Date: 25th April 2015\r\n\r\nCompetition: Vanarama Conference North\r\n\r\nVenue: Kellamergh Park, Fylde\r\n\r\nKick-off: 3pm\r\n\r\nGloucester City travel to Kellamergh Park looking to spoil the Championship party of AFC Fylde this Saturday.\r\n\r\nThe Tigers secured their Conference North safety nearly 2 weeks ago now, following a 2-1 victory away to local rivals Worcester City and followed it up last Saturday with another 2-1 win this time at home to Stockport County.\r\n\r\nAFC Fylde currently sit in second place in the Conference North table, 2 points behind current leaders Barrow but with a much superior goal difference.\r\n\r\nTherefore all the Coasters have to do is better Barrow’s result and they will be crowned champions in their inaugural season in the Conference North.\r\n\r\nApril has been a successful month for Fylde who have picked up ten points from a possible twelve, with impressive wins against Colwyn Bay and Harrogate Town as well as a late victory over Bradford Park Avenue.\r\n\r\nCity have won five of their last six games in the league, and are unbeaten in seven and impressive victories against the likes of Solihull, Chorley and Stockport County have seen City move out of relegation trouble.\r\n\r\nThe Tigers could finish in the top half if they win and Solihull Moors and Stockport County both lose against Harrogate Town and Chorley respectively.\r\n\r\nTigers boss Tim Harris said: “The fact that we play Fylde who are a good side with much to play for is irrelevant. We’ve got to be as focussed on Saturday as we have been in the last 10 or 12 games and finish the season in a positive manner.”\r\n\r\nTeam news: Tom Webb will not play a part in City’s final game, after he broke his wrist.\r\n\r\nSahr Kabba has an outside chance of playing and will face a fitness test before the match tomorrow. Kabba, who has scored 4 goals since joining the Tigers, has not played since sustaining a hamstring injury against Solihull Moors.\r\n\r\nRoss Staley also has a bit of knock, but Tim Harris is hopeful of including both.\r\n\r\nJack Harris underwent knee surgery yesterday and will be starting rehabilitation in the next few weeks.\r\n\r\nHarvey Rivers is likely to feature following an impressive competitive debut against Stockport County last weekend.\r\n\r\nYou can follow live updates from 2:45pm tomorrow on all our social media channels.
