We turn our attentions to the Easter Monday action with a full and in-depth preview of Moors’ National League North trip to The Tameside Stadium.

Curzon Ashton v Spennymoor Town
Monday 10th April 2023, 3pm
National League North
The Tameside Stadium

In Opposition
Curzon Ashton come into Easter Monday’s fixture against Moors in solid form having won four of their last six games, including an eye-catching 1-0 triumph at Scarborough Athletic on Good Friday.

The Nash finished in the bottom half last term but have already surpassed that points total and will hope victory over Moors can keep alive their hopes of nudging into the top seven.

They currently lie 11th in the table, a point ahead of Moors and six shy of the play-off positions but if they can maintain their current momentum then they could yet sneak into contention.

One To Watch
Jimmy Spencer joined Curzon Ashton at the beginning of February when the club agreed to pay an undisclosed fee to Farsley Celtic for his services.

The 31-year-old front man has already begun to repay his new employers, striking the winner on his debut against Alfreton Town and hitting the net on a further three occasions since.

A product of the Huddersfield Town Academy, Spencer went on to play for the likes of Notts County, Cambridge United and Plymouth Argyle and had spent the last five years with Farsley.

Head To Head
Monday’s game will be the tenth competitive meeting between the clubs and Moors have a slight edge historically having won three of the previous nine encounters.

Four of the past meetings have ended all-square, including when Curzon Ashton made the trip to The Brewery Field back in September when the game was goalless.

However, Moors enjoyed a 3-0 win on their last visit to The Tameside a little over a year ago when Glen Taylor scored a couple and Ethan Brierley was also on target.

On The Whistle
Dale Baines will be the man in the middle for Moors’ trip to The Tameside Stadium and he will be assisted by Joe Moss and Matthew Langdon.

Moors fans can buy their tickets on the turnstiles prior to kick-off at The Tameside Stadium, where they can take cash or card payments.
