Tamworth Aim for Top Spot Tonight

Tuesday Feb 4, 2020

 Tamworth make the short journey down the M42 to Lye Meadow, Alvechirch on Tuesday knowing that a victory will see them reclaim top spot in the BetVictor Southern Premier League Central. A hard fought victory over Hitchin Town on Saturday saw the Lambs maintain their place in second place just a point behind Bromsgrove Sporting, but with three games in hand.
 Following the game against Hitchin, Joint Manager Gary Smith said that the game against Alvechurch provides a great incentive for the team to grab 3 more points to go top of the table. “We are looking forward to the game, it’s a chance for us to continue and build momentum. If we can go to Alvechurch and win that will be 3 games on the trot that we have won and people will tend to forget about the three games we lost. It’s not going to be easy, we will give Alvechurch the respect they deserve, but we will go there with confidence and play with no fear.”
 Tamworth will need to check on the fitness of Joe Magunda who went off early in the game on Saturday and there may be a chance he is OK for Tuesday. However, the game may come too soon for Chris Lait (heel) and Tyrelle Waite (ankle).
 Alvechurch come into the game on the back of a 0 - 0 draw at home to Leiston (Highlights can be viewed here). This came after 5 straight defeats, with their last victory away at Redditch United on 1 January. Following a highly successful season last year, ‘Church are finding it tough with 17 points from 25 games played and sit second from bottom of the table. Manager Dean Holtham was pleased with their performance against Leiston and said they created enough chances to win the game, He believes that his players are confident going into the fixture on Tuesday evening, “Confidence wise going into the Tamworth game, anybody is beatable on the day, every game we play now is a cup tie to us and that is how we are going to address it.”
