PREVIEW | Bridlington Town (A)

The search for a first league away win of the season remains at large as AFC travel up to Bridlington in hope of ending a poor run of form.

The Seasiders host Matt Chatfield's side at the Neil Hudgell Solicitors Stadium at 3pm on Saturday.


Last Time Out

A 2-1 midweek defeat to Hemsworth condemned the Bulls to a third defeat out of five league away trips, having drawn the other two.

A misclearance from Brett Lucas opened a door for Matt Hughes to tuck home under Dylan Parkin with just four minutes of football played.

After surviving an early onslaught the Bulls grew into the tie, but were slow-starting once again in the second half as winger Sidney Santos curled home beautifully from range after AFC failed to clear their lines.

Again the visitors fought back and after Wells 'keeper Jordan Greaves did well to deny Jamie McGuire and Luke Walker inside the area, Ross Duggan finally halved the deficit but couldn't inspire a full turnaround.


The Opposition

Hosts Bridlington remain in the chasing pack and could move as close as one place away from the top three if they earn a victory on Saturday.

With ten points on home soil from a possible 12, the Seasiders have rather enjoyed playing on their own turf, averaging over three goals scored per home tie.

Joe McFayden will be the one for the Bulls to look out for - six goals in six league games make him Town's current top-scorer.


Team News

Matt Chatfield will be missing several key players on the trip to the East Yorkshire coast, with Jack Hague, Ben Potter, David Corder and new signing Ishmael Dawson all missing.

Midfielder Nicky Darker will also be unavailable, as he commences his three-game suspension following the red card in the FA Vase win over Hanley Town last weekend.
