TADCASTER Albion make the trip over to Greater Manchester to face Evo-Stik League north rivals Hyde United tomorrow as they look to extend their unbeaten run and build on the good feeling around the club.

Last weekend, Albion drew 1-1 at home to Trafford, while the Tigers – who were guided to the FA Cup first round by coaches Darren Kelly and Dave McGurk, both former York City defenders – suffered their first league defeat of the season at Clitheroe.

The Brewers had taken the lead through Conor Sellars’ first-half penalty kick, but couldn’t find a response to Kingsley Williams’ equaliser for the visitors – who played with 10 men for the whole second period.

However, the defeat has not damaged morale at the i2i Stadium.

Jay Taylor, a club spokesman, reflected: “It’s not too disheartening.

“It’s taken our unbeaten run to five after only winning one in October, and it keeps us in and around the top cluster.

“We’re heading into a tricky period – playing four of the top six away from home in the league this month – but we’ve got confidence behind us.”

A blow to the team will be the absence of forward Aiden Savory, who pulled up before the Trafford match, but midfielder Pete Davidson should return after his hamstring injury and Josh Greening – who was taken ill yesterday – should also be fit.

Pickering Town travel to Northern Counties East League premier division leaders Handsworth Parramore, after the Pikes slipped to fourth following their draw against Bridlington Town last weekend.

Ryan Blott and Danny Gray had given them a half-time lead, but a quick-fire Jake Day brace midway through the second period rescued a point for the visitors. Handsworth, meanwhile, have not drawn a league game since early September and have only lost once in their last seven games, picking up 18 points in the run.

The Ambers’ last game ended in a comfortable 2-0 win at Staveley Miners Welfare.

Selby Town come into tomorrow’s division one game off the back of an impressive 2-0 victory at Winterton Rangers, keeping them fifth in the table and earning manager Christian Fox plaudits for his playing style.

The Robins put in a strong performance which limited their hosts to few efforts on goal, while strikes early in both halves for Ryan Woodhead and Liam Flanagan produced tangible reward.

Richard Street will next welcome the division’s second bottom side Brigg Town, who are without an away win all season, but last week ended a 15-game winless run with a 3-1 victory over Shirebrook Town.

Knaresborough Town have dropped to second spot in division one despite winning their last game 2-0 over AFC Emley, being leapfrogged by Eccleshill United who played midweek.

The Manse Lane outfit next travel to Nostell Miners Welfare, who are without a win in three.

Harrogate Railway Athletic extended their unbeaten run in the premier division to three with a 4-4 thriller at Garforth Town last week, and host Staveley Miners Welfare tomorrow.

Evo-Stik League north’s 16th-placed Atherton Collieries visit Scarborough Athletic tomorrow following the Seadogs’ midweek 2-1 win over Ossett Town in the Integro League Cup.

National League North’s second-placed Harrogate Town – fresh from last Friday’s 3-2 Buildbase FA Trophy win at Darlington – return to league action tomorrow with a clash against 19th-placed FC United of Manchester.
