Curzon return to action this Saturday, as they travel to Liberty Way to face Nuneaton Twon at 3pm.
The Nash head into the game on the back of a 2-2 home draw with Southport. Goals from Ben Wharton and Niall Cummins were not enough to clinch Curzon all three points, in a dominant but frustrating afternoon at the Tameside Stadium.
Nuneaton also go into Saturday's clash on the back of a 2-2 draw, as they picked up a point away to Chorley last Saturday. Despite the point the afternoon was a disappointing one for the Boro's as they squandered a 2-0 lead, conceding twice in the last 30 minutes.
Form wise, Curzon have struggled in recent weeks as they have failed to record a win in their last three. In spite of the dip, the Nash still sit 11th and in the top half of the table, after picking up just one defeat in the nine previous games, before the three winless streak.
The hosts have also hit a run of bad form in recent weeks with just one win in their last five games. These recent results have resulted in the Boro falling into the relegation zone, as they currently sit 20th in the National League North.
Saturday's game could potentially see the debut and return of Curzon striker, Ryan Brooke, who rejoined the Nash last Friday alongside Jamie Stott, who featured in last week's 2-2 draw with Southport, Brooke however missed the game due to illness.
We caught up with new signing, jamie Stott ahead of Saturday's trip to Nuneaton and got his thoughts on the game.
Stott said: "We'll go there and try and get the three points, I don't think there's anywhere in this league where we can't go and get the three points. We've got a good enough squad, and if we take out the mistakes I think we'll be up there."
Last time we met...
The last time the two sides locked horns the Nash ran out 2-1 winners, in an entertaining affair at the Tameside Stadium.
Despite falling behind after just two minutes, Curzon fought back in the second half and goals from Matty Warburton and Joe Guest completed the comeback, and earned John Flanagan and his side the three points.
