Match preview

By Lewis Glennon

Tonight Alvechurch take on Stratford Town for the fifth time this season. Here is everything you need to know about the game.

How have both teams been playing?

Without a game on Saturday, Alvechurch have had plenty of time to prepare for this game and build on their good form. Last week's 3-2 win over St Neots Town shot Ian Long's side up to third in the table; a remarkable feat. However, they have been dealt blows with Danny O'Callaghan leaving the club and Yusiuf Cessay's loan spell from Blackpool ending. Despite this though, Ash Carter could be set for his first start since re-joining the club; and Long will still have options up top to pick from.

Stratford Town meanwhile, have kept up their great form since Thomas Baillie took over, winning only losing two out of their last 14 games. This included Saturday's late winner against South Shields in the FA Trophy; courtesy of Michael Taylor. With cup games being their agenda of late they now focus on the league, looking to climb up from their current 15th position. Also expected to feature for Stratford is former Alvechurch player Taylor Morrison.

What has the score been in previous meeting's between the two sides?

Having met four times this season, the record between the two sides currently stand's as one win for Alvechurch, one draw, and two wins for Stratford. With those four games containing 12 goals it promises to be another exciting game.

Who are both side's top goalscorers?

Kieron Cook is Alvechurch's top goalscorer this season with six goals this season.

Michael Taylor is Stratford's top scorer with 13 goals to his name.

Where is the game being played?
