Who to Watch?

Thomas Dugdale is a quality striker who has the potential to cause problems. Brad Walker is a real danger man too on the wing. He has the ability to make things happen out of nothing so will be one to watch.

Team News

Ben Hinchliffe is likely to miss the game after coming off at half time on Tuesday with a hamstring issue. It’s likely Jacob Sweeting could deputise again. Taron Hare returned to the squad on the bench on Tuesday so is in contention. Tom Davie could also be an option following his return to fitness.
