Quakers looking for second win in three days tonight

Quakers looking for second win in three days tonight

Preview of tonight's away game at the Tameside Stadium

We go to Curzon Ashton on Monday night full of confidence following a good 3-0 home win over Kettering, our first of the season.

Goals by Stephen Thompson (2) and Jarrett Rivers were the main features of an entertaining performance.

Here’s AA talking about that game, and looking ahead to Curzon.



There are several audio and video player interviews also on the website. Stephen Thompson talks about Saturday's game in which he scored twice, and now has 96 goals to his credit.



Our last game:

Kettering (home) won 3-0 Thompson 2, Rivers

Team: Elliott, Liddle, Watson, Bascome, Laing, Galbraith (sub Heaton 73), Rivers, Hatfield (sub Holness 82), Campbell, Thompson, O’Neill. (sub Donawa 65)

Subs: Bell, Wheatley


Team News: Right back Luke Trotman is ruled out for the season with an achilles problem, while striker Jamie Holmes is out with a cartilage problem.  Midfielder David Atkinson is doubtful with a foot injury, he’s possibly still a game or two away from a full return.

AA reports one or two knocks, but nothing serious. He took Terry Galbraith off against Kettering purely as a precaution.
