In their penultimate away fixture of the 2018/19 season, Tadcaster Albion travel to West Yorkshire on Saturday to face Frickley Athletic looking to keep their play-off hopes alive.
Three defeats on the bounce has made a top five finish unlikely for the Brewers who can accept nothing but a win from this fixture if they are going to keep the pressure on those above them.
Frickley have enjoyed a change of fortunes since the turn of the year losing just twice in 2019 and that was to two high-flyers in Brighouse Town and Ossett United respectively. There’s no doubting that Frickley have underachieved this year, one of the fancied sides before a ball was kicked but they will finish the 2018/19 campaign in mid-table.
In the first meeting between the two sides this season, Taddy produced one of their best performances, if not their best of the whole campaign thrashing their Yorkshire counterparts 4-0. A rare Casey Stewart header as well as a brilliant hat-trick from Joe Lumsden made for a memorable night at the i2i Stadium.
The last time Albion visited South Elmsall was back in December 2016 when an Adam Baker brace sealed a 2-0 victory in the Integro League Cup.
Two of the Evo-Stik East’s twenty-goal-men go head-to-head in this intriguing looking contest with Joe Lumsden and Jacob Hazel tied in third place for the race for the division’s golden boot.
Team News: Josh Barrett is back in contention after three months out following shoulder surgery. Corey Roper is recovering well and may return before the season concludes.
