Stamford Stand in the way of ending Awayday drought

Sheffield FC will hope to break their way league duck when they travel to mid-table Stamford.

Club are second from bottom and have yet to win on the road in eight outings having picked up just three draws.

With no game last weekend, it has allowed boss Mark Shaw full fortnight to work with the players whilst also bringing in several new faces.

Shaw has brought in former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Cecil Nyoni from Shaw Lane, along with ex-Hallam centre-half Julian Lawrence who arrive from Rainworth MW along with winger Tyler Williams and goalkeeper Ben Ledger.

“I’m really pleased with the business we’ve done and to get the players in,” said Shaw

“They are really good signings and will and will give us more competition for places.

“I felt it needed doing as we’ve had a weakened side over recent weeks. Cecil (Nyoni) is a big signing I’ve been a great admirer of his to get him to sign means a great deal for me.”

Shaw says he is looking forward to the trip to Stamford and feels his side are capable of going there and getting a positive result. “I fancy us to go there and get a result. It’s a tough place to go and get a result but we’re looking much stronger across the board. We’ve worked hard in training and everyone is raring to go.”

It will certainly be a tough test for Shaw’s side with Stamford unbeaten at home in this season in nine games in all competitions and with just one defeat in the last 10 outings.
