MARK Bower is taking nothing for granted as Bradford Park Avenue look to complete a league double when they host Tamworth tomorrow.

Avenue opened their season with a 1-0 win at the Lamb Ground, when Adam Boyes netted the decisive goal deep into stoppage time.

Andy Morrell's men have won just one of their last five National North league games and are four points and four places worse off than their sixth-placed hosts.

Yet Bower said: "They are a very good side, they have a quality manager and they've had a settled side with no real injury worries.

"Their form at the moment is no barometer to the outcome of this game, especially as they've been better away from home.

"We've had a good run and put a few wins together but we'll have to keep all of the good things that we've been doing in our game to keep that run going. This will be another very tough game.

"I seem to say that every week – but you only have to look up and down the table to see that all these clubs are still competing. There are 15 or 16 all still in with a chance of making the play-offs."

Avenue moved up one place after last weekend's 3-1 win at Alfreton Town but still have just a two-point cushion over Chorley, who are just outside the play-off zone and with a game in hand on Bower's side.

Tenth-placed Tamworth are three points outside and are sandwiched in the table between York and Stockport, all three having played 20 games as well as Avenue.

The Lambs recently lost ten-goal leading scorer Reece Styche to league rivals Darlington but bought 21-year-old former Cheltenham striker Zack Kotwica from Gloucester to fill the void.

The young striker, who made 40 first-team appearances for Cheltenham, netted 13 goals for Gloucester in National South this term.

Bower said: "Back on the first day of the season it was very tight and it was a bit harsh on Tamworth that we got that late winner.

"I remember Wayne Brooksby chasing down a lost cause and sending in the cross for Boyesy. We were fortunate.

"This'll be another tight game as well because I've come up against Andy (Morrell) many times and they've always been settled by the odd goal.

"We're going to have to make sure that we go about our business and maintain the high standards we've set ourselves and maintain our concentration.

"Everyone came through the last game okay and they have trained well.

"Tully (player coach Ryan Toulson) joined in a bit more this week in training but this game is too early for him, so he's the only one not in contention for the squad."
