This coming Saturday Marc Nash and his men make the 140 mile journey to the oldest football club in the world as recognised by FIFA.

In 2004 they were awarded the FIFA Order of Merit, along with Real Madrid.

This season they currently sit in 10th place on 15 points, in the month of October they have picked up 7 points from 5 league games with wins against Carlton Town and Brighouse and sharing the spoils with Bridlington Town.

The Robins come into the game unbeaten throughout October, picking up 11 points from 5 their 5 league games so far this month, which sees them currently sitting in 7th place on 19 points.

Last time out our hosts lost 3-0 away to Cleethorpes, so will no doubt be looking to make amendments and make the most of home advantage. The Robins left it late to clinch all 3 points courtesy of an Antonio Agostinho stoppage time winner.
