NEXT UP | Morpeth Town (H)

A tough challenge faces Mark Ward's side on Tuesday night, as they welcome Evo-Stik NPL East Division leaders Morpeth Town.

The Bulls will be hoping that the visitors' three-hour journey down to Forest Town will be an advantage as they look to pick up a crucial three points to boost their survival hopes.

AFC moved four points clear of danger on Saturday thanks to a 1-1 draw at Wisbech with just nine men on the pitch; it could have been an extra two if it wasn't for two red cards on either side of half-time.

With a game-in-hand on all the teams around them at the rear end of the table, Tuesday night is an opportunity to take a huge step towards survival.



League leaders Morpeth have dropped points on just eight occasions all season, and a win over the Bulls would mean that only Pontefract could catch them at the top.

With 76 goals scored and just 25 conceded, the Highwaymen have been the team to beat almost all season, and their numerous long journeys haven't stopped them from keeping their away form in shape.



With suspensions taking a week to process, red-carded Pat Lindley and Ollie Fearon remain eligible to play in the crucial fixture.

Charlie Dawes also comes back into the side after he missed Saturday's game due to personal commitments.
