South Normanton Athletic Match Preview (A)

By Jack Hundley

City take on The Shiners as we look to make it 12 unbeaten!

Up next for City, we travel to Derbyshire as we take on bottom of the league South Normanton Athletic.

Last season saw City pick up just a single point against 'The Shiners' - that coming at the victoria ground in a 1-1 draw where Alex Tomkinson grabbed the goal. This was followed by a City 2-1 defeat at Lees Lane, which saw Dave Reynolds pick up his 30th goal of the season, and a result which ensured South Normanton didn't face relegation last term.

Our hosts for the match have had a difficult start to the season, with just 3 points from their first 10 MFL Prem games of the season - however they did all come last weekend thanks to a 1-3 victory over Wolves Sporting, so perhaps a corner has been turned.

City's early season form has been impressive, and we currently sit 2nd in the MFL Prem with 24 points from 12 games. We are also on an 11 match unbeaten run in all competitions, having last lost out way back in August to Walsall Wood on penalties in the FA Cup.

Support home and away for City so far this season has been brilliant - something a lot of the fans have been praising on social media - lets keep it up and cheer the City boys on to a 12th game unbeaten! #KeepTheFaith
