Gainsborough Trinity will be looking to knock off a fortnight of ring rust as they welcome Worcester City to the Northolme on Saturday.

With waterlogged pitches in West Yorkshire causing postponements at Bradford Park Avenue and Guiseley in the last week, Saturday’s game will be the first for the Blues since their 1-1 draw with Leamington on February 8th.

And with their opponents sitting just above them in the Skrill North table in 16th place, Steve Housham knows that his side have to take an important three points.

The enforced lay-off has come with benefits however, allowing the Blues’ manager to rest players coming back from injury and patch his thin squad.

Greg Young should be able to retake his place in the centre of defence after recovering from the back injury that has kept him out for a number of games, while Jonathan Williams returns to fitness after a hamstring tweak.

With Liam Davis also back in the fray having served his three match suspension, Housham should have a much stronger squad to pick from than in recent weeks.
