Vanarama National League North
5 REASONS TO WATCH
MOORS FACE ALTRINCHAM

1

7TH VS 6TH IN A VITAL PLAY-OFF DUEL

The play-off race in the National League North is tight to say the least. One win could see you climb a few places, but a sole defeat could see you drop out of the top seven altogether, with a chasing pack eager to make up ground. Just two points separate Boston in 5th and Darlington in 11th, with Moors sandwiched between the pair in 7th. Altrincham endured a sloppy start to the season but have been in red hot form of late under Phil Parkinson.

The 1-2 defeat to Kettering on Saturday courtesy of a last minute winner from Josh Law means we are almost entering must win territory here. There is still plenty of time to go and lots of points will be won and lost from now until April, but this has a big game feel about it. Moors have also played two more games than tomorrow’s visitors and Boston, the two sides directly above them. Three points would up to 5th. A defeat would invite the side’s below them into the holy grail of the top seven. It’s all to play for!

CATCH OUR NEW BOYS IN ACTION AGAIN

Spennymoor had an active week in the transfer market, brining in full back’s Tyler Forbes and Lewis Butroid from AFC Fylde and Scunthorpe United respectively. Forbes joined on a permanent deal while Butroid is at The Brewery Field on a short term loan. Both made their debuts in a new look back four on Saturday, and, despite the sickening late defeat, both impressed fans and manager Jason Ainsley. The pair possess attacking qualities which are sure to get fans excited from now until the end of the season, with Butroid especially showcasing a turn of pace and skill in advanced areas.

After the Kettering game, Ainsley was full of praise for the pair: “I thought they did really well. They were tenacious and comfortable on the ball. Lewis did really well on a couple of occasion when he got right into the box and delivered some dangerous crosses.”

IF IT'S ANYTHING LIKE LAST SEASON'S GAME...

It’s not often you finish a game and you are simply speechless as to what you have just witnessed. That was the case when Moors hosted Altrincham way back in August 2018, the last time these two sides faced off at The Brewery Field. Eight goals were shared as an end to end contest finally ended 4-4. Moors led just once in a crazy game, but a late Taylor goal earned a point in the end.

In a contest which, at times, defied belief, Moors fought back on three occasions to seal their third consecutive draw and remain unbeaten this season at the start of the 2018/19 campaign. Mark Anderson, Adam Boyes, Shane Henry and Taylor grabbed the goals for Spennymoor, while Andrew White, James Jones and a second half double from James Hancock rounded off the scoring for an impressive Altrincham outfit.

Tuesday’s game has a lot to live to live up to!

CHOOSE THE RIGHT BLACK AND WHITE

Moors aren’t the only North-East club in action tomorrow as Newcastle host Rochdale in a FA Cup replay at St James Park. We firmly believe that the standard of football in the National League North is as good as anything in terms of a match day experience on and off the field, so why pay £20 to watch Newcastle’s reserves when you can pay half the price to watch a huge play-off battle at The Brewery Field.

It’s a no brainer…
