After three away games on the spin, ending today with a 2-1 defeat at Luton Town, Tamworth are in action on Tuesday night (Oct 06) when York City are the visitors to The Lamb with a 7.45pm kick off.
Then on Saturday (Oct 10) Histon travel to Tamworth for another Blue Square Conference tie, kick off 3pm.
Gary Mills welcomed back Alex Rodman to the side on Saturday v Luton and Michael Wylde, named on the bench, is getting closer to pushing for a place in the starting eleven but Neil MacKenzie is set to be out for at least another month after undergoing an operation on his injured knee.
Mills was pleased with the performance in the second half at Luton, despite the overall result and in his programme notes for tuesday night's game he says; "It's great to be back home again after a number of away trips, York will no doubt provide us with a tough test and we are back at home on Saturday when Histon are the visitors and we'll be looking to make the most of the home advantage. I was immensely proud of the lads on Saturday at Kenilworth Road and you may ask why after going 2-0 down but I'm sure that you will appreciate the way we applied ourselves in the second half and on another day we would have forced the draw."
