Salford City TamworthSALFORD CITY travel to Tamworth on Saturday on the hunt for a first ever victory over The Lambs (Kick-Off 15:00).

Sitting four points clear at the top of the National League North, and on a run of four wins in a row, The Ammies travel to The Lamb Ground in a good position.

Tamworth, meanwhile, will be hoping that they can continue to move away from a poor run of form which saw them lose four in a row before a win against York and a draw at Chorley in their last match at the end of October.

Andy Morrell’s side may fancy their chances too against a Salford side who they did the double over last season – the only team to do so.

Despite losing last season’s top scorer Danny Newton, who moved to Stevenage in the summer, The Lambs have found themselves a new top scorer in Reece Styche.

Former Gateshead striker Styche, who was teammates with Liam Hogan and Gus Mafuta, has already notched 10 goals this season and will be the one to watch for Salford.

PRE-MATCH THOUGHTS

Since a 3-2 defeat at home to Leamington, The Ammies have won their subsequent four games and midfielder Scott Burton says there is a positive mood in the squad before the trip to Staffordshire, and Tamworth’s artificial pitch:

“Everyone’s feeling good, we’ve won the last four league games so everyone’s feeling confident, but we know these can step up against sides and win games so we’ve got to be ready for it.

“If you look at the Harrogate game I think we bossed that, and this week we’ve been training on astro turf anyway, so playing on that shouldn’t change anything.”

The Ammies created a season-high 28 chances against Alfreton Town last weekend, with just Mani Dieseruvwe’s 93rd minute goal finding the net.

However Burton insists that if the chances keep coming, and Salford keep tight at the back – they currently have the joint-best defence in the league – then chances will turn into goals.

“Training’s been sharp and the boys have been banging the goals in so hopefully they’ll come! 

“We’re solid all over the park, and as long as we create chances one of them will come. 

“We’re not conceding many as a team so the goals will come, and if we work hard, no team’s going to beat us if we work hard.”
