Match Preview: Spennymoor Town vs Bradford (Park Avenue)

posted in: First Team News, News | 0

Saturday’s impressive hard-fought win over Ashton United mean Mark Bower’s side made it five games unbeaten as their impressive turnaround from the beginning of the year continued.

Next up is a trip up north to face a very good Spennymoor Town side in what promises to be a crunch promotion clash as both sides look to flex their promotion-contending credentials.

Goals from Conor Branson and Jamie Spencer secured a third win in five games for Bradford, with Spennymoor missing a game week due to their postponement against Bradford’s Yorkshire rivals, Guiseley.

The last game Tuesday’s hosts did play was against Southport, where they secured a point after going one-nil down with a late penalty from the league’s top goalscorer, Glen Taylor.

Spennymoor’s season has been an impressive one. They boast the third best defence in the league, as well as being the league’s second highest goalscorers and are aiming to stay in touch with Chorley and Stockport County above them.

A win could see Bradford go as high as joint-third, but despite the points tally, Spennymoor’s goal difference will help them stay above Bower’s side whatever the result on Tuesday night.

The reverse fixture came early in the season during mid-August and saw Avenue come out on top. Ben McKenna’s 26th minute strike saw Bradford secure an impressive 1-0 win.
