Preview: v Harrogate Town 22/4/17

Brackley’s final away fixture of the season comes at Harrogate Town on Saturday.

With four wins and three draws in the last seven games Saints have put together an impressive run of form and want to finish the season strongly at The CNG Stadium, Wetherby Road and then next Saturday at home against relegation-threatened Stalybridge Celtic. Harrogate, currently 11th, have an extra game still to play, ironically at Stalybridge, before concluding their campaign away at AFC Telford United.

Saints won the game at SJP earlier in the season with goals from David Moyo and Matt Lowe but the record of games between the clubs shows the home side often on top. Playing on the new artificial surface for the first time, Saints have an opportunity to break that sequence of results and record a first win at Harrogate since Charlie Griffin netted to give Brackley a 1-0 victory in 2014.

Jimmy Armson missed out at the weekend as he was unwell and he might be recovered and back in contention for Saturday. Otherwise Kevin Wilkin has his full squad available for selection. Harrogate have a number of injuries but Simon Ainge who limped off in the home defeat against FC Halifax last Saturday is reportedly fit to play.

Harrogate have announced free entry for the game for under-18s and so a good crowd is assured for The Sulphurites last home game of the season.
