NL North – Weekend Fixtures: 24 August

Having made two long weekend journeys Hereford, under Tim Harris, now face Brackley Town at Edgar Street on Saturday.

Back-to-back victories have kept the Bulls towards the top of the table, but Brackley have proved to be very difficult opponents in the past.

York City visit Spennymoor with the hosts finally able to open the renovated Brewery Field stadium following summer work to the pitch, stand and facilities.

Spennymoor quickly need an upturn in fortunes as they are languishing 3rd bottom but could provide a stern test for the early season leaders.

Any slip up by York will be eagerly pounced upon by the chasing pack. Guiseley will be hoping for a return to top spot, but will have to overcome Alfreton to do so.

King’s Lynn Town take on 6th place Curzon Ashton at the Walks Stadium in what could prove to be the divisions ‘match of the day’.

Chester visit Aggborough to face an improving Kidderminster Harriers side, and may be content with a draw prior to welcoming Hereford on Bank Holiday Monday.

Unbeaten Gateshead will be bidding for a win as their opening games have resulted in four draws, and they could pick up the three points as they entertain Farsley Celtic this Saturday.

At the bottom, Blyth Spartans will be hoping to leap frog ahead of Bradford Park Avenue as they travel to the Horsfall Stadium with the home side having conceded 18 goals this season – in just five games. The new Bradford boss Marcus Law has been quick to bring in the experienced goalkeeper Rhys Taylor to his squad. Can he make a difference? Or will Lee Clark’s Spartans gain their first points of the campaign?
