Curzon return to action this Saturday at 3pm as they host play-off, pushing York City at the Tameside Stadium.

The Nash head into the game on the back of an impressive win away to A.F.C. Telford United on Tuesday night. 

Goals from James Baillie and new signings, Jake Dunwoody and Ben McKenna earned Curzon a superb 3-0 away win. 

The win moved Curzon out of the relegation zone, and up to 17th on 34 points.

The Minstermen also come into the clash on the back of a win after they defeated table toppers, Salford City 1-0 at Bootham Crescent last Saturday.

Form wise, Flanagan and his side head into the clash on the back of two games unbeaten with a draw and win, after previously going six games without three points prior to the 3-3 draw at Boston last Saturday.

The visitors head into the game in a rich vein of form, with just one defeat in their last nine games.

The loss came in their last trip to Greater Manchester as they were defeated 2-0 by Stockport County at Edgeley Park.

The game could see a return for Joe Guest, as the wing back has completed his three-match ban after being sent off for a late challenge in last month’s 2-1 defeat away to FC United of Manchester.

Players’ Thoughts

Midfielder, Sam Walker gave us his thoughts ahead of Saturday’s clash.

Walker said: “Obviously they have some good players, I’m sure the manager will be planning for that but we’ve just got to go in confident, we don’t fear anyone at the moment. 

Last time we met...

The last time the sides locked horns resulted in defeat for The Nash as York recorded a 2-1 win back in November.

The home side went in with a two goal lead at the break, and this proved too much for Curzon, as despite a valiant second half performance and a wonder strike from Joe Guest, Flanagan’s side went home empty handed.
