THE Seagulls are likely to have Gaz Grant back in the centre of defence for Tuesday’s (Oct 18) home game against Radcliffe Borough (7:45pm kick off) as they look to build on a run of six wins in the last seven games.
Gaz was unavailable for last Saturday’s 2-1 win away to Kendal Town but is expected to return, allowing Kyle Armstrong to possibly move into a defensive midfield role.
It is unlikely that international clearance will come through in time for new forward signing Jack Kelleher to be involved and Michael Roddy is maybe a couple of weeks away from being considered as he looks to build up his match fitness.
Otherwise, manager Paul Moore reports a near full strength squad with Shaun Dowling also nearing full fitness after an angle ligament injury.
Radcliffe travel to the Bay on the back of a thumping 5-1 home win over struggling Goole last weekend and only Clitheroe and Glossop have scored more goals than them in the league this season.
The Seagulls, however, are targeting a hat-trick of back to back Saturday-Tuesday victories in the past month to maintain their challenge for a top four spot and take them above Farsley Celtic who lost 2-1 at leaders Brighouse on Monday.
A presentation is planned before the game to Luke Denson following his 200th competitive game for the Bay last weekend.
