The Opposition:

The Gingerbreads started the season with just two wins from their opening ten games, but since November have put together a strong run and are now serious play-off contenders sitting in 8th position.  But they are only three points behind second place.  Both sides were involved in an entertaining 3-3 draw at The Mares in October with Moors securing a point in the last minute after trailing 3-1 in the second half.


Recent Form:

Grantham are unbeaten in their last 14 games and haven't tasted defeat in the league since 8th November against Matlock Town.  The Gingerbreads are also top of the form table over the last ten games, and Monday night's 4-1 win at Stourbridge in the Doodson Sport League Cup means they'll be travelling up to the North East in high spirits looking to make it 15 without loss.


Coalville's current league form reads - WWDWWWW


One to Watch:

Lee Shaw


Lee Shaw is currently the fourth highest scorer in the league with 14 goals, including one against Moors in the return fixture, and has scored 20 goals in all competitions this season for the Gingerbreads.


The Gaffer:

Manager Jason Ainsley said: "It's been a frustrating two weeks with no game and we are facing a side who are flying so we must continue where we left off as it was an excellent result and performance against Coalville Town. We are all desperate to get back on the pitch, and with us not having another game for two weeks after Saturday then we must ensure we keep the pressure on the teams in and around us."
