The match could prove to be an interesting encounter for the fans in a game that sees Beverley face the side who are five places below them in the Northern League.
Old Rishworthians arrive at Beaver Park with back to back wins though Beverley will certainly go into the match as favourites as they look to keep pressure on the sides in the hunt for promotion.
When the Bevelrey last played Old Rishworthians in the reverse fixture back in September, the Beavers had to come from behind to claim the win in what was close encounter.
Gaffer Will Turnbull insists that confidence is high in the squad and is again backing his players to deliver this weekend in front of their home crowd.
Speaking ahead of the game, Turnbull said;
“Home form is a huge strength, it was last season.”
“We have players coming back into the squad from holidays, honeymoons, injuries and personal reasons. As a team we are looking no further than this week and 5 points.”
“ This half of the season has been really pleasing. For a team who are small across the board, we punch above our weight and with a massively young squad, that bodes well for the future.”
“We have been building since last year and we will work our hardest to finish where we can.”
On Paper Beverley looks odds on favourites to win the match. They have won more games, scored more points and conceded less points then this Saturday’s opponents.
If Beverley are stay in with a shout of sneaking promotion then they will certinly need to capitalise on their home form and not only win games like this, but win them well.
With high flyers York and Scarbrough both yet to come to Beaver Park, it really could be Beverley’s performances at home that determine’s their fate and future in this divison.
Beverley against Old Rishworthians kicks of at 2.15PM – there is free parking and the bar willbe open serving refreshments.
