Town will be looking to bounce back from their cup defeat last weekend and rediscover their scoring form against a side who are yet to register a win in seven league matches.
While Town have been playing well they have lacked a cutting edge in front of goal scoring just 12 goals all season, one less than their opponents Rangers who they face on Saturday.
With goals proving hard to come by, Jagger’s choices were further weakened by the departure of joint top scorer, Craig Muirhead, who put pen to paper signing for Barton.
Jagger hopes Muirhead ‘s departure will lead to more opportunities for others in the club to step up. Alex Stark has a enjoyed a bright start to the new season scoring four goals.
The imminent return of Matty Littlefield will also give Jagger a boost when it comes to addressing the issues he is facing in the goal scoring department.
Town will start Saturday’s match as favourites as they look to bring to end a two game losing streak that as seen them fall down the table to tenth position.
Last times the sides the game was settled by a single goal from Town’s Ben Thompson while prior to that they shared the spoils in a 2-2 draw.
East Riding Rangers have had a poor start to the season however their issue is not scoring goals, it is conceding goals, letting 25 from their opening seven games. Including an eight goal thrashing at the hands of Pocklington Town.
This is in stark contrast to Town who have one of the better defensive records in the league conceding just twelve times in seven matches.
