PETER BAND and Lloyd Morrison are refusing to rest on their laurels after the 2-0 defeat of Colwyn Bay — a victory that ended a game run without a win.
The strengthening programme continues, and the latest new face in the MOSSLEY squad is 6ft 5ins centre-half Derek Ubah who has been playing for Maldon and Tiptree in the Isthmian League.
Ubah has previously featured for Boston United, as well as playing professionally in Luxemburg for CS Grevenmacher.
The Lilywhites are also awaiting for international clearance for former Curzon midfielder Matty Purcell who played at Seel Park three years ago. He has spent the last two years in Australia.
Otherwise Mossley have a full squad for tomorrow (Saturday’s) Evo-stik NPL first division north fixture at Atherton Collieries.
Manager Darren Kelly says HYDE UNITED, who visit Ossett Town, should also be at full strength even though six players had various problems in midweek: Tom Pratt (groin), Kyle Harrison (elbow), James Burke (ill), Peter Crook (dead leg), Janni Lipka and Paddy Miller who pulled up pre-match.
Chris Sutherland should also be in contention having come through 70 minutes of the Manchester Premier Cup semi-final without any ill-effects.
Co-boss Paul Phillips misses GLOSSOP NORTH END’s trip to Colne with a lacerated hand. Max Hazeldine is ruled out with illness.
The Hillmen have signed defender Cavell Coo from Ashton United, midfielder Mike Roddy from Skelmersdale, and are looking to bring in a keeper on loan from Bolton Wanderers to replace Phillips.
Centre-back Alex Frost is DROYLSDEN’s only absentee for the home clash with Trafford.
Laurence Taylor has extended his loan from Altrincham for a further month and frontman Sean Miller has joined on loan from Moss Lane.
In the premier division, Football League striker Deane Smalley should make his debut for ASHTON UNITED at Barwell. Nick Evangelinos is sidelined with a strained hamstring.
STALYBRIDGE CELTIC will be looking for their third win in a row when they take on Hednesford at Bower Fold. However, they will again be without key players.
Celtic’s morale-boosting first away win of the season at Warrington in midweek was spoiled by the loss of Theo Bailey-Jones to a hamstring injury that could sideline him for the rest of the season.
Liam Dickinson is also a doubt after picking up a knock at Cantilever Park but manager Steve Burr has been boosted by the return of Ross Killock and will be able to call on Oliver Crowley, Greg Wilkinson and Josh Ramsden, all of whom were ruled out on Tuesday by illness.
Having taken four points from their last two games, CURZON ASHTON should be in good spirits when York City visit National Park. Joe Guest returns after completing a three-match ban but Niall Cummins is 50/50 after picking up at bad ankle knock against Telford United.
Ryan Brooke has returned to full training and is available, but a specialist has advised Jordan Wright to take a period of rest to overcome his long-term pelvic strain.
Paul Marshall, suffering from an ongoing heel injury, is to undergo a series of injections.

CURZON ASHTON will be hoping history repeats itself when they face Boston United at York Street tomorrow (Saturday) in National League North.
The Nash, who have slumped into the relegation places, have won only once since October 21, when they beat Boston at the Tameside Stadium.
Except for Joe Guest, who will be serving the second instalment of a three-game suspension, and long-term injury victims Ryan Brooke, Paul Marshall and Jordan Wright, manager John Flanagan has a full squad to choose from.
In the Evo-stik NPL premier division, ASHTON UNITED will be unveiling two new players for their home clash with Coalville Town. Sam Sheridan is a central midfielder signed from Altrincham, and defender Lewis Baines is on loan from Fleetwood until the end of the season.
Striker Deane Smalley, who is on the way back from a severe injury, will not figure but manager Jody Banim is very impressed with his progress in training.
“Deane’s a few weeks away from playing,” the Robins boss explained, “so we may need to get him some games elsewhere. But he’s been flying in training. He’s looked really sharp and he’s got his enjoyment back again.”
In terms of the Coalville match, Banim added: “We need to get back to winning ways tomorrow after our midweek defeat at Moss Lane when we just didn’t play well enough. We didn’t pass the ball properly and certain players didn’t carry out the jobs asked of them.
“I fully expect Altrincham to win the league, so it’s a question of who fills in behind them.”
STALYBRIDGE CELTIC travel to Mickleover — where there will be a pitch inspection at 10.30am — still looking for their first away win of the season.
Celtic, who have claimed only two points on their travels, will again be missing defender Ross Killock with the calf injury that has kept him out since mid-November.
Skipper Danny Morton picked up a knock in Tuesday’s home win over Stafford Rangers but it expected to play.
At Surrey Street, in the first division north, GLOSSOP NORTH END face DROYLSDEN. Both sides are in the middle of a patch of inconsistent form and badly need a win.
For the Hillmen, Midfielder Jack Higgs and defender Brad Roscoe are both ruled out with hamstring injuries. Adam Jones is struggling with a virus.
Dylan Smith and Ben Barber both face fitness tests for the Bloods. John Shaw comes back into the reckoning and possibly Alex Frost too.
Having registered their first win of 2018, MOSSLEY face a very difficult afternoon when they entertain form side Scarborough who are second in the table having won their last seven league matches.
Former skipper Andy Keogh should feature, having returned from Trafford. Teenage midfielder Harri Lovatt comes in on a work-experience loan from Shrewsbury Town. Keeper Oliver Mills has left Seel Park and joined New Mills.
HYDE UNITED face Colne at Ewen Fields with a fully fit squad. The Lancashire side have taken maximum points from their last five matches.
