Mickleover Sports will be looking to take confidence from last Fridays 3-2 victory over North Ferriby United as they travel to Marston Road in a very difficult looking fixture away to Stafford Rangers. Rangers have of course been as high as the National League in their history and after a bad period which saw them relegated to Step 4, have now established themselves back at Step 3 and will be looking to be challenging again this season for a promotion spot. Sports however will be keen to grab a first away win to get a good run going into September and that clash with Buxton at home.
LAST TIME OUT
It wasn’t a successful trip to South Shields for Rangers as they went down 3-0 to the side from the North East in front of over 1,600 people. South Shields are themselves a promotion contender so there is no shame in losing at a very difficult ground. Stafford will now be looking forward to returning to home territory to get back on track.
SPORTS TEAM NEWS
Tom Burgin is a definite absentee with Jake Scott, who played no part on Friday, also remains a slight doubt. Mason Warren will be pretty much certain of a starting spot after impressing against North Ferriby. Everybody else is presumed fit and rating to go should they be selected.
