NEW signing Godwin Abadaki goes straight into the MOSSLEY squad for their FA Trophy first qualifying round tie at Darlington tomorrow (Saturday).
The former Rochdale striker, who has been on the books at Hyde and Stalybridge, was signed this morning from Northwich Victoria. He joins a team that has been on the crest of a wave lately and won six of its last seven matches, rising to seventh in the Evo-stik NPL first division north.
Co-bosses Peter Band and Lloyd Morrison have no injury or suspension problems to report.
Goalkeeper Ed Wilczynski returns for HYDE UNITED who visit Skelmersdale United looking to extend their run of victories to six.
Jindrich Stanek, who missed the wins over Ramsbottom and Colwyn Bay with an ankle injury, has been unable to train and must undergo a scan. His loan period from Everton has ended but manager Gary Lowe said last week he was hoping to get it extended. Wilczynski comes in on a month’s loan from Huddersfield Town.
Midfielder Rhys Gray is suspended for tomorrow’s encounter. Lowe is looking to strengthen his squad in the next few days.
ASHTON UNITED face Ramsbottom United at Hurst Cross without Dale Johnson (hamstring) and Alex Frost (knee). Co-boss Paul Phillips describes the rest of his squad as fit and raring to go.
Each winning side receives £2,700 in prize money.
CURZON ASHTON, who have gone up to ninth place in Vanarama North after three wins from the last four matches, are home to Gainsborough Trinity. Their only absentee is Tom Eckersley who is continuing with light training.
Fellow defender Simon Woodford has gone to Trafford for a month to gain some game time.
STALYBRIDGE CELTIC travel to table-topping Fylde buoyed by their midweek FA Cup win at North Ferriby.
They will be definitely be without defender Jon Shaw (knee) and midfielder Bohan Dixon (suspended), and there will be late checks on defenders Jack Higgins (ribs) and Peter Wylie (foot), both of whom picked up injuries in Wednesday’s epic encounter.
There could be starts for long-term injury victim Alex Mudimu, who was an unused substitute in both North Ferriby games, and Amour Lingouba who returns from a one-game suspension.
Celtic’s Cheshire Senior Cup tie with Northwich Manchester Villa on Tuesday has been postponed to enable them to better prepare for their FA Cup first round clash at Doncaster Rovers on November 7.
The Bower Fold club has extended its thanks grateful to Northwich and to the Cheshire County FA for their co-operation.
Ben Richardson remains the only absentee for GLOSSOP NORTH END who are home to Scarborough Athletic. Striker Brendan Zibaka joins the lengthening injury list at DROYLSDEN who play Trafford at the Butchers Arms. However, Ben Hampson has resumed training.
The Bloods will be holding a minute's applause for supporter Chris Shaw who died last week only six months after being diagnosed with cancer.
Droylsden secretary Bryan Pace said: "Chris was a popular figure who will be missed. We will be holding an official minute’s applause before kick-off and I know the fans are planning to do the same again in the 35th minute to remember him once more. Chris was only a young man and it will be an emotional occasion and fitting tribute.”
