Cambridge City return to league action tomorrow as they entertain Northwood at Westwood Road.

The last league outing for City was on Bank Holiday Monday when they recorded a comfortable 4-1 victory over Bedford Town. The Lilywhites then made it two wins on the bounce with a 3-1 FA Cup win over St Neots last Friday night.

City boss Robbie Nightingale looks set to name an unchanged line-up but will be without the services of midfielder Harry Norman after he was released from the squad yesterday.

Northwood arrive with 7 points to their name, having lost only once in the league so far and that was on the opening day when they were defeated 2-0 at newly promoted Hartley Wintney. They then went on to record a 1-1 draw against Moneyfields followed by two victories against Arlesey and Hayes & Yeading respectively. They suffered disappointment in the FA Cup when they lost 1-0 at Swindon Supermarine at the Preliminary Round stage.

One of the key players for Northwood looks set to be Evans Kouassi who was on the scoresheet in their previous league victory at Hayes and Yeading. The striker is from the Ivory Coast and has had spells with the likes of Bishop’s Stortford, Billericay and Chelmsford.

A win for the Lilywhites would keep the momentum going ahead of the big FA Cup tie at National League South high fliers, St Albans City next weekend.

As usual, if you cannot get to the game then full updates will be available throughout the afternoon on the City official Facebook and club twitter feed with a full report, analysis, and post-match interview with Robbie Nightingale on the official website on Saturday evening.

Kick-off at Westwood Road is at 3:00pm.

Five Facts about the Visitors:

Manager: Simon Lane
Formed: 1926
Nickname: The Woods
Best FA Cup Performance: Fourth Qualifying Round, season 2000-01
Fascinating Fact: Northwood recorded their highest attendance when they entertained a Chelsea XI for a pre-season friendly in 1997. An attendance of 1,642 watched the game at their Chestnut Avenue home.
