Matches against the Pitmen of Hednesford Town are always entertaining and this game is expected to be just the same. With both sides having goals of incredible quality featuring on TV and social media recently both sides will be looking to pick up more points in what is already looking like an incredibly tough and competitive league. With Basford United smashing Matlock Town out of the park 6-0 last night Sports will have an opportunity to pull clear of their Derbyshire Rivals in the relegation zone tonight and Hednesford will be looking to close the gap on Basford after their impressive win the night before.
LAST TIME OUT
Hednesford Town booked their place in the 2nd Qualifying Round the same as Sports when they defeated Southern Premier League Side Tamworth 2-0 at Keys Park. They currently sit 10th in the table after winning three and losing three of their six games so far. Sports of course won 6-0 at home to Haughmond in the same competition so both sides will be looking to get a good result off the back of their cup victories.
