TEAM NEWS

OPPOSITION

Spennymoor have lost two of their last five fixtures, and sit 12th in the league with 50 points.

With only four clean sheets in their last ten matches, there is a good chance for Blyth to continue the good goalscoring form in recent weeks.

WHAT WE’RE SAYING

Speaking after the win against Farsley Celtics, manager Terry Mitchell said: “We’re obviously going there to try and get a result, that’s number one. We go everywhere to do that.

“With Spennymoor, obviously chasing play-offs, they’ve lost today (Friday) but they’re still not out of it. The leagues wide open. They’ll be going all out, they’ve got to beat us really.”

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING

After the 1-0 loss to York City, Spennymoor manager Anthony Johnson said: “There’s 20 days of the season left. Five games. Depending how that goes, we’ll be here next season.

What we’re looking for is character. What we’re looking for is resilience. What we’re looking for is how bad does the squad want to get in the play-offs like we do.”

LAST TIME WE MET

The return fixture this year saw the Spartans earn the three points with a 3-1 victory at Croft Park.

O’Donnell grabbed the opener in the first half, but a Toby Lees goal in the second half gave Blyth the lead.

Connor Thomson added to Spennymoor’s misery with his late finish.
