NEXT UP | Marske United (A)


The race for Evo-Stik East Division safety continues to intensify as the Bulls face a fourth league fixture in the space of two weeks.


AFC travel to Marske United on Tuesday night, three-and-a-half weeks after the fixture between the two sides was originally supposed to take place, as poor weather conditions forced the postponement of the game.


A 2-1 defeat to Stocksbridge Park Steels on Saturday meant that the Bulls still need to muster more points to realistically guarantee safety, with the gap above danger remaining at seven points.


Victory will push the Bulls ten points clear of bottom clubs Carlton and Gresley, with the latter to face AFC on Saturday.

THE OPPOSITION


Tuesday night's hosts Marske recovered well from a 3-0 defeat to Brighouse by beating lowly Wisbech 2-1 on Saturday with a late winner from Jamie Owens.


The season looks all but over for the Seasiders despite their recent hot form of four league wins in five outings, as they sit 11 points adrift of the East Division play-offs with five left to play.


Whilst a play-off finish remains mathematically possible United will certainly keep pushing, but it seems more realistic now to be fighting for a strong finish.

TEAM NEWS


Striker Ollie Fearon returns to the squad after missing Saturday's game through suspension.


Midfielder Pat Lindley, however, still has to serve a further four of his five-game ban.
