The opposition:

The high flying Bucks are currently in second place and have spent most of the season at the top of the league, in and around the play-off spots.  Both sides were involved in an entertaining 2-2 draw at The Silverlands in October as Jamie Chandler bagged a spectacular brace for the Moors, with Joel Bembo-Leta and Nicky Walker netting for the hosts. 


Recent form:

Buxton come into the weekend's game on the back of an impressive away win at Stafford Rangers thanks to two goals from on-loan Darlington striker Liam Hardy, who has since returned to the Quakers.  That was followed by a solid 2-0 home mid-week win over Hednesford Town with goals from striker Bradley Grayson and winger Alastair Taylor (pictured above).

One to watch:

Brad Abbott


The 22-year-old midfielder was released from Barnsley in the summer after spending three years with the Oakwell club. Last season he had loan spells with Chester and Barrow in the National League, and has been an impressive performer in the Bucks' midfield this season.


The Gaffer says:

Jason Ainsley said: "Saturday is a huge game for both sides and I am looking for a big reaction after the Grantham game a fortnight ago. Games are now coming thick and fast and this will provide an opportunity for us to put a run together and climb the table in our pursuit of the top five."
