Blues return to action after midweek mix-up

By Liam Ryder

Whitby Town return to action tomorrow afternoon after their already postponed mid-week game was called off at the last minutes by the referee.

As a result, tomorrow’s game at Witton Albion will only be the second of Steven Snaith’s suspension received in the last away game for the Seasiders, a 2-2 draw against Stafford Rangers.

Andy Monkhouse, who also served a one-match ban against Nantwich Town, will return to the squad for this one and may be expected to start in central-midfield with last weeks’ makeshift holding-midfielder, Callum Patton unavailable for this one.

Connor Dunlavey is also unavailable for the trip to Cheshire. Dunlavey, who was available on Tuesday night made a quick dash to his former side, Billingham Town, and was able to play for some of the second half in his return to fitness.

Blues defender, Luke Bythway still remains sidelined with injury, something in which Chris Hardy may not be too concerned about given recent defensive performances.

The Seasiders will be trying to avenge the 2-1 defeat suffered at the Turnbull Ground earlier in the season, however this may be a close tie with the Albion on a similar run of form to the Blues.

For supporters who are unable to travel to Wincham Park, there is live commentary on Whitby Town Radio with Paul Connolly.
