The Pitmen return to action this evening when our attentions turns towards the Integro League Cup as we host Atherton Collieries in the semi-final at Keys Park.
After progressing into the last four of this competition, following victories over Rushall Olympic, Newcastle Town, Matlock Town and Basford United, we shall be looking to keep our good run in this cup going when Evo-Stik Division One North side Atherton visit us.
The tie must be decided on the night and if the scores are level after 90 minutes then instead of extra-time, a penalty shoot-out will decide who advances into the next round. The 2017-18 winners and runners-up will once again collect £2,000 and £1,000 in prize money respectively, while the losing semi-finalists will bank £500 each as sponsors Integro continue their long-running support for the Evo-Stik League’s showpiece cup competition.
Fullback Matt Curley is still struggling with an injury and Sam Oji is continuing his comeback after being forced off last weekend. Apart from that manager Rob Smith has a full squad to choose from.
The game kicks off at the usual midweek time of 7.45pm and Strikers Bar will be open both before and after the game for all supporters.
