Steels bidding for Spalding treble

by James Grayson

Stocksbridge Park Steels are bidding to complete a hat-trick of wins over Spalding United tonight.

The Steels will make the long journey to Lincolnshire, aiming to book a final tie with either Witton Albion or AFC Rushden & Diamonds.

Chris Hilton’s men have reached the play-offs after a tremendous run which saw them win eight consecutive matches – taking them from the bottom half and up to fourth.

Stocksbridge beat Spalding 3-2 earlier in the season before the 2-0 victory at Bracken Moor last month – a game that included a penalty save from David Reay.
