Trinity’s travels continue next week

Gainsborough Trinity will complete their four-game away run next week, with two more tough assignments.

On Saturday Steve Housham takes his men to Harrogate Town, the side sitting in fifth place in the Conference North as the Standard went to print.

Earlier in the season the Blues got one over on Harrogate, with a 2-0 win on the Northolme.

Goals on that day came from Brad Barraclough and a Simon Russell penalty.

Harrogate have failed to win in their last two outings, drawing 2-2 with Brackley and losing 2-1 t Colwyn Bay.

Dominic Rowe has netted in each of their last three games, while Chris Hall has 13 goals in the league this season.

On Thursday Trinity make the long trip to Oxford City, a side deep in trouble, second from bottom in the table.

It will be the first meeting of the two clubs this season – in a situation mirroring last season when they played their two league encounters in April.

Trinity were unable to register a win over City last term, losing 2-1 at home and drawing 1-1 away.

The Blues themselves are without a victory in four games, and have lost their last two outings 4-0 and 3-0 at Bradford Park Avenue and Altrincham respectively.
