Mark Shaw takes his men to Thackley on Saturday, after a fortnight’s rest from competitive action.

The West Yorkshire side are without a win in three outings, but boast a victory over Tadcaster Albion in recent times, meaning Tigers would do well not to underestimate their hosts.

The two sides last met on 26th November, at Sandy Lane, when Worksop Town cruised to a 3-1 victory in front of a midweek crowd of 247.

Goalscorers were Jono Wafula, after just three minutes, Sam Liversidge and Conor Higginson in the second half.

Thackley grabbed a last minute consolation through Thomas Dugdale, spoiling the Tigers’ cleansheet.

Mike Garrod is Thack;ey’s dangerman this season with 15 goals to his credit, while Ryan Farrell has eight and Dugdale has hit the net seven times.

Like Worksop, the Dennyboys are in the process of setting up their own full-time football academy for 16 to 19-year-olds, starting in September.

They already boast a Reserve side and Under 19s.
