EVO-STIK League north play-off hopefuls Tadcaster Albion feel they have improved with recent away results – but are keeping grounded ahead of their home clash with Glossop North End.

The Brewers have taken four points from their last two games on their travels, with a 1-0 win at promotion-chasing Clitheroe last weekend and a battling goalless draw with leaders South Shields four days previously.

Tomorrow, Albion return to home comforts at the i2i Stadium for the first time in just under a month, and are hoping to bring their recent good performances and results back with them, with their West Riding County Cup semi-final against local rivals Selby Town coming up next Tuesday (February 6).

Jay Taylor, a club spokesman, said of the Clitheroe game: “It was a fantastic result and a superb effort from the lads.

“It seems like we’ve turned a corner away from home, and it would be good if we could bring that away form back with us.

“It’s always nice to get back in front of your home fans. If we get a win, it puts us back up there (near the play-off places). We’re a little way off yet though so we’re keeping our feet on the ground.

“The three points would be a big boost ahead of the Selby game on Tuesday as well.”

The Brewers have come up against Glossop twice already this season, losing 2-0 at home in October’s FA Trophy tie but won the reverse league fixture 1-0 in November.

Adam Baker, the goalscorer at Surrey Street, will not feature tomorrow, nor will Josh Greening. Keeper Michael Ingham may return, while Andy Milne and Pete Davidson should both overcome injury concerns.

Second-placed Scarborough Athletic are at seventh-placed Trafford tomorrow after their 3-0 home win over Prescot Cables last week.

National League North high-fliers Harrogate Town host Billericay Town in the FA Trophy third round tomorrow. Billericay Town are top of the Bostik Isthmian League premier with 20 wins from 24.
