Lancaster City will hope to make it four consecutive home wins when they take on Marske United.

The Dollies beat Whitby Town 2-0 which made it three victories on the bounce at the Giant Axe, having also beaten Matlock Town and FC United of Manchester 2-1 and 2-0 respectively in the last few weeks. City currently sit in 14th position in the NPL Premier Division.

They announced the signing of Sunderland academy player Owen Robinson on a one-month loan deal on Monday night. The 19-year-old plays as an attacking midfielder and already has NPL experience, having had two loan spells at Warrington Rylands, one of which was earlier this calendar year.

He is available for selection for Tuesday’s game.

Marske United made a managerial change last week, but the man brought in to replace Curtis Woodhouse is very familiar to Seasiders fans.

Carl Jarrett has returned as their boss just five and a half months after leaving the club. His first spell in charge lasted eight years and he was very successful in that time. Last season he guided the club to promotion to the NPL Premier Division for the first time in their history.

Jarrett’s second term at the club started with a 2-1 defeat to Warrington Town with the club’s top goal scorer this season Adam Boyes (16 goals) getting on the scoresheet.

Marske are currently in the relegation zone and will see Tuesday’s game as a huge opportunity to get some points on the board.

Dollies manager Mark Fell said: “We know how [Carl Jarrett] sets him team up and we know how Curtis [Woodhouse] set his team up so there will be a difference. We will look to put the best 11 out there that we can.”

He went on to say, “Do we have to rotate? Possibly, but we have the squad to do that, and we’ll do the research as we always do.”

Lancaster City v Marske United kicks off at 7.45pm on Tuesday February 28 at the Giant Axe.
