After back to back league defeats ended their revival, Frickley Athletic are desperately seeking their first away points of the season when they go to Sutton Coldfield Town on Saturday.

Lee Morris has yet to taste any success on his travels after taking over as the Blues manager, but his team climbed off the bottom of the table, up to 15th at one point, before their narrow defeats in midweek at Matlock Town at home to Barwell last Saturday.

Now they travel to play Sutton Coldfield, who found themselves second from bottom after a 2-0 defeat at Whitby Town last Saturday.

They have only won one of their first 11 games in the Evo-Stik Premier League so Frickley will see this as a great chance to get a first away win of the campaign.

Coach travel to the game is available, departing North Elmsall at 11.15am. Contact Ruth Simpson to book a seat on 07719 011061 or ruthi.b@sky.com

The Blues are back at home in another league game next Tuesday as they entertain Coalville Town, who are also below them in the table with one win and four defeats from their first five away games. Kick-off is 7.45pm.
