Fresh from a first win of the season on Saturday, Moors make the short trip North to face Gateshead for the first time in over a decade.

The reaction to Glen Taylor’s last gasp goal against Chester three days ago showcased the magnitude of the moment, with Moors now hoping that can be the springboard for the rest of the season.

It was a frustrating afternoon in truth, even after Danny Livesey was shown a controversial second yellow card shortly before the interval. Spennymoor were given a helping hand via two goalkeeping errors by Russ Griffiths, but it’s the slice of luck which has been in short supply during the first month of the campaign.

Gateshead come in to tonight’s game on the back of a terrific victory of their own. A 2-0 home win over the much fancied Brackley Town sent The Heed once place above The Saints to 8th in the division.

With five draws this season Gateshead are the stalemate specialists so far, with a watertight defence proving their strength following demotion from the National League in the summer.


OPPOSITION

It’s fair to say it’s been an eventful 2019 for The Heed. Following the departure of Steve Watson to York City in January, Gateshead’s unlikely play-off push in a highly competitive National League derailed. A 17th place finish following a nine point deduction was the lead of their worries when the future of the club was thrown into serious doubt following the actions of Joseph Cala and Dr Ranjan Varghese.

This ultimately resulted in Gateshead being demoted to the National League North. Following a supporter-led takeover, led by Neil Pinkerton and Trevor Clark, plus a solid start to the season, optimism has replaced despair. Mike Williamson and former Moors defender Ian Watson occupy the dugout and have overseen just one defeat in The Heed’s first eight games in 2019/20.

Michael Nelson netted in the 2-0 win over Brackley on Saturday.
