Date: Saturday 23 April 2016\r\n\r\nCompetition: Vanarama National League North\r\n\r\nKick-Off: 15:00\r\n\r\nLocation: Whaddon Road, Cheltenham\r\n\r\nGloucester City face arguably their biggest game of the season tomorrow when North Ferriby United are the visitors to Whaddon Road.\r\n\r\nThe Tigers head into the match against the FA Trophy holders four points ahead of the final relegation spot, knowing that a win will see them guarantee their National League North safety for another season.\r\n\r\nBrackley Town occupy the final spot, with Hednesford Town and Corby Town’s fates already sealed heading into the last two weeks.\r\n\r\nShould Brackley fail to win and the Tigers pick up a draw at Whaddon Road that will be enough, likewise if Brackley lose then that will see the Saints relegated and the Tigers safe.\r\n\r\nAhead of the biggest game of the Tigers campaign, manager Tim Harris has issued a rallying call for the supporters of Gloucester City.\r\n\r\n“We need the supporters like we’ve needed them all season”, Harris said. “We’ve had fantastic support for a club in the position we’re in.\r\n\r\n“It’s another big rallying call, let’s get over that line. It’s all about results now, and what matters come five o’clock Saturday is that we get that elusive win.”\r\n\r\nHarris is under no illusions how difficult the task will be, though, with North Ferriby sat second in the National League North.\r\n\r\n“North Ferriby are second in the league, they’re a big strong side.\r\n\r\n”They’ve got a striker called Tom Denton and everything goes through him, he’s their top goalscorer, so if we can overcome that threat and put in the same commitment as Tuesday I’m sure we will be okay.”\r\n\r\nThe opponents: \r\n\r\nTo read more on the history of North Ferriby United, visit their Wikipedia page.\r\n\r\nTeam news: \r\n\r\nWe are hopeful Mike Green will be fit to play after sustaining a slight neck injury.\r\n\r\nThe Tigers brand new home kit for the 2016/17 season will be on sale for a discounted price once more on Saturday, costing just £20 for adults and £10 for child sizes.
