What's In Store In The National League North On Saturday?

By Tom Scott

It's really hotting up in the National League North and we're not even halfway through the season yet!

We've got intensifying battles at both ends of the table which is making for a great card yet again.

After two straight defeats, Chorley are looking to bounce back and hope their barren spell won't last too much longer.

Jason Ainsley brings his Spennymoor Town squad to Victory Park and could go within one point of the leaders with a win.

Hot on the heels of the Magpies are Kidderminster Harriers and Bradford (Park Avenue).

The Harriers host Southport at Aggborough whilst Mark Bower's men travel up to York City, who are hurting after two consecutive defeats.

Things seem to looking up off the field for Nuneaton Borough - the Liberty Way club have announced their new owner.

With just two wins all season, they'll be hoping for a win against Leamington to spark a turnaround in their fortunes.

Hereford are still searching for a long overdue win and face Altrincham who have maximum points from their last three.

Brackley Town
host in-form Chester whilst Guiseley are in County Durham to face Darlington.

Neil Reynolds may not have his first win for FC United of Manchesteryet, but the feel good factor is certainly back.

The Rebels will be in for a tough test against Blyth Spartans who have lost just once in their last four outings.

Stockport County will have the play-off places in their sights when they face Curzon Ashton.

John Flanagan's men have taken just five points from a possible 24 at home this season.

AFC Telford United haven't won away since August and travel to Alfreton Town.

Consitency is what Boston United have been lacking recently and they travel to Ashton United.
