After having rescued a point in their last fixture from a superb last minute block by Cecil Nyoni, The Holy Blues look to continue to pick up points as they come into their final two games of the season where they carry on to attempt escape from the relegation zone. Gainsborough will host second in the league Kidderminster Harriers at the Martin & Co Arena this Saturday where they will be looking to pick up all three points. However Trinity boss Dave Frecklington doesn't believe its going to be so simple as he says this ahead of the fixture.
"I think it will go right down to the wire, but I believed that when myself and Terry Fleming (Assistant Boss) took over the job. Saturday would be our toughest game of the season. Not just because of the magnitude of the fixture, but also because the Kidderminster side are a team that most people rate as the best footballing side in this division."
"If you go by the form book, they will need to have an off day and we will have to play out of our skins to get a result. But we are all 100 percent sure we can get one out of this."
The guests for Saturday currently sit firmly in second place with four wins and two losses out of their last six, and are showing some impressive form. Making the battle a big one for Dave and his Holy Blues this week. The gaffa speaks about how the home support could be the difference in this weekends fixture.
"Against Salford last Friday there was a big crowd and a big atmosphere and I can't stress enough how much it helps the lads. We could do with the same, if not more against Kidderminster on Saturday. The supporters can play a huge role in helping us climb away from trouble so I would urge the fans to come in their numbers to our final home game and help us take a big step towards survival."
The man to watch for the Harriers seems to be top goalscorer Arthur Gnahoua who has managed to find the net twelve times this season, eleven of them being in the league. One of which in the reverse fixture vs Gainsborough which saw the Harriers win three goals to nil. The French forward is closely followed by teammate Andre Brown who has scored ten for his club this season, meaning Trinity are going to have to defend carefully if they want to continue their form of two clean sheets in a row.
Make sure you have grabbed your tickets to cheer on the Holy Blues for this truly exciting fixture which could potentially be the decider for their attempt at escaping relegation.
