on Saturday, against high flying Yorkshire Amateurs in the league and will hope his side

LEAGUE POSITION AND FORM
After a big point picked up on the road against Yorkshire Amateurs on Saturday, the Sils
currently sit 13th in the NCEL Premier Division, the Sils have also picked up 7 points
from 9 in the last 3 games and will come into the game feeling confident after the good
run they are currently on, they have also won their last 2 home games. As for the
visitors, Nostell are currently 11th in the NCEL Division One and last time out they drew
1-1 at home to Dronfield Town. Nostell come into the game off the back of 2 draws and
and a defeat from their 3 previous league outings, and a break from league action could
pave the way for them to try get back to winning ways, with the visit to the Cobbydale
Construction Stadium, and a place in the NCEL League Cup Quarter Final at stake.
THE MANAGERS THOUGHTS
When asked about the result at the weekend and after picking up some decent results
as of late, Manager Danny Forrest said “From our point of view it’s a case of more of the
same, the attitude has been brilliant and we’ve seen a real togetherness which has
earned us some decent results”
On the thought of having a cup run, Manager Danny Forrest also said “we’d love a
good cup run just as much as any other team, so we’ll be doing all we can to try and
progress to the next round.”
When asked about the availability of players available for selection, Manager Danny
Forrest said “unfortunately we’re missing Myles Foley and Connor Thompson as they
are cup tied, but it just opens up a chance for somebody else to stake a claim and give
the staff some selection headaches.”
Manager Danny Forrest also emphasised on the crowds his team have been pulling in
this season and said, “the crowds have been decent all season and we hope it’s the
same on Tuesday night, as it’s really appreciated by all the players and staff when the
local community is behind the team.”

would really appreciate the support, entry prices are as follows:
