LEAMINGTON will travel to York City as one of National League North’s three most in-form teams.

The 11th-placed Brakes, along with Altrincham and Blyth, who currently lie fourth and tenth respectively, have won their last four contests - a 2-1 FA Trophy home win against Witton Albion being preceded by league triumphs over Alfreton (2-1), Chester (1-0) and Nuneaton (2-0).

It is a run that places Paul Holleran’s men within one game of setting a new club record, having never racked up four consecutive league successes during their four-season stint, over two separate spells, at sixth-tier level.

Ex-Kings Norton, Solihull Borough, Halesowen Town and Rushall Olympic manager Holleran is now enjoying his tenth season in charge of Leamington.

Since he took the reins at the Warwickshire spa-town club, City have had seven different permanent managers - Martin Foyle, Gary Mills (twice), Nigel Worthington, Russ Wilcox, Jackie McNamara, Martin Gray and Sam Collins, as well as three caretaker chiefs in Andy Porter, Steve Torpey and Richard Cresswell, making for ten in total.

Holleran’s team, who lie seven points adrift of the play-off positions and eight clear of the relegation zone, have scored in all nine of their away games this term, prior to this tonight’s North Yorkshire visit and that sequence stretches to 11 if last season is taken into account with the last time Leamington failed to net on the road eight months ago during a 1-0 loss at Bradford Park Avenue.

The Brakes’ top scorer, meanwhile, is still Matt Stenson on eight goals despite his October move to National League Solihull Moors.

Jack Edwards has the next highest tally with five, although former Notts County forward Colby Bishop has hit the target four times in six games since his return to the team.

Leamington have enjoyed four away victories this season, although all have come against teams outside the top-nine places with Alfreton, Nuneaton, Blyth and FC United of Manchester their victims.
