With only three league games remaining Sports simply must take maximum points from this weekends game against Lancaster City. With rivals Bamber Bridge making a trip to Hyde United, it’s important that Sports at a minimum match their result this weekend with Bamber having a game in hand the Saturday after due to Sports not playing because of North Ferriby going bust.
LAST TIME OUT
Lancaster’s last game was last weekend when they hosted Grantham Town and they shared the points in a 1-1 draw. Jordan Adebayo-Smith gave the Gingerbreads an early lead but with four minutes to go Charlie Bailey snatched a point for the hosts to take a point from the game. Sports also took a points from their last game on Tuesday night in a uneventful dull 0-0 draw at home to Witton Albion to extend their leas over Bamber Bridge to four points.
