BACK home for match day 12 of an already extremely tight Vanarama National League North season – the Magpies (14th, 14pts) taking on Leamington (8th, 17pts).

Andy Preece’s men will be looking to bounce back from defeat to King’s Lynn Town last time out. The Brakes, under long-time boss Paul Holleran, are also coming into this one off a defeat – 2-1 at home to Alfreton Town.

Another very tough league match against a side who’ve started the season very well. We’ve had a good week of training, plus an important win the county cup, so we’re positive and ready to go – Andy Preece
