Pre-Match Programme: AFC Telford United

Mark Bower’s play-off chasing Bradford (Park Avenue) side will look to strengthen their grip on a play-off place when AFC Telford United make the trip up to West Yorkshire tomorrow night.

Telford currently occupy the final play-off place and should Bradford secure all three points there will be even more daylight between Avenue and the chasing pack who are currently looking to get into the top seven.

Saturday’s draw away at Southport ensured Bower and his team made it seven games unbeaten and on Tuesday they will be looking to extend that impressive run.

Telford have a game in hand on Avenue, and will do so after Tuesday night’s fixture, as well as having two games in hand on those directly below them.

In their last five games, Telford have two wins, two losses and a draw. They have conceded the same amount of goals this season, and have scored ten less.

Telford return to National League North action after a seventeen day break, with the FA Trophy proving a distraction from league affairs, as they valiantly lost a two-legged tie to National League high-flyers, Leyton Orient.

In the reverse fixture, Bradford won 2-0 courtesy of goals by Lewis Knight and Jamie Spencer, which kept Avenue at the top of the league at the time of the fixture.

Knowing The Opposition

Matthew Barnes-Homer

Following three years in the youth system at Wolves, Dudley-born Barnes-Homer had spells in the USA before returning to the UK, where he established himself as a goalscorer par excellence, most notably with Kidderminster Harriers in 2009. That earned him a move to Luton Town for a reputed £75,000 fee, and he scored 19 goals in his debut season. From there he has been a nomadic figure, representing clubs the length and breadth of Britain as well as in Sweden and back in the USA, scoring goals along the way. He signed for the Bucks in June 2017, and has also represented England ‘C’. Combines playing with a coaching role at the Bucks. 

Brandon Daniels

Fleet-footed wide player Daniels was announced as a Buck on New Year’s Day 2019, on a deal until the end of the 2018/19 season. A native of Stoke-on-Trent, he began his career at Crewe Alexandra but dropped into non-league with spells at Chester, Gateshead and Tamworth. He established his reputation in the semi-pro game with an outstanding 2016/16 season with Harrogate Town, where his 22 goals earned him a move to big spending AFC Fylde. He helped the Coasters to promotion before joining Alfreton Town for the 2017/18 season, and his performances there earned him a six-month deal at Port Vale, spending time on loan at Altrincham and then the Bucks. 

The Horsfall College of Sport will be holding a trial/open day for their 2019/20 Scholarship Programme at the end of March.

Students currently in years 11 and 12 who are interested in a career in football are invited to attend the trial/open day which will take place at the Huddersfield Town Academy on Wednesday the 27th of March.
