Gloucester City face a 120 mile round trip to fourth place Brackley Town and will look to continue their
unbeaten run at St James' Park this Saturday.
City currently are on a five game unbeaten run, winning one and drawing four. Steven King's side will look for a huge three points away from home with their opponents sitting in the play off places, and whilst having a fair few players out due to injury or suspension it will be a challenging task to complete.
The Saints currently sit fourth in the league standings and go in to the game off the back of a 1-1 draw against Chester, which was played on the 7th of January. Due to postponements, they have not played since then and will have gone 14 days with no matches.
The hosts have only lost one game at home in the league all season, a 3-0 loss to Farsley Celtic in which they had a man sent off in the fifth minute of the game.

Defender Ben Morgan will be missing this fixture due to suspension, after two yellow cards earned a red against Blyth in the last game.
New attacker JJ Hooper made a short 16 minute cameo against Blyth and will most likely be in the squad again as match fitness begins to improve.
