Scarborough Athletic tackle Farsley Celtic at Queensgate tonight

With boro winning 3-0 against New Mills on Saturday, joint managers Paul Foot and Bryan Hughes have named an unchanged side for tonight’s clash.

Foot said: “We totally dominated Saturday and a six or seven goal win would have shown me the same performance.

“Tonight is a totally different test however and we know they’ll be well up for it. It will be a tough game.

Boro's Tom Corner will look to fire Boro to success against Farsley Celtic tonight. The striker bagged a goal in Saturday's 3-0 win at New Mills.

“We have Paul Robson back available after serving his suspension which is a boost, but Leigh Franks and Matty Bloor are still out injured.

“Having the majority of our squad available for games like this always helps me and Bryan when making decisions regarding the team.

“Tonight will be a great game to watch with some exciting players on both sides, so anyone who can should come down.

“I’m always hoping for good performances from the whole team in fixtures like this but sometimes you need moments of magic, hopefully Tom Corner or Gary Bradshaw can create these if we need them.”
