Town are just one place above Rangers in the table with five points separating the sides. Having played two more games than Rangers this is a match Town boss Rich Jagger and his side must win if they are to continue to climb the table.
Speaking ahead of the game Jagger said;
“East Riding Rangers will be a tough game, on what is normally a difficult playing surface. However if we can kick on and get a result we can really start to climb up the table.”
“The lads are full of confidence after the recent victory over Chalk Lane and looking to build on that.”
“We have some great fixtures to look forward to in February. We have home ties against Scullcoates and East Yorkshire Carnegie, as well as an away tie in the quarter final of the cup against Crown.”
“If we can put a run of wins together leading up to those games it will give the lads a real boost.”
Jagger has very little to worry about on the selection front. Joe Norton will certainly miss the match while Jordan Organ also looks unlikely to feature as he struggles to over come a knock he picked up last time out.
Their absence paves the way for 16-year-old Albanian International Aldo Hysenaj, who gets a call up though aside from that there is no change to the squad who beat a strong Chalk Lane 3-1 at the Norwood Recreation Ground.
Jagger also confirmed that Ryan Saltmer is back training after recovering from an injury that has kept him sidelined for the past few weeks saying it is good to have him playing again.
The defender has not been named in the squad to face Rangers with Jagger saying he will play with the Reserves as part of his on going recovery process.
