Tamworth v Gloucester City

\r\n\r\n\r\nDate: Tuesday August 12th\r\nCompetition: Vanarama Conference North\r\nVenue: The Lamb Ground\r\nKick-off: 7.45pm\r\nOpponents: Formed in 1933, Tamworth are one of the most well known non-league clubs having flirted up and down the top two division of Non League for a couple decades.\r\n\r\nThey have won the FA Vase and been FA Trophy runners-up and won the Conference North back in 2009 before facing relegation last season.\r\n\r\nThe Lambs have enjoyed great successes in the FA Cup in recent years, beating Crewe Alexandra in 2010 and playing Premier League Everton at Goodison Park in the Third Round only two years ago, losing 2-0.\r\n\r\nThe Tigers last met Tamworth in 2000, with the sides drawing 1-1 at the Lamb Ground.\r\n\r\nTeam news: The Tigers will enjoy a squad with a near clean bill of health apart from Jack Harris (knee) who is about two weeks away from a return and Lewis Hogg (knee) who is 4-6 weeks away.\r\n\r\nTim Harris’ side will be buoyed by a full coach of away supporters as well as other travelling fans for the short trip to Staffordshire as they look to build on Saturday’s absorbing 3-3 draw at home to Bradford Park Avenue.\r\n\r\nYou’ll be able to catch all of the action from the Lamb Ground on Twitter (@GCAFCofficial) and Facebook (GCAFCofficial), and live commentary on Severn Sport.
