The two teams should be well matched today, with Tamworth being only average at home and the same being said for Stanley's record on the road.

Tamworth, sixteenth in the league, have won three and lost three of their six home games previous to today's Nationwide Conference clash with a generous nine goals being scored and nine goals going against the Lambs.

Stanley, who currently sit in the English Conference play off positions, have picked up two impressive wins on the road recently but have worryingly lost three of the last six away fixtures. The ten goals scored in that short period has also alarmingly been weighed out by the eleven goals conceded.
