Frickley aiming to home in on double success

Frickley Athletic face two potentially crunch home matches in the next week as they look to get straight back to winning ways after their defeat at Peterborough Sports.

After losing their first Evo-Stik South game of 2018 and suffering their first defeat in any game since November manager Spencer Fearn is keen to establish another good run now as the Blues enter the last third of the season and aim for promotion.

They host Kidsgrove Athletic this Saturday, another side like Peterborough Sports who are fighting hard to get clear of relegation danger.

Next Tuesday then sees Alvechurch travel to the Big Fellas Stadium and they are emerging as one of the biggest rivals to Frickley as they sit just one point behind them with three games in hand.

They beat the Blues at their place so a revenge mission is on the agenda and a win made more important after Athletic were docked three points this week for fielding an ineligible player.

Frickley had their scheduled Sheffield & Hallamshire Senior Cup quarter-final at Swallownest postponed on Tuesday.
