Scarborough Athletic joint-boss Paul Foot is looking to add some quality to the passion his side showed in the 2-1 home defeat against Ossett Albion on Tuesday night.

Foot feels that if both traits can be mixed together then his side will have enough to grab a result at Droylsden on Saturday.

Boro may be without former Droylsden man Fernando Moke and Steve Mallory due to hamstring injuries, and there are also doubts over Harry Holden (back), Gary Bradshaw (groin) and Alex Metcalfe, who suffered a nasty gash on his leg against Ossett.

Foot said: “It isn’t about owing Droylsden one for the defeat a few weeks back, it is more about getting that win we need under our belts.

“We did it last year at Droylsden with the final kick of the game, so we know that we are capable.

“I felt that we got a good reaction out of the lads on Tuesday night against Ossett, but we need that quality as well.

“I spoke to a few people about the game and they felt that we were panicking a bit, we looked nervous on the ball and we were rushing things.

“The problem is the fact that the lads want to win that much so they are trying to do things too quickly.”
