Moors face fellow play-off contenders Altrincham less than a month after a memorable meeting at The Brewery Field, with both sides possessing momentum after a strong month of results.
Spennymoor will begin the afternoon two points behind The Robins in 7th place, and know a win would see them leapfrog a side who’s only defeat at home this campaign arrived on the first day of the season in August against York City.
The two teams have scored a combined total of 116 goals in the league this season, both netting 58 times, however, Moors have only netted on 17 occasions away from The Brewery Field, where a total of three wins from 15 has prevented a title challenge.
The clash will mark Altrincham’s first home game in a month, with the 3-2 defeat against Moors proceeding wins at Blyth and Hereford. A potentially season defining three weeks lies on the immediate horizon for Phil Parkinson’s side, with matches against York and Chester to follow.
A 3-3 draw with AFC Telford United may not have been a welcome scoreline before a ball was kicked at The Brewery Field last weekend, but in the circumstances, a point was welcomed like a win courtesy of Tyler Forbes’ last gasp strike.
If ever a performance summed up Spennymoor’s gutsy mentality, it was the second half showing against a side who profited from James Curtis’ controversial dismissal ten minutes before the interval.
