Difficult selections going into tough weekend

By Liam Ryder

Chris Hardy may find it difficult to put two strong sides together this coming weekend, starting tomorrow against Warrington Town at the Turnbull Ground.

The Blues head off to Leeds on Monday afternoon to face Farsley Celtic, a promotion chasing side and in Warrington, the Seasiders will also be faced with a tough task against the second placed Yellows.

Skipper, Steven Snaith remains out after missing Tuesday’s thrilling 3-2 victory over Mickleover Sports. This is mostly due to a lack of match fitness after a delayed suspension period due to postponements.

Andrew May will also be a miss for this one after being forced off midweek, being replaced by Jamie Poole, who could fill in for against the Wire.

New signing Jassem Sukar could also come in for the injured centre-back. This would be the former Dundee United man’s debut for Hardy’s side.

The Blues will also be missing Anthony Hume, who, like Andrew May, was forced off in midweek.

Despite beliefs that Luke Bythway’s season was over, there is a chance that he could feature yet again this season but it is too early to take any risks for the defender.

As well as injuries for the Blues gaffer to deal with, he will also be without Matty Tymon and Kevin Burgess who are both unavailable for this one

On top of these absentees, Callum Patton will also serve the start of his suspension after seeing red against Coalville Town in the 1-0 victory last Saturday.

The Blues troubled tomorrow’s visitors in the reverse fixture back in October; the Seasiders narrowly going down 2-1 at Cantilever Park.

Warrington come into this one on the back of a 1-1 draw at home to Workington during mid-week. This was a battle between two sides desperately fighting for promotion.

Entry to the Turnbull Ground is £10 for adults and £6 for concessions. Children under 18 can enter for just £3 and under 16’s are welcomed free with a paying adult. We hope to see you at the Turnbull Ground tomorrow afternoon for a 3pm kick-off.

Supporters who are unable to make the journey to the Turnbull can listen in on Whitby Town Radio with Paul Connolly and Andrew Snaith from 3pm.
