Bradford  (Park Avenue) head into Tuesday’s clash with Leamington looking to extend their unbeaten run having salvaged a draw at home to Curzon Ashton on Saturday afternoon.

Jake Beesley’s consecutive brace meant that Mark Bower’s side took a point, although they could have had all three, with two Macaulay Langstaff strikes being disallowed for offside, the latter in the final minute.

Our midweek visitors have lost their last three fixtures and are six points ahead of Ashton United, who currently occupy the final relegation place in the National League North.

Bower could have the services of Oli Johnson available to him, who has missed the last few games with injury, while Connor Branson completed 72 minutes on his return from illness.

Despite their league struggles, Leamington have reached the semi-final of the Birmingham Senior Cup, in which they knocked out a young West Bromwich Albion side.

The game provides an opportunity for Avenue to close the gap on their rivals above, with the Yorkshire side having a game in hand on those around them.

The reverse fixture between the two sides was a six-goal thriller. Goals from Johnson, and skipper Shane Killock not enough to take anything from the game.
