PREVIEW | Goole (A)

A quick return up to mid-Yorkshire is on the agenda tonight, as the Bulls are entertained by mid-table Goole.

Defeat at the weekend kept AFC in 18th position in the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division; a victory could help them leapfrog Knaresborough Town into 17th.

Kick-off at the Victoria Pleasure Grounds is 7:45pm.


Last Time Out

The Bulls were left frustrated yet again on Saturday afternoon; despite a wealth of chances, Matt Chatfield's side couldn't find the net and were beaten by Grimsby Borough via a single set piece.

Josh Sunter headed Grimsby ahead at the near post from a well-executed corner, whilst Hugo Warhurst produced a fine goalkeeping display to keep the highly-fancied hosts at bay.

Ross Duggan, Luke Walker, Jordan Annable and Grant Ryan all could and should have found the net for AFC, but Scott Drury too was in good form between the sticks and was on hand to save his defenders.


The Opposition

Defeat to Staveley Miners Welfare condemned the Vikings to a third defeat in five outings, with Terence Barwick and Matty Bloor's side now sitting in 12th position in the Premier Division table.

Tuesday night's hosts are interestingly yet to draw a game from nine home outings - winning five and losing the remainder.

It'll be the first ever league meeting between the two sides tonight, with Goole switching leagues to the NCEL for the first time in 14 years last season, when the Bulls were playing Step 4 football.


Team News

Jamie McGuire can look forward to returning to action on Saturday afternoon, as he serves one last game of suspension after being sent off against Penistone Church last month.

Forward Jack Warner will also be sidelined after picking up a hamstring problem early on in Saturday's defeat to Grimsby.
