Whitby Town will be looking to build on their recent win against Nantwich Town when Stafford Rangers visit the Turnbull Ground to move into the play-off positions in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League.

Forward Matty Tymon will serve the last game of his three match ban following his red card against Halesowen Town.

Midfielder Adam Gell is a doubt after he picked up a knock during the win at Nantwich. The Seasiders will also be without defender Kieran Weledji through injury.

Chris Hardy has the rest of his team to choose from and could hand debuts to some of his recent acquisitions from Guisborough Town.

Following the win against Nantwich Town, Chris Hardy spoke to Paul Connolly and said: “we’ll take into account the knocks and make some decisions going into Tuesday.”

The Blues know plenty about Stafford after their recent goalless draw on the road against them but Hardy feels that the long journey can play a part in helping Whitby across the line.

“It’s going to be difficult but they’re coming to us midweek which should be an advantage to ourselves,” Hardy added.

“We’re expecting a tough game.  They’re a decent side and their league position doesn’t tell a true story.”

Whitby are six unbeaten in all competitions and the Turnbull Ground has been a fortress for the Blues this season, losing just four games on home soil. Hardy’s side will be hoping that the trend continues tomorrow.
