Two new signings will be in contention for Curzon Ashton on Saturday as they prepare to take on league leaders York City.
Forward Charlie Jolley (Wigan Athletic) and midfielder Connor DiMaio (Stockport County) have both been brought in on a month’s loan as manager Mark Bradshaw looks to capitalise on last week’s win over Telford United and climb away from the relegation zone.
Lewis Reilly will hope to overcome an injury problem and make his first start since returning to the club on loan from Crewe Alexandra.
They couldn’t face a much tougher task to follow up on that morale boosting win in the shape of unbeaten York who hold a one-point advantage over King’s Lynn at the top of the table.
The Minstermen’s success has been built on a solid foundation rather than a flashy attack. Alex Kempster leads their top goalscorer list on seven goals – only one more than the Nash’s Sean Miller – but their record of nine goals conceded is the best of anyone.
A Ryan Shenton goal gave Curzon a narrow victory the last time the sides met in January at the Tameside. A Joe Guest goal in the reverse fixture earned Curzon a point at Bootham Crescent ensuring they went unbeaten against York last season.
