Tuesday 18  September 2012  KO 7.45 pm

North Ferriby United take-on struggling Whitby Town looking to extend their five game winning sequence.

Whitby have only one point from their seven games so far but Ferriby Manager Billy Heath will be cautioning his team against complacency. Heath is well-aware of Ferriby's past record which has often seen poor performances against struggling teams.

Ferriby have scored 15 goals in the last five matches and conceded only two. Despite this, Heath still believes there is more and better to come from his side, "We are playing good football but not consistently throughout a game. We need to improve this and also start taking more of the goal chances that we are creating."

Saturday's kick-off was delayed by 90 minutes as Ferriby's coach and Kendal's Merseyside-based players were stuck in a massive tailback on the M6 following an accident.

Heath was pleased with Saturday's 4-2 win at Kendal Town.: "If somebody had offered me a 4-2 win before the game after spending five hours on a coach I'd have taken it!"

Saturday's win was the result of a good team performance. Dean Lisles, Nathan Peat, Gregg Anderson and Paul Foot were solid in defence. The midfield of Liam King, Russell Fry, Danny Clarke and Williams closed down Kendal at every opportunity and kept Ferriby moving forward. Gary Bradshaw and Kendall's pace and movement created problems for The home side all afternoon. Adam Nicklin had little to do in goal but was alert and agile when needed.

Ferriby squad: Adam Nicklin, Antoni Pecora, Dean Lisles, Nathan Peat, Paul Foot, Gregg Anderson, Gary Bradshaw, Russell Fry, Lee Morris, Danny Clarke, Mark Gray, Jack Muldoon,  Liam King, Ryan Kendall, Timothy Taylor Chris Bolder, Ben Hunter, Ryan Williams, Steve Gardner,  Steve Ridley, Lee Morris, Danny Clarke.

Ossett Albion will be Ferriby's next opponents in the FA Cup. The match takes place on Saturday 22nd September at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium. Season passes are not valid for this game. Admission charges are £9 (£7 concessions) and £2 for under-16s.
