On Saturday Scarborough Athletic move into the final four outings of an Evo-Stik League season that will come to an end at week on Saturday.

They take the trip to Gresley on Saturday and then follow that up on Easter Monday with a home clash against Goole - the last Queensgate game of the campaign.

Boro will be at full-strength for the games apart from long-term injury victims Bryan Hughes, Pete Davidson and Chris Bolder.

Boss Rudy Funk said: “It will be an interesting one for our fans on Saturday because I don’t think a Scarborough team has played at Gresley before.

“I personally know Gresley well. They are one of the old-fashioned Unibond clubs, run very well by experienced people.

“If we can reach the same levels of performance as we have in recent games then hopefully we’ll come away with something.

“We played well against Leek and in most of the other recent matches, despite the fact that we are still missing three big players in Bryan, Pete and Chris.

“Jordan Thewlis and Grant Ryan have both come in to boost us though, we will be looking to finish this season in style.”

Funk is also hoping for a hefty fan-backing when his side do battle with Goole on Easter Monday.

He added: “I would urge our fans to come down have watch us against Goole because we want to go out there and say thank you.

“They have been absolutely fantastic this season, backing us through thick and thin.

“It has been a tough season for me at times, but the fans have stuck by me. I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who wears a Boro badge, they are all a credit to the club.”
