TADCASTER Albion boss Paul Marshall knows his side will be gunned for on Tuesday night.

Albion travel to NCEL Premier title rivals Scarborough Athletic (7.45pm ko) desperate for win number two over the Seadogs this season.

Tad’ were simply awesome in their last meeting when they collected a 3-0 win in the FA Cup.

The match always has a bit of needle and Marshall is aware this time will be no different.

It’s a busy few days for Albion who first welcome Maltby Main to The Ings for another important Premier League clash tomorrow (3pm ko).

For Albion it represents an opportunity to quickly wipe away Saturday’s 4-1 defeat to Whitley Bay in the FA Vase, Tom Reid scoring their only goal with a 90th minute penalty.

“We’ve got a good run of games coming up,” said Marshall.

“If we can get up to Christmas unbeaten that would be good. Maltby on Saturday, they are struggling at the moment, so you’d expect us to get through that one.

“Then it’s Scarborough on Tuesday. Hopefully we can go there and not be beaten.

“It’s a tough place to go and get a result on a Tuesday night but we’ve been to Bridlington already this season and won, so we’ll be looking to do the same.

“Hopefully we’ll be back on song.

“Looking at the league it looks like it’s between Bridlington, Scarborough, us and Staveley. So there’s a few big months coming up.”

On Saturday, Tad’ slipped out of the Vase in the first round against this year’s favourites. It was a tough draw and not the end of the world according to Marshall.

“Speaking to a few of their fans they said that was the best they’ve played all season,” he said.

“They are a good team and seem to get themselves up for the Vase. It’s disappointing but we can now concentrate on the league.”
