The Bucks are after Moor success this weekend

AFC Telford United vs Spennymoor Town

Vanarama National League North

Saturday 5th January 2019, 3pm kick off

Spennymoor Town are the first visitors to the New Bucks Head in 2019 in what should be a captivating game this weekend.

Town made a slow start to the current campaign and didn't win in their first five fixtures. But following the Bucks' 3-2 win at The Brewery Field in August, the Moors have flown up the table and now sit 5th two points and one place behind the Bucks - although Town do have two games in hand.

And it should be no surprise that Spennymoor are flying high. The Moors have the division's 4th-best defence and 2nd-best attack, and in Glenn Taylor, they boast the league's top scorer.

Jason Ainsley's men have been here before though. Last season Spennymoor seemed odds on for a playoff place, only to ultimately miss out on goal difference after a disastrous end to the campaign. A rash of postponements, in addition to their run to the FA Trophy quarter finals, meant the Moors had a mountainous fixture backlog that put paid to their hopes of promotion.

Telford picked up a full nine points from the three festive fixtures and have won three games in a row against Spennymoor, including a 3-2 at the New Bucks Head last season. Cowan and the Bucks faithful will be in eager for all three points again this time around.
