FOOTBALL: ‘Nothing to frighten us’ says Tulips manager

Spalding United boss Matt Easton insists there is nothing to fear at promotion-chasing Tadcaster Albion on Saturday.

The Tulips are stuck in the middle of a seven-team battle against relegation.

Fourth-placed Tadcaster - who won 1-0 at the Sir Halley Stewart Field in November - are looking to stay in the play-off pack with a fifth successive win.

But Easton believes Spalding’s squad can bring back at least one point from north Yorkshire.

He said: “I know they are a big, strong side with a goalscorer who is near the top of the division’s charts.

“We’ve watched them a couple of times and had a look at some highlights online.

“However, we feel that we can go there and get something from the game.

“There is nothing to frighten us.

“We have put together a squad and everyone is pulling in the right direction.

“Clearly we will need to pick up points in the games against Stocksbridge Park Steels and Pickering Town who are around us in the table.

“But we can also get points from our other games, including this one.”

Spalding will be handed a double boost as Jenk Acar and Neal Spafford are ready to return from knee and calf injuries respectively.

Meanwhile, Spalding have been drawn away to Cleethorpes Town in the Lincolnshire FA Senior Cup.

The quarter-final is scheduled to be played at the end of July.
