Date: Saturday April 4th 2015\r\nCompetition: Vanarama Conference North\r\nVenue: Whaddon Road\r\nKick–off: 3pm\r\n\r\nGloucester City go into this crunch match at the bottom end of the Vanarama Conference North table knowing that a win against relegation rivals Leamington could see them rise up to 16th place, 5 points clear of the drop zone.\r\n\r\nThe Tigers still have a game in hand over teams above and below them, including Monday’s opponents Gainsborough Trinity, but the Tigers won’t want to rely on having to win that game to pull away.\r\n\r\nThe last time these two sides faced off City were comprehensively beaten 4-1 in a game that ex-Aston Villa striker Stefan Moore shone in, as he scored a magnificent hat trick. City’s goal that night was scored via a tremendous effort from Adam Connolly.\r\n\r\nCity come into the game off the back of a very good 2-0 away victory against Solihull Moors last Saturday, with goals from Billy Jones through the penalty spot and a tap in from Femi Orenuga.\r\n\r\nTeam news: Sahr Kabba has been having treatment with treatment with AFC Wimbledon this week after going off with a hamstring injury at Solihull and is rated doubtful for Saturday, but has a better chance of playing on Monday against Gainsborough.\r\n\r\nConnor Thompson is not ready to play this weekend but does not require an operation on his broken hand and manager Tim Harris is hopeful he will still play a part this season.\r\n\r\nHowever we can confirm that defender Jack Harris’ campaign is over for this year.\r\n\r\nYou’ll be able to catch all of the action from Whaddon Road on Twitter (@GCAFCofficial) and Facebook (GCAFCofficial) from 2.45pm tomorrow afternoon. You can listen to live radio coverage on Severn Sport Radio on www.severnsport.co.uk and on the TuneIN Radio smartphone app.\r\n\r\nGloucester City’s media coverage is sponsored by Baylis Motors.
