Manager Martyn Bunce is hoping Simon Ashton will have recovered from his ankle problem to make the trip to high-flying Campion with Skegness Town on Saturday (KO 3pm).

Bailey Forth could also return to the squad for the journey to Bradford.

The Lilywhites are back in action the following Wednesday (November 14) when they travel to NCEL Premier Division side Bottesford Town in the Lincolnshire Senior Trophy (KO 7.45pm).

They then have what some would describe as a ‘must win’ home league match against fellow strugglers Harworth Colliery before a difficult midweek trip to Selby Town in the League Cup.

November is rounded off for the seasiders with a trip to Worsbrough Bridge Athletic, who beat them by the odd goal in three at the Vertigo earlier this season.
