AFC Telford United are enjoying their longest unbeaten run of home games since 2009 ahead of entertaining York City tomorrow afternoon.

The seventh-placed Bucks have not lost on their own soil in nine matches since a 2-1 reverse against this term’s National League North table-toppers Chorley back in March.

Chorley and eighth-placed Chester, meanwhile, are the only other teams in the division still boasting an undefeated home record during 2018/19, with Telford having won four and drawn two of their league fixtures in front of their own fans and also seen off FA Cup second qualifying round visitors Bedford Town 3-1.

The Shropshire side’s sequence without a loss at home is the best since they enjoyed an 11-match spell, immediately after being defeated 2-0 by Martin Foyle’s City team in the first leg of the FA Trophy’s semi-finals when Simon Rusk and Ben Purkiss were on target for the visitors.

Telford have also netted in each of their last 11 matches at the New Bucks Head, although only one clean sheet has been kept at the other end of the pitch during that period.

In fact, since securing back-to-back shut-outs during the opening two games of the season, Gavin Cowan’s men have conceded in all of their last 13 matches, which represents the worst run since 2014.

The Bucks have also failed to win any of their last six matches, taking just two points from a possible 15 in the league and also being on the receiving end of an FA Cup shock, losing 2-1 at Warrington Town.

Telford are hoping to welcome back 11-goal, top-scorer Daniel Udoh, however, after he missed last weekend’s 2-1 defeat at Curzon Ashton with a bruised bone close to his knee.

Udoh, 22, has hit a hat-trick and bagged three braces this season, having spent last term on loan at Halesowen Town, Chester and Leamington, before being released by parent club Crewe Alexandra in the summer, having only managed one goal in 20 appearances for the Gresty Road club.

The club’s second top-marksman Andre Brown grabbed his third goal of the season after replacing Udoh against Curzon.

He hit the target despite the visitors having been reduced to ten men in the first half when John McAtee was red-carded, incurring a three-match suspension that has seen his loan spell from Shrewsbury terminated early.

After Brown’s equaliser, Cameron McJannett went on to grab Curzon’s winning goal on 65 minutes.

Ex-City striker Amari Morgan-Smith, meanwhile, was introduced at half-time last weekend and will be hoping to feature against his former club, despite failing to get on the scoresheet in nine matches since getting the only goal in an opening-day success against Southport.

Telford can also call on the services of two players from famous footballing families.

Henry Cowans is the son of former Aston Villa European Cup winner and England international Gordon, while Ellis Deeney is the brother of Watford forward Troy.

Left-back Callum Cockerill-Mollett will not play any part having returned to parent club Walsall at the end of his one-month loan spell, following two appearances for the Bucks.
