Leamington were too much for League One side Burton Albion in the week, but their focus now switches back to the National League North as they host Hereford at Your Co-op Community Stadium.

The Brakes defeated Burton in the Birmingham Senior Cup Semi Final on Tuesday night, Callum Gittings' early second half header enough for Leamington to crack open the champagne at the Brewers' expense.

On the other hand, the Bulls come into this fixture sitting just outside the play-off places in the table, with their last game needing a late equaliser to seal a point at home to York City.

  • Team news

On-loan goalkeeper Callum Hawkins will be available for the Warwickshire outfit having been cup tied for Tuesday's matchup against his parent club. 

The only absentee for a Brakes side coming back to full fitness is still Simeon Maye, but manager Paul Holleran confirmed in the week that the midfielder is close to returning to training. 

New loan signing Mo Faal from West Bromwich Albion could make his first start for the visitors. He signed last Friday on a one-month loan and made his Bulls debut in their draw with the Minstermen, coming off the bench at Edgar Street.

  • Predicted lineups

Leamington: Weaver, Meredith, Morley, Clarke, Morrison, Lane, Turner, Walker, Mooney, Edwards, Parker

Hereford: Hall, Haines, Pearce, McLean, Owen-Evans, Storey, Pollock, Vincent, Kouhyar, Revan, Gillela

  • Ones to watch

Leamington's top scorer this season is Dan Turner. The former Port Vale man has fifteen goals to his name this season, and is starting to develop a good partnership with Brakes number nine Kelsey Mooney.

Turner has netted in four of Leamington's last six fixtures, most recently opening the scoring at Boston United a fortnight ago.

For the Bulls, hard working midfielder Tom Owen-Evans has always played a large part in fixtures against Leamington. The midfielder was almost a Wembley hero last season, as he scored the opening goal in Hereford's FA Trophy final against Hornchurch, which the Bulls eventually lost.

  • Previous meeting

The last time the two sides met was an early season clash in Herefordshire that ended level. 

Brakes captain Jack Edwards opened the scoring in the first half, and Leamington looked to be heading for a win until Dan Smith converted a well worked corner routine to equalise in the final minute.

  • How to watch

This fixture will not be broadcast live to watch, but Leamington have made a series of match arrangements with a large crowd expected which can be found on their website.

For those unable to attend the fixture, live commentary will be provided by the hosts with links on their social media to BrakesLiveFM where coverage will start approximately ten minutes ahead of kick off. 

Kick off at Your Co-op Community Stadium is 15:00 GMT.
