Re: Josh Heaton

We can't afford for them to miss out Saturday. I'd rather they missed out the following league game. Don't understand your logic. We are only 5 points clear of Bradford PA who have better form than us over the last 5 games. You would rather we won a Cup game and lose a few more players who aggregat...

Is there a team in England with a better record against us than Curzon Ashton?
We won at Curzon in 2016/17.
If it's teams with better records against us then try Chesterfield. We haven't won there in the league since 1965. Sixteen games.
