Stamford start 2019 with a home game against Pontefract Collieries.
The Daniels welcome back captain Jake Duffy after his 3 match ban. Stamford go into the game of the back of successive wins against Stocksbridge and Wisbech. In the whole of December they won three and drew of their 5 games with their only defeat coming away at Loughborough Dynamo and this is the place of the only goal conceded by Stamford in that period.
Pontefract are in excellent form coming into this game having won all six of their last 6 league games. Their last defeat was at the end of October against Lincoln United.
This game is the reverse of the fixture from August bank holiday when the Daniels travelled to Yorkshire and came away with 2-1 win thanks to goals from Rob Morgan & Bradley Fortnam-Tomlinson.
Stamford currently in 10th place in the table sitting 7 places and 8 points behind Pontefract.
The match sponsor for this game is the Grainstore Brewery of Oakham.
