Preview: Moors v Peterborough Sports

We turn our attentions to the weekend’s action with a full and in-depth preview of Peterborough Sports’ National League North visit to The Brewery Field.

Spennymoor Town v Peterborough Sports
National League North
Saturday 3rd February 2024, 3pm
The Brewery Field

The Opposition
Peterborough Sports have become a stubborn proposition under the watch of joint managers Michael Gash and Luke Steele over the last 12 months.

The Turbines have tasted defeat just three times in their last 12 outings and that run of sold form has helped them move up towards the middle part of the National League North table.

Promoted to this level in 2022, Sports finished in a creditable 14th place last term and there is optimism among supporters they can yet do even better this time around.

Their progress was interrupted by a 1-0 loss to Scunthorpe United last weekend, as former boss Jimmy Dean enjoyed victory on his first return since leaving for The Iron last February.

Previous Meeting
Moors took all three points when the sides met at Lincoln Road back in the opening month of the campaign when goals from Danny Greenfield and Will Harris secured a 2-0 victory.

Team News
Evan Khouri and Mikael Ndjoli will go straight into contention to make their debuts for Moors after they joined the club on loan from Grimsby Town and Hartlepool United respectively this week.

However, front man Glen Taylor will not be in contention as he continues to recover from a knee injury.

Match Officials
Richard Holmes will be the man in the middle for Saturday’s game against Peterborough Sports, and he will be assisted by Jonathan Gill and Paul Mosley.

Home and away fans are encouraged to buy their tickets online in advance where possible, but cash and card turnstiles will also be in operation ahead of kick-off on the day.
