Off to: Telford

Telford United. The fan run club non-league club with AFC before their name that doesn’t believe it’s better than everyone else. Apart from Shrewsbury that is, judging by their forum.

Yes, it's back to Shropshire for Mossley's first visit to the Midlands new town since the 2004/05 season. A journey which saw the Bucks claim a 2-0 win over the Lilywhites, our cause not helped by keeper Ian Wilcock getting injured and Paul Challinor having to take over between the posts.Other than that it was a pleasant enough day out.

The New Bucks Head Stadium is a great place to watch football that’s now even better, thanks to the fact that it no longer seems inordinately expensive to enter. The supporters are a good bunch too, especially now that the "we're better than you" arrogance displayed by some of their fans upon demotion to the Unibond has gone. And fingers crossed that the three Telford idiots (I won’t dignify them by calling them supporters) hell bent on trying to start something during our last visit are conspicuous by their absence.

Telford have got off to a flying start this season and sit joint top with Fleetwood, despite both having played one less game than everybody else. The only points they’ve dropped so far were in the first match of the season when they drew at home to Grantham.

For those not making the lengthy trip down the M6, don’t forget! You can listen to full match coverage of the game on BBC Radio Shropshire over the internet which will be a novel experience. The link is here.

Prediction: This is going to be an either/or game - either a comprehensive victory for the home team or a ‘the league will sit up and takes notice’ win for the visitors. So I’ll chicken out and plump for a draw in fear of being labelled a pessimist for predicting a Telford win or being a jinx for saying Mossley will emerge victorious.
