TEAM NEWS

It is a quick turnaround for the Spartans as they welcome Southport to Croft Park on Thursday evening.

Blyth were in action on Tuesday and were disappointing as they lost 1-0 to AFC Telford United. The visitors have virtually secured their status in the Vanarama National League North with the points.

In a game of few chances, it was the Bucks who took theirs. A throw into the box found Marcus Dinanga and the forward was able to turn before rolling an effort into the far corner of the net.

Southport were also in action on Tuesday evening. They went down 1-0 at home to Salford City. The Ammies, scored the only goal of the game in the 67th minute through Thomas Walker.
