Whitby Town aim to end poor run
3:38pm Wednesday 25th September 2013 in Sport
WHITBY Town are aiming to end their poor run tonight when they host Stocksbridge Park Steels in the Evo-Stik League premier division.
Town endured two defeats this week, falling 2-1 at home to leaders AFC Fylde on Saturday after crashing 4-1 at Northern League side West Auckland in the FA Cup first qualifying round replay in midweek.
Fylde took a two-goal lead in the opening 10 minutes on Saturday through Matthew Hughes and Matthew Blinkhorn.
Whitby came back into the game before the interval, and Adam Rundle scored after 65 minutes to set up a tense finish to a good game.
Whitby boss Darren Williams was disappointed with "schoolboy errors" for Fylde’s early goals but reckoned his side should have had two penalties.
He added: "I was pleased with the way we played for 75 minutes. We were in control of the game and we deserved something out of it."
Tonight’s game – in which the Blues are aiming for a first home win in six attempts – kicks off at 7.45pm. On Saturday, Town travel to Bury’s Gigg Lane to meet FC United of Manchester (3pm).
Scarborough Athletic’s struggles in Evo-Stik division one south continued as they lost 3-1 at home to Coalville Town on Saturday. Ryan Blott bagged an equaliser on the hour-mark but two Coalville goals in the last five minutes sealed their fate.
Boro were at Brigg Town last night (Tuesday) and are in FA Cup second qualifying round action on Saturday, at home to Penrith.
