The non-league football preview


There’s plenty of  non-league football action in the Staffordshire area this weekend as we preview games  with Tamworth FC, Nantwich Town, Stafford Rangers, Kidsgrove Athletic, Leek Town and Newcastle Town.

Tamworth FC

 Tamworth face 9th placed Coalville Town at The Lamb as they look to extend their unbeaten run to five games.

The Lambs go into the game with just one defeat in 11 games and look to extend that fine run of form against the Ravens.

Coalville have already visited The Lamb Ground this season, losing 6-0 in the opening round of The Southern League Cup; however a repeat scoreline is unlikely as Coalville had a strong start to the season which saw them in second place during September but after a dip in form they now sit three points off the play-offs.

Nantwich Town

Nantwich look to continue their unbeaten run to four games as they go to mid-table Whitby Town.

The Dabbers go into the game coming off a 3-2 win against Marine AFC, which saw Will Jaaskelainen make his first appearance since returning to the club on loan from Crewe Alexandra.

With top of the table Scarborough losing, Nantwich have closed the gap to just a point and are looking to keep pressure on their title rivals with a win on Saturday.

Stafford Rangers

Stafford Rangers host 10th placed Buxton on Saturday as the Boro look to get their first league win since October.

Neil Kitching’s men look to beat Buxton for the first time since being back in the NPL as they lost both previous meetings 2-1 and last season’s 4-1 defeat.

Kidsgrove Athletic

Kidsgrove travel to Skelmersdale United as the Grove look to rediscover some sort of goalscoring form as they go into the match winless in their last four games.

The Grove have failed to score for five consecutive games, which they are hoping to put away when they travel to Volair Park this weekend.

Kidsgrove travel to struggling Skelmersdale, who only have one win and four draws this season.

Leek Town

Leek Town host struggling 18th placed Kendal Town at Harrison Park on Saturday.

The Blues look to carry on from their last league win, which was a 2-0 away win against Mossley.

Leek Town will hope to create a nice run of form as they are going into a busy December where they face six games this month including local derbies on Boxing Day against Chasetown and New Year’s Day against Newcastle Town.

Newcastle Town

Newcastle Town have the visit of Mossley at the Lyme Valley Stadium this Saturday as they look to extend their unbeaten run to three league games.

After Mossley’s defeat to The Castle’s rivals, Leek Town, they will be looking to find a response against Newcastle this Saturday.

As for The Castle they look to climb the table as they sit 15th and nine points behind their upcoming opponents.
