Spennymoor manager Jason Ainsley wants his players to win at Kidderminster and keep them in the race for the Vanarama National League North title on Saturday.

Moors are hoping to return to action today after having two home games postponed, while they only picked up a point in their previous two matches against Stockport and Southport.

They go into the game in third place in the table, six points behind second placed Stockport, and seven behind leaders Chorley with two games in hand. Chorley are at Boston today, while Stockport are at Leamington, neither of which are easy matches for them. If Moors win and the others drop points, then Moors could be in pole position to win the title on Saturday night.

“We have to ensure that we enjoy Saturday’s game and get back to winning ways,” said Ainsley. “If we don’t win at Kidderminster, then we’ll have to forget about the title and concentrate on finishing as high up the table as possible. We must win and keep ourselves in the mix. It’s a bit of a cup final I suppose, but all our games are cup finals for the rest of the season.

“But we’re in a good position, there are another 19 teams who would like to be in our position, challenging for either the title or the play offs. We don’t want to jeopardise it now.

“We’re into the last quarter of the season, and it’s time for one last big push. The lads have trained well this week, and they’re looking forward to the challenge.”

Kidderminster are currently eighth in the table, four points below the play off positions. Their home form hasn’t been too convincing this season, as they’ve lost six times in the league this season.

They’ve won three and drawn of their last six matches, and on their last outing were beaten 3-0 by league leaders Chorley. Moors won the reverse fixture at the Brewery Field by 2-1 earlier in the season whilst they were undergoing a change of manager.

“Even though they lost their last game, Kidderminster have some good players and they will give us a tough test. As I have said many times, there ae no easy games in this league,” said Ainsley. Moors drew 2-2 at Kidderminster last season, with goals by David Foley and Joe Tait.

Moors will be hoping that the game goes ahead, after the nightmare of having two games postponed because of bad weather. The game against Bradford Park Avenue, which was postponed earlier in the week, has been re-arranged for this Tuesday night, kick off 7.45pm.

Striker Andy Johnson and defender Rob Atkinson are both injured, while four players have suffered a flu bug in training this week, but Ainsley is confident that they’ll recover.
