Tamworth have axed a trio of experienced defenders. Ex-Bulls Tony Capaldi and Chris Palmer, and former Luton man Wayne Thomas have all left the Lambs. Capaldi made 24 Conference appearances this season but has missed their last seven games, while Thomas was also a regular. Palmer arrived at the club last month, but only started two games. Meanwhile Michael Townsend has started the Lambs' last four matches, in which they have collected only a single point.
New Chester signing Matty Mainwaring says the club is a sleeping giant. The former Stockport man dropped from full time to part time football in joining Steve Burr's side. Cambridge boss Richard Money says his side are 'a million miles away from the play-offs' after their loss last night extended their dismal run to just two points from their last five matches.
