Blyth make the long journey to Telford on Saturday looking to get back to winning ways following their home reverse on Bank Holiday Monday.
Spartans were unfortunate to lose 2-0 against Harrogate Town on Monday as a goal in each half condemned Blyth to defeat. The game was bad tempered from the off with no fewer than 11 yellow cards and a straight red for Jack Vann.
Telford meanwhile responded to a disappointing 4-1 defeat at home to Bradford Park Avenue by claiming a comprehensive victory over Leamington. Anthony Dwyer grabbed a brace and a there was also a goal from Jordan Lussey as they won 3-0.
Spartans currently find themselves in 11th place with their hosts occupying 13th position but with the same number of victories.
