First up on a frantic double header of trips for Lee Bradbury’s side over the next seven days is up to the North East to take on Gateshead.
The Heed, under the temporary stewardship of Ben Clark following Steve Watson’s departure, occupy the 7thand final play-off spot in the league, however have only one win to their name in 2019, that coming in Saturday’s 2-1 win over fellow relegation rivals Dover Athletic.
The trip in length is 339 miles from Westleigh Park, meaning an all-round trip of around 680 miles.
Following that is another tough, long trip this time next week when next on the radar is Dave Challinor’s AFC Fylde side at Mill Farm.
Fylde occupy fourth spot and will see the encounter as an opportunity to close the gap on leaders Leyton Orient to just the solitary point.
The Hawks scored their first National League goal in the reverse fixture in August, when Nicke Kabamba cancelled out Danny Rowe’s first half penalty in a 1-1 draw at Westleigh Park.
The trip one way is 279 miles in length, meaning a return trip is just under 560 miles.
These trips put together mean the Hawks would have travelled an incredible 1,236 miles. We’ve compiled a fun fact guide as to where that total can take you:
Gateshead V Hawks - Feb 9 (15:00)
AFC Fylde V Hawks - Feb 12 (19:45)
