NEXT UP | Stamford (H)

The Bulls welcome mid-table Stamford to the Forest Town Arena for their penultimate home game of the season.

On the back of a 3-0 victory at bottom side Gresley, AFC hope to continue their good form of late and finish the season on a high note following the announcement of the club's relegation to Step 5 of the non-league pyramid.

The Bulls will be aiming to stop the Daniels from securing a league double over Mark Ward's side, having won the reverse fixture 2-0 back in mid-December.



11th-placed Stamford did have a shot at the East Division play-offs until recently, fading away from the promotion chase with just two league victories to their name since January, and just one from their last nine outings.

Now 19 points shy of the top five, unfortunately any chance of a play-off finish has been long gone for the Daniels, who now look to finish the season in as high a position as possible to gather momentum for next season.



Long-term absentee Pat Lindley continues to be sidelined as he serves the fourth of his five-game suspension following a red card in the 1-1 draw at Wisbech last month.

The Bulls will be very short on numbers going into the Easter weekend fixture, with Julian Lawrence and Ben Partridge out for the rest of the season whilst Mark Dudley, Jack Broadhead, Phil Buxton and Ollie Fearon all carry injury doubts.

Gaffer Mark Ward may well need to remember his playing boots, in his own words.
