Buxton v Spennymoor Town
National League North
Saturday 23rd September 2023, 3pm
Tarmac Silverlands Stadium
Buxton arrive into Saturday’s game against Moors in good form, having won three of their last four in National League North to move up to sixth in the table ahead of the weekend.
The Bucks endured a fairly slow start to the new campaign, picking up just two points from their first four outings – but they seem to have clicked into gear in recent weeks.
Like Moors, they will be approaching the weekend keen to bounce back from FA Cup disappointment with Buxton begin knocked out at the hands of Macclesfield on Saturday.
A double from Sam Osborne was enough to consign Moors to a 2-1 defeat during their last visit to Buxton back in April a The Bucks completed a league double after their 1-0 victory at The Brewery Field last October.
Moors have a number of injury problems to contend with ahead of the weekend and some selection decisions may have to be left late by Interim Manager Lewis Dickman.
Mark Anderson (ankle), Michael Ledger (hamstring) Lebrun Mbeka (hip) and Ben Pollock (knee) all missed Tuesday’s FA Cup replay at Marine.
Harry Warner will be the man in the middle for Saturday’s game at Silverlands Stadium, and he will be assisted by Joshua Howell and Kieran Chell.
Moors fans will be able to buy their tickets direct on the turnstiles ahead of kick-off at Buxton on Saturday, with cash or card payments being accepted.
