Mickleover will be hoping to finally put their bad form to an end as they prepare to host fellow strugglers Morpeth Town at the Don Amott Arena this Saturday at 3pm.

Sports have not won any of their last eight games, with their last victory being the 2-0 win over Leek Town in the FA Cup second qualifying round on the fourth of September.

Mickleover came agonisingly close to victory just a week ago against Scarborough Athletic, but a very late equaliser from the home side ensured Sports were still without an away win this season.

Morpeth Town have also been struggling this season, they find themselves in 19th place, two places below Mickleover who are currently in 17th. However, Morpeth are only three points behind and have a game in hand. Both sides have negative eight goal difference.

Mickleover will want to avoid defeat or they will see Morpeth leap frog them in the table.

Morpeth secured their first victory in seven games in their previous match with a 3-1 home victory over Radcliffe FC.

Mickleover were narrowly beaten 1-0 by table-toppers Matlock Town in their most recent game in midweek.

The Highwaymen are managed by Stephen Turnbull and play their home games at Craik Park in Northumberland. They were founded back in 1909 and the team’s best achievement to date is their 2016 FA Vase win.

The last time these two sides met was over a year ago in September 2020, when Morpeth won 1-0 at the Don Amott Arena.

Mickleover will be looking for their first win in over a month and after a couple of narrow defeats and tight draws, Sports fans must be feeling that a victory is not too far away.

The game kicks off at 3pm on Saturday 9th September at the Don Amott Arena.
