With the Bucks returing to National League North action tomorrow, Jamie Morris looks ahead to three huge games for Telford in the next seven days.
Five things to look forward to ahead of this weeks triple header
The Bucks defensive improvement
No doubt since the start of the year the amount of goals conceded have been much lower than earlier in the compaign. This summed up by three clean sheets over the festive period which helped the Bucks go on a four match unbeaten streak. Although the last two matches have ended in defeat the Bucks looked fairly strong willed against promotion chasing Brackley Town and York City.
All to play for
When there are three games in a week usually pattens can emerge. Particularly as there are so many matches in such a short space of time, then this can push a season back on track or be the start of a positive run which could be decisive in the end of season standings. The Bucks begin the busy period away to Farsley Celtic tomorrow afternoon, before welcoming Blyth Spartans on Tuesday to the New Bucks Head and Altrincham a week on Saturday (1st February)
Two home games in a week
The rearranged match against Blyth Spartans will take place on Tuesday 28th January before Altrincham make the trip to Wellington next Saturday. This may give the Bucks the insensitive to push on and start a run of form that may see them contest for the places higher in the League.

First win of the new calendar year on its way
The Bucks may have found themselves unlucky in recent weeks with spirited performances coming against top sides alongside a draw to Alfreton, so at some point a victory is due. The Bucks seem to relish the opportunity to play the better sides and just like Chester they will go to Farsley and make life difficult and maybe just come away with three points.
Stenson agrees to stay until the end of the season
In recent weeks Matt Stenson has been in amongst the goals and last got the winner in the game against Gloucester as well as playing the role of the leading striker up top of late. So it will be welcome news that the on loan Solihull forward will be here until the end of the season and if the Bucks are to achieve their goals then he could be a key part of that.
