Town fans will be housed away from the home supporters when the Shaymen travel to St George’s Lane on Saturday.

The Loyals have announced that fans will be seperated for the clash, which last season finished 1-1 after Jamie Vardy’s first half goal was cancelled out.

Before that the Shaymen host Neil Aspin’s former side Harrogate Town at the Shay tomorrow.

And Aspin believes his three strikers, Lee Gregory, Gareth Seddon and Dale Johnson, all have the qualities to help re-start Town’s Conference North campaign, a competition which has seen Town played just five matches since mid-September.

The Shaymen have been in fine form in November though, scoring 14 goals, and each striker got on the scoresheet in their last outing against Altrincham in the 5-2 FA Trophy win.

On Gregory, Aspin said: “I don’t think there’s any question he has good attriubutes. I would just like to see him work harder because if he works hard he will score goals.

“He has great pace and scores different types of goals and with that pace and what he can do he should be a constant threat. We were disappointed when Alex Titchiner went (back to parent club Fleetwood Town), but we know Gregory can come in and he’s as capable as anyone else.

“Gareth Seddon is a goalscorer but I had to have a word with him at the start of the season. He was doing a lot of work outside the box, a lot of unselfish work, but we want him to score goals.

“Even a player of Gareth’s quality with the career he has had, it does his confidence no harm. I was delighted to see him get a hat-trick against Altrincham. He’s not a lad who lacks confidence but even so it’s good for him to be getting the goals and especially his third goal.

“It was a tremendous finish. Over the last few weeks he’s done well and there is no reason why he and Lee Gregory can’t be a potent partnership.

“Dale is playing in a position he has not played often and I’ven tried him in that position because I feel he has got attributes which can benefit the team in that position and his goal return has been very good.

“He probably feels a bit unfortunate that he has been left out on occasions. It was nice to see him get on the scorersheet because he did a lot of good things. Everybody knows he’s got ability, he just needs a kick up the backside. He could do with me running around and giving him a rollocking. His ability isn’t in question, we just need him to up his work rate.”
