Scarborough Athletic face the NCEL Premier division’s basement boys Lincoln Moorlands Railway on Saturday in what should be a comfortable encounter.

Rudy Funk’s men beat Lincoln 5-0 at home last month and since then the struggling club have conceded 20 goals in four outings, including a 7-2 defeat at Pickering on Saturday.

Boro striker Ryan Blott scored two goals against Lincoln in their last meeting, these strikes contributed to his current tally of eight for the season.

Blott is currently third on the league’s goalscoring list behind Parkgate Nathan Forbes-Swindells with 11 in all competitions and former Scarborough FC striker Lee Whittington, who has hit nine for Worksop Parramore.
