The Tiger's manager was appointed at the end of September following the departure of Dave McGurk, and has overseen two home and one away league victories since taking up the post, recording wins against Scarborough Athletic and more recently Ashton United, at home, their solitary away win to date coming against Nantwich Town, another of the sides around us. Sitting four places and a point below the Holy Blues, Trinity have a game in hand over Saturday's opponents, but will be keen to open up a gap at the foot of the table, with all three points come 4.45pm. On the road, results have been harder to come by for United and Trinity will be hoping that fortress Northolme will return to its normal difficult place to be for the opposition, come 3pm.
The youthful Gainsborough side assembled by Tom Shaw came through a couple of light training sessions following the battle of South Shields last time out, with the boss not revealing any fresh injury concerns ahead of the game.
"Tomorrow, we will once again pride ourselves on outrunning, outworking and outthinking our opponents and as we have shown in many home games this season, when we get into a rhythm with the ball we can cut the opposition apart with our talent and quality. Let’s all play our part in a big week and come 5pm next Saturday be satisfied with our efforts and points return, ready for the next challenges that lie ahead."
