Olsson waits on duo

SCARBOROUGH Athletic boss Paul Olsson will be playing the waiting game ahead of tonight’s NCEL Premier home encounter with Winterton Rangers.

Defenders Denny Ingram and Frank Belt are both doubts with respective ankle and hamstring injuries, though Olsson is happy that he does have enough in reserve.

Young full-back Josh Clayton came on and did well during Saturday’s 2-1 victory against Selby, while new signing Nick McNamara also impressed from the bench.

One boost for Olsson though is the return of Graham Botham, who could slot in down the left.

The Boro boss said: “We’ll just have to wait and see with Denny and Frank.

“They both came off Saturday, but they have had a few days, hopefully that will have been enough.

“Josh came on Saturday and did very well. I would definitely have no problem throwing him in after what I have seen of him.

“Nick has also come in and impressed. He came on for a good while on Saturday and he does look like a player who will do a good job for us.”

Olsson added: “Obviously Winterton are in a bit of form themselves, but we have won the past five matches so our confidence is very high.

“If we play to our potential in this game as we have been doing for the past few games then I’m sure we’ll be fine.”

Winterton have won their last three league outings to boost them up to sixth in the table.

They lie six points ahead of ninth-placed Boro, though Olsson’s men do hold a game in hand.
