CURZON ASHTON VS SPENNYMOOR TOWN
SATURDAY 23RD JANUARY
national league north
Spennymoor will finally play their first game of 2021 on Saturday when they travel to the Tameside Stadium to face Curzon Ashton.
A combination of weather and Covid-19 related issues have seen Moors’ first five scheduled games of the year postponed, with the 3-1 win at Gateshead on Monday 28th December the last time Tommy Miller’s side took to the field.
The two sides met in early December on what turned out to be former Manager Jason Ainsley’s final game in the dugout, with a Rob Ramshaw double guiding Moors to a vital 3-1 win at The Brewery Field.
The Nash are currently three points and four places behind Moors in a disjointed league table, with Steve Cunningham’s side just one of five sides to have played 17 fixtures in 2020/21.
They have collected ten points from a possible 24 at home this campaign, with a 3-0 win over Bradford (Park Avenue) before the new year representing their previous game on home soil.
Moors’ will kick a ball for the first time in 26 days after another unwanted and momentum stalling break, and, with a lot of focus currently magnified on matters off the field, the first whistle will signify a welcome return to action.
