Whitby Town travel to face Peterborough Sports in the Second Qualifying Round of the Buildbase FA Trophy on Saturday afternoon (3pm).

The Blues overcame Worksop Town in the First Qualifying Round, running out 4-1 winners at the Towbar Express Stadium at the Turnbull Ground.

On that night, the Seasiders fell behind early on but responded well with a brace from Matthew Tymon accompanied by a Jake Hackett penalty and a strike from Connor Bell.

Chris Hardy’s side can expect a tough assignment at Lincoln Road however against a Sports side currently sitting eighth in the BetVictor Southern League Central Division.

* Attacker, Arran Wearmouth is unavailable to travel due to other
commitments elsewhere

expected back until the New Year
* Midfielder, Dale Hopson is also looking set to miss out over the next
few weeks with his knee injury
* Fellow midfielder, Callum Patton may be back in action soon after a
serious back injury

THOUGHTS OF CHRIS HARDY
“It will be a tough game but we don’t prepare for easy games because there aren’t any. There’s a fair amount at stake in the FA Trophy as it’s a prestigious competition. We’ll go down there in good spirit and we’ll be feeling confident and hopefully we can get a positive result.”
