Spennymoor Town v Curzon Ashton
Tuesday 13th September 2022, 7.45pm
National League North
The Brewery Field

In Opposition
Curzon Ashton have recovered from back-to-back defeats at the start of the new National League North campaign to move level on points with Moors in the table ahead of Tuesday’s game.

The Nash were beaten at by home newly promoted Banbury United on the opening day before then losing to Buxton seven days later.

However, three victories from their last five have more than steadied the ship at The Tameside Stadium and a 3-0 thumping of Gloucester City last time out has further boosted confidence.

Having finished mid-table in 2021/22, Adam Lakeland’s men will be hoping they can continue their promising form and push themselves into contention at the top end this time around.

One To Watch
Josh Hancock has proved an influential player for The Nash since joining the club during the summer after his departure from Altrincham.

The creative midfielder is busy in and around the penalty area and has the ability to unlock defences for his teammates and chip in with his own share of goals.

Now 32, Hancock has plenty of non-league experience having played for the likes of Witton Albion, Telford United and Nantwich Town and is also a reliable penalty kick taker.

Head To Head
Tuesday night’s meeting will be the ninth competitive encounter between the two clubs and Moors have the slight edge having won on three of the previous eight occasions.

It was Moors who won when the sides last met back in April, when a brace from Glen Taylor and a late strike from Ethan Brierley clinched a 3-0 triumph at The Tameside Stadium.
