Lilywhites aiming to bounce back

SKEGNESS Town will make the short journey to Louth Town Reserves on Saturday, hoping to bounce back from the home defeat against Lincoln.

Manager Barry Kilmore, who is waiting for injury news from two of his key players, Liam Papworth and Joby Gowshall, can expect no favours from the White Wolves.

For the second consecutive season, Kilmore’s men travel to Park Avenue on a day their first team don’t have a fixture.

A Louth squad, strengthened by reserves trying to impress the first team manager, will present a tough test for the Lilywhites, as will a partisan Park Avenue crowd.

But if the seasiders perform with the same commitment as they did last season, Louth will have their hands full.

Louth will head into the game on the back of a 2-0 defeat at Cleethorpes, so both sides will be licking their wounds.

Skegness have a six-point advantage over their local rivals, but Louth do have a game in hand.

The match at Park Avenue will kick off at 2pm.
