SETTING THE SCENE
Moors have the chance to move up to third in the National League North as they host a goal-shy Guiseley side at The Brewery Field.
The Lions, currently six points above the relegation zone with six games to play, could all but secure their survival with victory tonight, but the game has a must win look to it for Jason Ainsley and his Spennymoor squad after a forgettable March.
Moors were winless in their six games last month, losing four times against Stockport, Kidderminster, Bradford (Park Avenue) and Hereford, but attention must now shift to the final six games of the campaign.
Guiseley are the division’s draw specialists having recorded 16 stalemates this season, three more than any other side, with the most recent of them coming in the 1-1 draw with York on Saturday.
Goals have proven a problem for The Lions as only the bottom two sides in the league, Ashton and Nuneaton, have scored fewer, but Moors head into the fixture having netted just three times in their previous six matches.
- Guiseley have recorded just three away wins this season, the joint lowest along with Nuneaton.
- Moors are currently on their longest winless run of the season (6). They previously drew three and lost two in the first five games of the season.
- Spennymoor are two points away from equalling their overall total from the 2017/18 season.
- Only Ashton have a worse record than Moors over the last five games.
- Moors (3) and Guiseley (2) have scored just five goals between them in their last five games respectively.
- Only Chester (15) have scored fewer goals away from home than Guiseley this season (17).
LAST TIME WE MET
We got the views of Guiseley media man, Adam Bridson, to get the latest news and thoughts in and around the club.
Buy our match day programme to read the full interview with Adam!
How would you evaluate your season so far?
“I think we got off to a good start and had an excellent run in the Emirates FA Cup. Unfortunately, results have tailed off lately but after a big overhaul in the summer in terms of playing staff and a new management team hopefully we can secure survival.”
Which players have impressed you this season and who should we look out for?
“Cliff Moyo has had an excellent season at right back and has been solid for us. Then you have Will Hatfield who has been with us for a few years now alongside Alex Purver who are key to us winning battles in midfield and creating chances for the side.”
Would you describe the 1-0 win over Curzon Ashton as a season defining moment? Lose that one and you could be dragged into the scrap with FC United and Ashton at the bottom?
“It could well be just that, the win on Tuesday night was massive for us and hopefully gives us some confidence going into future fixtures, the atmosphere when we scored was great and it was nice to see smiles on people’s faces again.”
What are your memories of playing against Spennymoor Town?
“Before this season I had not seen us play against Spennymoor Town but our game in November was entertaining and I felt we were unlucky not to get the three points that day. Spennymoor are a club on the rise who have been pulling in the right direction for some time now, so we have a tough game ahead of us.”
