Tomorrow see’s the Robins on the road as they make the trip south to North Yorkshire to take on Ossett United.
Our recent run of good form has seen us move into the top half of the table as we sit in 9th place, our hosts find themselves at the top end of the bottom half of the table, currently residing in 12th place.
The lads will be full of confidence going into the last few games of the season, unbeaten in the last 5, with 4 wins and 1 draw and will be looking to add as many points as possible from the last 6 games.
Our hosts have a mixed bag of results of late winning 1, drawing 1 and losing 3 of their last 5 games.
During the week the Robins have been fixture free allowing them to go into the game fresh, our hosts for the afternoon were in action on Tuesday night as they hosted Carlton Town, losing 1-2.
When the two sides met earlier on in the season, it produced a rollercoaster emotions right at the wire where the two sides played a 0-0 draw, with both goals coming deep into stoppage time when Alex Peterson gave the Sheepicorns the lead in the 90th minute, before the Robins salvaged a point via the most unlikely of sources when Finlay Hodgson went up for a corner deep into stoppage and slotted home amongst a goalmouth scramble.
We hope you can join us to cheer on the lads, if you can’t be with us you can follow live updates via social media @NorthShieldsFC
