Two Key Fixtures That Could Halt Curzon’s Push To Their Highest League Finish
With only seven fixtures left, we are really getting into the business end of the season for the Nash.
There is still a great chance of Curzon Ashton beating their previous highest league finish of 11th in the 2105/16 season, but if they are going to they really can’t afford to be dropping points.
There are a few difficult games in this run in and the stand out one’s for me are both away fixtures.
The first of these is against AFC Telford, who like a lot of teams in this division started strongly, and then have started to wobble a bit. However, their home form is good, and while their defence can be a bit questionable, they are more than capable of finding the back of the net, only failing to score in two games all season.
This could prove problematic for Curzon, who have struggled with their defence at points this season. It could be a high scoring game, which is good for the neutral! However, the Nash will need to make sure they keep things tight, and not make the mistakes they were making earlier in the season where they were scoring and playing well up front, but letting in a few too many easy goals at the back.
The penultimate game of the season for Curzon is likely to be one of the toughest of the season, against the once mighty Stockport. They have been in flying form this season, and playing them away so close to the end of the season while they are pushing hard for automatic promotion will not be an easy fixture. They have looked dominant in several of their games this season, and comfortably put two past Curzon back in November, Curzon need to be at their absolute best to try and stop this freight train and this looks like the one fans most need to worry about.
This fixture, I imagine is local for many Curzon fans, so if you can get down, do! It’s a huge important fixture and it’s so important to get behind the team!
