Trinity front man, Bradley Grayson will be looking to add to his tally against one of his former sides, with two goals and an assist at the Northolme. The energetic front man will look to keep up the pressure on the Bucks' backline as they make the relatively short journey from their Derbyshire base. Currently sitting fourth with nineteen points from nine games, the side from Silverlands have picked up maximum points twice in five away games and are yet to taste defeat. Whereas our home form is our position of strength with three wins, two draws and a defeat in six Northolme outings.
With Trinity's injury misfortunes beginning to clear up, Head Coach Tom Shaw is beginning to see options at his disposal. "We are excited by a real challenge tomorrow against an excellent Buxton side. I feel we have more than competed in the last few weeks with sides expected to finish higher than us and that has given us real belief that we can beat anybody and dominate teams when we are bang on method and hit some high physical levels."
"This fixture will give us a real marker of what we may be capable of in the longer term this season, it will be a game where we will be punished for errors and we will have to work hard to create our opportunities, but with the current form a large group of individuals are in and therefore the group, I am very confident we can cause Buxton some problems at Northolme tomorrow."
"We will need the supporters tomorrow evening. They have been brilliant so far and we will need them to help our improving group through any tough moments and I love the appreciation the fans have shown for the incisive forward play we have displayed in recent weeks, it has given the players a big boost and hungry to do more."
In the Buxton goalkeeping department, there are a couple of familar faces. Keeper Theo Richardson spent time on trial with the Holy Blues a couple of seasons back, conceding and saving a penalty in the Lincolnshire Pre-Season Festival of Football. His Goalkeeping Coach is Charlie Cresswell, a popular member of the coaching team, initially brought in by Lee Sinnott and John Reed. One of the league's top marksmen plies his trade for the visitors, who boast seasoned pros across the squad. Diego DeGirolamo currently leads the way at Buxton with seven strikes to his name, but Warren Clarke and Ash Chambers have also been regularly on target in the opening couple of months of the campaign.
