The seconds face Sedgley Park at Lightfoot Green on Saturday in what promises to be a fiercely contested affair. Mike Lough’s side will be looking to consolidate their position at the top of Conference A. The visitors inflicted Hoppers only defeat of the season when the two teams met back in mid-November. However they bounced back, winning all their subsequent games including last weeks thrashing of neighbours Fylde.
Sedgley make the trip having lost last time out and will be anxious to get their campaign back on track. As a result they have placed great significance on the outcome of Saturday’s match and there is talk of it being a league decider on their website.
Rather than look too far ahead Hoppers are taking each match as it comes, and are mindful of the threat posed by the likes of Macclesfield and Stockport.
With regards to selection Owen McKenna, Dougie Grimes, Dan Fletcher and Mark Rigbye all return to the squad. Kick off is scheduled for 2-15pm with the squad due to meet at 1pm.
