We turn our attentions to the midweek action at The Brewery Field with a comprehensive preview of our National League North meeting with Hereford.
Spennymoor Town v Hereford
Tuesday 31st January 2023, 7.45pm
National League North
The Brewery Field
Just like Moors, Hereford’s are aiming to bounce back from a weekend 3-2 defeat after The Bulls were left empty-handed following a dramatic encounter with Banbury United.
Josh Gowling’s side have put together a more encouraging run of form in recent weeks having won three of their last five National League North outings.
Hereford are a dangerous side on their travels and they have picked up as many wins on the road this season as they have on their own patch.
After finishing in midtable last term, Bulls fans are hoping there is still time for them to mount a drive for the play-off positions during the closing months of the campaign.
One To Watch
Ryan Lloyd has become a key player for Hereford since joining the club in October 2020 following his departure from League One outfit Port Vale.
The assured midfielder proved himself to be a dependable and consistent performer during his time at Edgar Street and a player who simply goes about his business with the minimum of fuss.
He can make things tick for The Bulls sitting just in front of the back four and Moors will have to ensure they don’t let him dictate things at The Brewery Field tonight.
Head To Head
Tonight’s game will be the eighth time the two clubs have collided in competitive action over the years, with the last meeting producing a dramatic 3-3 draw on the opening day of the season at Edgar Street.
Moors did the National League North double over The Bulls last term and have won four of the previous seven encounters between the teams.
On The Whistle
James Westgate will be the man in the middle for this evening’s action at The Brewery Field, and he will be assisted by Givi Todua and Kieran Downey.
