Preview: Telford (a)


Gloucester City will travel to Shropshire this Saturday as they play AFC Telford United at the New Bucks Head Stadium.

City will head into the game in full confidence on the back of a magnificent 1-0 victory over promotion chasers Fylde last weekend at TigerTurf Stadium.

Lucas Tomlinson will be looking to score in four consecutive games after recently netting three in three for the Tigers.

Telford currently sit directly below City in the league, earlier this season the two sides shared the points in a 2-2 draw.

“As a football club we are progressing. We are still a long way away from where we want to be. We’ve obviously got a really important next couple of weeks and we need to get bodies back on the grass." Manager Lee Mansell said after last weekend’s triumph over Fylde.

A win for City will see them stay above Telford in the league and maintain important momentum heading into the final part of the season.
