Last two home games have been draws
We play Leamington for the third time this season when the Warwickshire side visit Blackwell Meadows on Saturday.
We've been to Leamington twice this season -- we won there in the FA Cup on our way to the first round, but we lost badly in the league there at the start of December.
We've never beaten Leamington at Blackwell Meadows, our previous two matches have ended in goalless draws.
And some of our injury problems are clearing up -- Gary Martin is now fully fit, while Michael Liddle is almost 100 per cent.
If you can't make the game, why not listen on Darlo Fans Radio, or follow it on the official twitter or website?
