Lancaster City will look to bounce back to winning ways when they face Marske United in a rearranged fixture.

The Northern Premier League clash tonight (November 8) was originally set for October 4 but was postponed due to Marske’s Mount Pleasant stadium floodlights being vandalised.

Lancaster lost 2-1 to Stafford Rangers at the Giant Axe on Saturday but fought hard to try and make it 2-2.

They remain 20th and in the relegation zone but a win could see them out of the bottom four.

The Dollies’ on-loan goalkeeper Sam Waller has now returned to Burnley, meaning Curtis Anderson is most likely to start in goal.

Captain Andy Teague suffered a nasty head injury on Saturday and manager Mark Fell told the club website he expects him to be out for “a couple of months”.

As for 16th-placed Marske United, they have a new manager in the dugout. Curtis Woodhouse had a losing start as Seasiders boss, losing 3-2 to Atherton Collieries on Saturday.

They were, however, winning 2-1 heading into the final minute of normal time, but the game was turned on its head by Atherton.

The Seasiders’ current top goal scorer – Adam Boyes, with 10 goals – returned to the scoreboard on Saturday with Marske’s second of the game. He’s a player who Lancaster will undoubtedly be looking to limit chances for.

After Lancaster’s 2-1 defeat on Saturday, Mark Fell told the club website that “the good news is it’s a couple of days before we go to Marske and try to rectify” the errors, defensively and offensively, that his side made against Stafford Rangers.

“We can go there (Marske) with some confidence of how we’ve played for the lion’s share of the game.

“Roll your sleeves up, that’s what we’ve got to do.”

Marske United v Lancaster City gets underway at Mount Pleasant on Tuesday at 7.45pm.
