Preview: Moors v Leamington

We turn our attention to Tuesday evening’s action with a full and in-depth preview of Leamington’s National League North trip to The Brewery Field.

Spennymoor Town v Leamington
Tuesday 21st March 2023, 7.45pm
National League North
The Brewery Field

In Opposition
Leamington arrive at The Brewery Field this evening sitting 20th in the National League North table and keen to add further distance between themselves and the bottom four.

The Brakes breathed new life into their push for safety with brilliant back-to-back wins over Curzon Ashton and Brackley Town at the beginning of the month.

However, just two points from their last three games means they still have work to do and they will be keen to register a strong performance when they land in County Durham tonight.

Paul Holleran’s men started the second in encouraging fashion and were up challenging near the top in the early stages so the experienced boss will be hoping to recapture some of that form during the run-in to ensure they don’t run into danger.

One To Watch
Dan Turner will be a key player for Leamington as they look to drive clear of any trouble at the base of the National League North table during the next few weeks.

The front man netted 18 times last term during his first full season in Brakes colours and he’s stormed into double figures again this time around.

The former Port Vale striker will hope to hit his best form between now and the end of the campaign and Moors defender will need to stay focused to keep him quiet tonight.

Head To Head
Leamington will be aiming for a little revenge at The Brewery Field tonight after Jude Oyibo’s goal was enough to see Moors collect all three points when the sides met earlier in the season.

Indeed, Moors have run out 1-0 winners on the last two occasions the two teams have played each other – Oyibo also scoring the only goal on The Brakes’ last trip to The Brewery Field last April.

On The Whistle
James Bancroft will be in charge of this evening’s game against Leamington at The Brewery Field, and he will be assisted by Kirk Freeth and Stephen Birkett.
