NFU v Bradford PA (Evo Prem)


Tuesday 13th December 7.45pm

Evostik Northern Premier League Premier Division
North Ferriby United v Bradford Park avenue

Ferriby return to league action when Bradford Park avenue visit the Rapid Solicitors Stadium for an Evostik Northern Premier League match.

Bradford are fifth in the table and are in a group of six clubs that are threatening to break awy at the top of the table.

Saturday's FA Trophy against Chester as was a blow to Ferriby. The impetus of the game changed after Chester were awarded a controversial opening goal that surprised even the Chester fans and officials.

Ferriby Manager Billy Heath commented, "Goals and refereeing decisions change matches and that is what happened with the first goal. We had a game plan that was working up to that point. Chester were becoming a bit frustrated but the goal meant we had to change our game plan. Up to the first goal they had limited chances."

Heath continued, "The complaint isn't sour grapes. Chester are the best team we have played this season and they will probably be promoted. On the day they deserved the win."

Heath and Assistant manager Bobby Carroll will now be able to focus the team's attention on consolidating their place in the Premier Division. The side has started to pull away from the relegation zone. Despite Saturday's reverse, The Villagers remain one of the most talented and skilful sides in the league and are more than capable of moving into the top half of the table.

New signing Anthony Lloyd will probably return to the squad after being cup-tied on Saturday. James Bennett, signed on Friday from Bridlington, was on the bench on Saturday and will remain in the squad. Nathan Peat is still suspended. Paul Foot is doubtful with a hamstring injury.

Probable Ferriby Squad: Steve Wilson, Adam Nicklin, Anthony Lloyd, James Bennett, James Williams, Kevin Larvin, Ben Morley, Paul Foot, Sam Denton, Chris Bolder, Peter Davidson, Paul Harsley, Russell Fry, Gary Bradshaw, Alex Davidson, Danny Clarke, Luke Thompson, Wayne Brooksby, Sam Belcher, Rob Moy
