There will be no selection headaches for Scarborough Athletic boss Rudy Funk as the NCEL Premier promotion race reaches a conclusion.

The Boro boss has recently added another midfielder in former Premier League man Bryan Hughes to his squad, but he won’t be worrying about the situation.

He is expecting to welcome Jimmy Beadle back from illness for Saturday’s game at Parkgate, 3pm, while fellow midfielder Tommy Adams will also return to league duty after a three-match ban.

Funk said: “Jimmy should have shaken off his bug and Tommy will return, alongside them you have the quality of Pete Davidson and the experience of Bryan Hughes.

“I have no headaches, it makes me laugh when people talk about things like that.

“When I go to bed at night I have no problems in getting to sleep.”

Funk is expecting another tough game when his side take the trip to Rotherham on Saturday.

“Parkgate are a good, tough side, who are always there or thereabouts in the table,” he added.

“They have had a bit of a blip since Doug Shelley has left as manager and I know that he was saddened to move on from this position.

“They will still be strong and dangerous though, but it is a good surface and we will be keen to continue what we have been doing.
