Tamworth Match Preview

Tamworth Match Preview

Following The Holy Blues’ emphatic 2-0 win at home to Leamington in the FA Cup, attentions now turn back to the league, as Gainsborough travel to the midlands to face Tamworth. A stern test can be expected, with Tamworth currently sat in the play-offs. It was back in March last season when Trinity last visited Tamworth, where they just fell short. Danny Newton, who now plays in League 2 for Stevenage, grabbed the winner to send Trinity home empty handed.

Ashley Worsfold remains a doubt through injury; the frontman had to be replaced in the first half after suffering a hamstring injury to Leamington on Tuesday. Dave Frecklington admitted that former Lincoln City striker Alex Simmons is now in contention to start on Saturday following the potential injury to Worsfold. Simmons has been watching from the side-lines in recent weeks due to suffering a knock which needed resting. Peter Dearle can return to the Trinity squad too. The defender on loan from Notts County was cup tied on Tuesday after playing in a previous round for Handsworth FC.
