

Everyone at Spennymoor Town Football Club is saddened with the situation at Liberty Way and the club sends our support and best wishes.

In terms of the fixture on Saturday, Nuneaton come into the game having picked up respectable draws at Southport and Hereford in the last five, but you have to go back to early December for their last victory – a 2-1 win at Darlington. A damaging 0-1 home loss to Ashton United two weeks ago was a blow to their survival prospects, but with 39 points still to play for this season, Nuneaton will be hopeful of a late revival.

ONE TO WATCH | RYAN EDMUNDS

Edmunds has recorded three goals and one assist in his last seven games for Nuneaton and is at the heart of their side.
