SPENNYMOOR manager Jason Ainsley has told his players to take nothing for granted when they travel to bottom club Nuneaton on Saturday..

Moors are flying in third place in the Vanarama National League North table, having won their last four league games to put them four points behind second placed Stockport with two games in hand. More importantly, they are five points inside the play off places.

But Ainsley is anxious to avoid a banana skin against a rock bottom team who caused a few anxious moments last season at Liberty Way before a Glen Taylor goal gave Moors victory.

“Football has a nasty habit of causing a surprise when you least expect it,” he said.

“I have said many times before, that teams near the bottom of this league are well capable of beating teams near the top.

“I had a meeting with the players during the week and told them that we have 15 very tough games ahead over the rest of the season. We must have the right attitude, take nothing for granted, and be prepared to give everything.

“We’re in a very good position which many teams below us would like to have, and we must make sure that we continue to win matches.

“We have to get three points on Saturday, regardless of the performance. Nuneaton was a tough place to go to last season, and we can’t go there complacent.

“They will have nothing to lose against us, they’ve got some good young keen lads in their squad. We will have everything to lose, and nothing to gain.”

Nuneaton are going through another crisis at the moment. They are bottom of the table with just three wins all season, and in midweek their owner/chairman resigned, leaving manager Jimmy Ginnelly in charge of the club.

They have picked up just 6 of their 16 points at home this season, and have endured several crises over the last year.

Moors’ home game against Bradford PA, which was postponed last Saturday because of a waterlogged pitch, has been re-arranged for Tuesday 12th March, which means that Moors are playing midweek games in three of the next four midweeks. They go to Altrincham next Tuesday, and are at home to Southport on Tuesday 5th March.

In the EvoStik Premier Division, South Shields, who lost in midweek at Grantham, have a top of the table clash against Warrington. Whitby Town are at home to Grantham.

In the EvoStik East, league leaders Morpeth are at home to Sheffield, and Marske United take on Pontefract.
