NL North – Weekend Fixtures: 17 August

Having made the long journey to the North-East, Hereford, under Tim Harris, face Blyth Spartans in the Vanarama National League North on Saturday.

The Bulls put the King’s Lynn performance to bed in an upbeat and committed victory over AFC Telford United on Tuesday and will be hoping for another away success at Croft Park.

Hereford did the double over Blyth last season, and will be bidding to record back-to-back wins following the dismissal of head coach Marc Richards.

The Spartans, under the former Huddersfield, Birmingham and Bury boss Lee Clark, are yet to acquire a single point this term having been beaten by Gloucester City, Alfreton and York so far.

Elsewhere, the pace-setters York are at home to Leamington, whilst second placed Guiseley will hope to gain at least a point as they travel to Boston.

Curzon Ashton hope to keep the pressure on at the top as they entertain Kidderminster Harriers who have disappointingly lost two of their opening four games.

It is somewhat of a surprise to see Gloucester City in the top six at this early stage of the new campaign, and they face an uphill task at Chester who proved to be tough opponents on home soil in the National League North last season.
