Quakers try again at Southport

Quakers try again at Southport

Looking to avenge 3-0 league defeat

Quakers make another attempt to play their Trophy game when they go to Southport tonight.

Saturday's game was postponed because of structural damage before Quakers set off, but the weather forecast looks better for tonight.

Quakers are hoping to do better than their last visit in October.

Quakers lost that game 3-0 partly because of a poor first half which Southport dominated.

Since then, though, they have brought in Jake Lawlor and Danny Ellis into defence.

Jake Lawlor, Danny Rose and Jake Cooper have all been given permission by their parent clubs to play in the Trophy for us.

Here are assistant manager Darren Holloway's views on the game:


Team News:

Jake Cassidy starts his three game ban for his dismissal at Boston. 

George Smith is out because of injury

Andrew Nelson is out with a knee injury

Lexus Beeden is on loan to Billingham Town until 18th December

Joey Hope is on loan to Guisborough until 18th December
