Moors make their second trip to The Phillips 66 Community Stadium in the space of three weeks as they look to avenge their FA Trophy defeat at the hands of Leamington.
Jason Ainsley’s squad have been forced to bide their time following a rare week Saturday off last weekend. With scheduled opponents Altrincham in FA Cup action at Portsmouth, the players kept themselves busy with an open training session at The Brewery Field.
Moors then faced Sunderland Under 23s in a friendly on Tuesday evening, and, despite a heavy 5-0 defeat, it allowed players to get minutes and maintain their match sharpness. A hat-trick from Lee Connelly helped the young Black Cats to a comprehensive victory in front of a crowd of 405.
Leamington head into the clash on the back of a comfortable 3-0 victory over Darlington on Tuesday night, building on a creditable 2-2 draw against Guiseley. Combined with the 2-1 win over Moors in the Trophy and a 3-0 at Bradford (Park Avenue) a week earlier, The Brakes are in good form heading into the festive period.
It seems an eternity since Spennymoor were in National League North action. That 2-2 draw at Telford consolidated Moors’ slot in the top seven, and they head into Saturday’s game in sixth place, 11 points off league leaders King’s Lynn Town.
