PREVIEW | Tadcaster Albion (H)


AFC prepare for their first home match of 2019, as they welcome Tadcaster Albion to the Forest Town Arena in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League East Division.


The Bulls will be searching for a third win on the trot after coming from behind to beat Lincoln United 3-1 at the Sun-hat Villas Stadium last weekend, a crucial victory which followed a dramatic 4-3 Boxing Day win over relegation rivals Carlton Town.


The win last weekend lifted the Bulls out of the drop zone, and a win against the Brewers could see them rise as high as 14th if other results go their way.


The Bulls will be looking for revenge after Albion denied them a win at the i2i Stadium in the reverse fixture with an injury-time leveller.

THE OPPOSITION


'Taddy' have suffered no play-off hangovers after falling short of promotion from the old NPL North Division last season, with the Brewers sitting pretty in fourth place in the league table.


Two defeats in a row condemned Albion to a disappointing end to 2018 and a similar start to 2019, but they remain three points off the top play-off spot and nine points off pole position.


The Brewers have enjoyed being on the road this season, having so far earned eight of their 11 league victories away from home.

TEAM NEWS


Sean Whaler and Joe Iaciofano will both be available after extending their loan deals from EFL side Northampton Town.


Amongst a fairly substantial list of injuries, a return for full-back Mark Dudley is a possibility.
