TADCASTER Albion boss Paul Marshall expects his men to beat relegated local rivals Selby Town tomorrow (3pm ko).

Albion are into the final straight after a long, hard season in the NCEL Premier Division.

But despite Saturday’s 5-1 defeat to Barton Town Old Boys, Marshall believes there’s many things to look forward to next season.

He’ll find out tomorrow night if his men will come up against his old side, Harrogate Railway, next season.

They are currently in a dogfight to secure their Evo-Stik First Division North status.

The Station View men simply need to win their final fixture of the season and hope rivals Wakefield lose at home to bottom club Cammell Laird.

Marshall, however, is only focused on tomorrow.

“We should beat Selby,” said Marshall.

“They’ve lost most of their games recently and are already relegated.

“It seems like a long season for us. But hopefully we can win the last few games and finish on a bit of a high.”

On Saturday Nick Thompson put Albion into a fifth minute lead.

But five goals either side of the break for the away team saw them take home the points.

Albion will end their campaign in eight days’ time with a trip to Barton Town.

Meanwhile, Tad’ were due to welcome Staveley Miners Welfare to The Park on Wednesday night,

But that fixture was wiped out due to sweeping rain, which has been battering the region this week.

It has been rearranged for next Thursday (7.45pm ko).

With rain continuing to fall, and more forecast for today and tomorrow, their Selby derby could also be in doubt.

It will further clog up their end of season fixture list.
