TOWN expect to be at full strength for Wednesday’s Lincolnshire Cup final against Scunthorpe (at Market Rasen, 7.30pm).

Skipper Harry Sharman – one of two players substituted due to injuries in last Saturday’s 44-8 league defeat at Mansfield – will have shaken off a ‘dead leg’.

And Tom Duerden, who went off with a knee problem, should be available too.

Sharman said: “We’ll have the strongest squad possible for this one.

“This has been our first season at this league level, but our position is not what it could have been so this final gives us a way to take something good from the campaign.

“We’ll be up for it and if everyone is on top of their game I’m confident we’ll win.”

National League Three side Scunthorpe, who won Town’s current division – Midlands One East – last season, have been in a similar position to Spalding this campaign, struggling a little in the lower half.

They are currently tenth out of 14 teams after losing 53-12 at Longton last Saturday.
