Daisy Hill will be looking to bounce back from last week’s defeat at home to AFC Blackpool when they travel to face Nelson tomorrow in the North West Counties League First Division North.

Last weekend, manager Lee Hill had to field a much-changed team with three debutants, due to a big injury list, but the picture looks brighter this weekend as most of those who missed the last game are now back in training.

“Last Saturday was a bit of an anomaly in a way, as we had so many injuries,” said Hill.

“But we have the majority of the players who missed last week back now, and Sam Twist, Tom Brown, Blerti Jacaj and Precieux Ngongo will all be available again.

“We’ve also had a look at Ben Taylor and Basit Yussuf in training this week, who joined us on loan from Warrington Rylands and played last Saturday.

“They did well and showed the potential they have, and they are included in the squad as they deserve another chance.”

Tomorrow’s opponents, Nelson, have rung the changes recently, with their position at the bottom of the league leading to a change of manager and a brand new squad being recruited since the turn of the year.

However, they have played only once since mid-January, and although the weather in East Lancashire this week has not been good, Hill believes Nelson officials will be doing their utmost to try and ensure the game goes ahead.

“I think Nelson will be really keen to get the game on, and if I was in their shoes I’d have looked at the result we had last Saturday and probably think we are there for the taking,” said the Daisy boss.

“It’s going to be an unknown, as they have had their games - last Saturday and on Tuesday - postponed, so we haven ‘t had the chance to watch them.

“So we are going in a bit blind, but while information about the opponents can be useful, ultimately it’s about us, and it’s an opportunity for us to get three points we need to move us up the table.”

Kick off at Little Wembley is at 3pm.
