SETTING THE SCENE
Following Lewis Hawkins’ winner against Bradford (Park Avenue) on Wednesday, Spennymoor embark on a long trip to Brackley Town looking to take a giant leap towards the National League.
An iconic evening at The Brewery Field, which saw over 1500 supporters create a unique atmosphere, was settled by Hawkins’ curling effort fifteen minutes from time. It was a goal unbefitting of a scrappy and uneventful game, but one which continues Moors’ remarkable campaign.
Brackley Town, who beat Moors 4-1 at St James Park in October, finished one place and one point above Jason Ainsley’s side courtesy of Daniel Nti’s late goal against FC United of Manchester on the final day of the season, allowing them a week break and home advantage ahead of Sunday’s clash.
With around 250 Spennymoor fans set to descend upon the small Northamptonshire town, there is guaranteed to be a red-hot atmosphere in a game which will see one side face either Chorley or Altrincham in the final on Sunday 12thMay.
Moors were buoyed by the returning Callum Williams, James Curtis and Stephen Brogan against Avenue on Wednesday, while the sight of Mark Anderson’s name on the substitutes bench may also point to the midfielder playing some part on Sunday.
A season which began on a sunny afternoon in Chester back in August, and has seen moments which will be etched in the memories of Moors fans for years to come, will hopefully be extended by a further week with the final now within touching distance.
- Adam Boyes made his 34th appearance from the bench this season against BPA, fourteen more than any other Moors player.
- Lewis Hawkins’ goal was Spennymoor’s first shot on target on Wednesday evening. Moors had just two efforts on target in the 90 minutes.
- Spennymoor recorded their 17th clean sheet of the 2018/19 season with the 1-0 victory over BPA, and their third in a row.
- Only Stockport County (36) conceded fewer goals than Brackley (40) in the 2018/19 season.
- Brackley beat Bradford (Park Avenue) at this stage of the play-offs last season, winning after extra time courtesy of Aaron Williams’ goal after 111 minutes.
- The Saints won 47 points from a possible 63 at St James Park in the 2018/19 season. Only Darlington and Altrincham have claimed victory at Brackley’s home ground.
