Harrogate town boss Simon Weaver says he is “not getting carried away” by his side’s excellent start to the Conference North campaign.

Town, currently second, host recently-relegated Altrincham at the CNG Stadium and Weaver is not getting too excited with just two games played.

He said: “We are progressing nicely. It’s very early on in the season but the signs are good.

“Second place sounds good but it’s very early on in the season. You won’t see me getting carried away at all,”

Altrincham pose a real threat to Town and, on the back of successive 2-2 draws against Halifax and Darlington, are chasing their first win.

Yet Town, whose only injury concern is right-back Lewis Turner, are unbeaten at home on their new 3G surface.

With Town tipped for a top-three finish, Weaver will be given a better indication of his team’s chances in this early-season title-contender clash.

Elsewhere, Bradford Park Avenue entertain Nuneaton Town at the Horsfall Stadium with two draws from two.

Nuneaton, have played just once so far, losing 3-2 at home to Halifax on the opening day. And chasing a second win of the season, Halifax welcome Worcestor City to The Shay.

Worcester are yet to win in the league, having drawn 2-2 with Harrogate on the opening day of the campaign, before succumbing to Tamworth in midweek.
