Moors face AFC Telford United on Saturday in the sixth league meeting between the sides searching for their first win over The Bucks.
A 2-2 draw earlier in the season at least ended a run of seven consecutive defeats in all competitions against Telford, but three points would not only end a rotten sequence, it would also extend a superb run which has seen Moors rise to the top of the form chart.
A convincing 5-0 win over Alfreton last weekend was the latest instalment in a series of brilliant results, with February once again proving a fruitful month following a similar pattern in 2018/19.
Telford’s inconsistency and tendency to leak goals has dented their play-off ambitions, but Gavin Cowan’s side still boast several game changers in their squad, something which manager Jason Ainsley will be well aware of.
Gateshead’s 3-0 win over Boston on Tuesday evening has well and truly thrown the cat amongst the pigeons, with the gap now down to five points between The Pilgrims in 3rd and Moors in 8th.
Ainsley has discussed the importance of finishing as high as possible to secure a home tie in the play-offs at the end of the season, and with the top two of York and King’s Lynn seemingly out of sight, Moors are in prime form to make a late push for a knockout tie at The Brewery Field.
Jason Kennedy will play the final game of his loan spell and return to Hartlepool after the clash with Telford, with the midfielder receiving high praise after a run of industrious and noteworthy performances.
