PREVIEW | Thackley (A)

The search for a first league win since August continues with a trip to mid-table Thackley.

The Bulls' last win in the NCEL Premier Division was a 2-0 victory over Eccleshill United at the Forest Town Arena; they are now winless in seven league outings.

Kick-off at Dennyfield is 3pm.


Last Time Out

High flyers Yorkshire Amateur condemned the Bulls to their third consecutive defeat within the space of seven days, coming out on top with a 2-0 win at the Forest Town Arena despite the Bulls hitting the woodwork twice again.

Ashley Flynn prodded the Ammers ahead on the stroke of half-time, before he set up Fernando Moke with the simplest of tap-ins after a long ball caught AFC's back line off-guard.


The Opposition

Bradford-based Thackley have been in the Northern Counties East Football League since 1982.

The Dennyboys, currently sitting in a healthy eighth position in the Premier Division table, will be searching for revenge after current Bulls skipper Phil Buxton scored a 90th minute winner the last time these two sides met in December 2017.

Thackley will also be hoping to return to winning ways after suffering a midweek defeat at the hands of Eccleshill.


Team News

Midfielder Nicky Darker will serve the final of his three-match suspension on Saturday, and will be available for selection for Tuesday night's home game against Handsworth.
