On Saturday, Marc Nash and his men face one of the toughest tests of the season as they travel to Nottingham to take on league title contenders Worksop Town.
The lads will need to be at their best as they will face off against a team that has not tasted defeat in the league since the opening day of the season, when they went down 2-1 to Stockton Town. They then drew the second game 2-2 with Bridlington Town before 11 consecutive wins.
They also reached the 4th Qualifying round of the FA Cup and the First Round Proper of the FA Trophy within that time.
Our lads will be looking to bounce back after last Saturday’s disappointing stoppage time defeat to Bridlington Town and showcase that we can mix it with the best of them.
Both teams were scheduled for action but it was only Worksop with the run out as they came from behind to win 4-1 at home to Stocksbridge Park Steels, the Robins were ready to welcome Graham Fenton and his Blyth Spartans squad to the Daren Persson Stadium but the bad weather had other ideas.
