Spennymoor are hoping to stop a run of four defeats in five games when they go to Kidderminster on Saturday.

Moors have missed out on an opportunity to consolidate a top three place in recent weeks because of their poor recent results, which sees them taking on Harriers in seventh place in the table, on the same number of points as Altrincham, Farsley and Southport, and one ahead of Guiseley and Darlington, with Gateshead not far behind.

“We need a result to make up for some disappointments lately,” said manager Jason Ainsley.

“There is plenty of work to do on making ourselves more resilient, and harder to beat.

“We are giving away far too many goals, like those we gifted last week against Kettering, although I maintain that we should have had a penalty earlier in the game “We might try a different formation today, I’ll be chatting with Tommy (Miller) and Stuart (Parnaby) about it.

“But just because we’ve lost three or four games doesn’t mean to say that we’re a bad team, just as much that when we went 13/14 games unbeaten, that we weren’t world beaters.

“As we’ve said many times before, this is a very tough league, with some very good teams. We can beat anybody on our day, but we have to be more consistent by winning matches.

“Most of all though, we must tighten up all round.”

Moors have kept only one clean sheet in their last nine matches and have conceded 16 in that period.

Ainsley has three players missing -- defender Carl Magnay has a viral infection, winger Ben McKenna has a groin injury and central midfielder Shane Henry has a hamstring injury. Defender Nathan Buddle comes back into the squad after missing the Kettering game.

Kidderminster are fifth bottom of the table and changed their manager recently. John Pemberton resigned and was replaced by Jimmy Shan.

They have won only three and drawn two of their thirteen league games this season, while Moors have won two and drawn six of their away games.
