Reds host play-off hopefuls Trinity

It’s Reds’ penultimate home game of the season on Saturday with Gainsborough Trinity visiting west Cumbria for the first time in five years.

The Lincolnshire side are aiming for an immediate return to National North following their relegation last April but to do so they will have to be successful in the play-offs. At the moment, they are in 5th position hoping to keep Buxton, Scarborough Athletic and Basford United at arm’s length.

They will be seeking a league double at Reds’ expense having emerged 4-1 winners at The Martin & Co Arena back in January. That was their best win of the season with their form more solid than spectacular (49 goals for, 40 against).

It will be the 44th meeting between the clubs with Reds winning eleven of those encounters compared to the nineteen victories Trinity have recorded.

Lee Andrews will again shuffle the pack with Gari Rowntree and Brad Carroll returning to the squad but the two Sams, Smith and Joel, missing out because of injury.

Kick-off 3pm.
