Mickleover Sports are looking to finish the Month of March on a high after only picking up one point in the month so far. That was after two home defeats, a postponement and the point away to Matlock last weekend. With the injection of some new faces over the last few days (still more TBC), John McGrath is going all out to try and make the great escape with only seven games to go. With North Ferriby’s record now be having been wiped off Sports are back on 30 points, three behind Bamber Bridge and about seven behind Grantham Town. With a game in hand over Bridge and with Sports making the trip to the side from Preston on the last day of the season, its looking like it will go right down to the wire. But three points are simply a must this weekend.
LAST TIME OUT
Whitby were defeated in their last match last weekend as they went down 1-0 at home to Workington. A 60th minute goal from Connor Tinnion proved decisive that’s how the game finished. Sports come into the game after a 1-1 on Derby Day away to Matlock Town, with Mason Warren equalising for Sports in the 72nd minute.
SPORTS TEAM NEWS
