FC United of Manchester v North Ferriby
(Match being played at Stalybridge Celtic FC)
Ferriby will be looking to put the disappointment of Saturday's home defeat to Chorley behind them when they travel to play FC United of Manchester. The match is being played at Stalybridge Celtic FC as FC United's usual home ground is not available for this match.
Despite Saturday's defeat, manager john Anderson saw some positives, " I was pleased with the way the team bounced back after going two goals down. We probably dominated the last 20 minutes and with a bit more luck could have had something from the game.
Chorley's second goal was a contentious penalty awarded for a foul when there appeared to be no or minimal contact on the Chorley forward. The award certainly stung Ferriby's players into action.
Nathan Peat was unlucky to see a shot rebound from the post with the keeper beaten. Paul harsley's late penalty was the least the Villagers deserved.
FC United are never an easy team to play but Anderson will be looking to his team to display their now legendary team spirit and bounce back with a good performance on Wednesday.
It is expected that new signing Phil Jackman will be in the squad. An experienced forward, Jackman has joined Ferriby from Goole.
Possible Ferriby Squad: Steve Wilson, Ben Morley, James Williams, Kevin Larvin, Paul Foot, Nathan Peat, Mark Greaves, Chris Bolder, Russell Fry , Gary Bradshaw, Wayne Brooksby, John Leonard, Sam Belcher, Mathew Stirland, Luke Thompson, Leon Rudd, Dan Wright, Phil Jackman
