PREVIEW | Belper Town (A)

Updated: Feb 23, 2019

The Bulls have a tough trip on Saturday, travelling to promotion chasers Belper in hope of getting back to winning ways.

A lethal Cleethorpes Town brushed AFC aside last Saturday, before the Bulls fell to a Notts Senior Cup quarter-final defeat at Carlton during midweek.

Mark Ward's side will be hoping to avenge their 3-2 defeat to the Nailers in the reverse fixture, which saw Town come from two goals down to win it in injury time at the Forest Town Arena.

Victory wouldn't change the Bulls' position in the East Division table, but it could push them as many as eight points clear of the drop zone.



Belper have enjoyed a much better season than their last campaign, aiming upwards at the NPL Premier Division rather than looking behind their shoulders like last season.

The Nailers sit in a healthy seventh position, although they remain five points behind the East Division play-offs having played at least one game more than the teams around them, meaning that there's no room for slip-ups.



Pat Lindley will hopefully make his first league start for several weeks after competing in his first game back from suspension on Wednesday.
