Marshall plots revenge over Yorks rivals Selby

TADCASTER Albion manager Paul Marshall has revenge in mind tomorrow when they welcome North Yorkshire rivals Selby to The Park (3pm ko).

Their opponents ruled the roost in their last derby contest back in August winning that battle 2-0.

Marshall was upset with the actions of Selby manager Michael Gray after that result and believes his side should have fire in their stomach to hit them where it hurts.

“I won’t need to tell them. The players already know,” he said.

“It’s a big game for us, there will be a big crowd down there and we want revenge.

“Their manager was a bit disrespectful the last time we played them

“I was disappointed with that.

“That should get the players up for it.”

One player Marshall hopes will continue to shine is new signing Liam Shepherd.

The former York City man has endured a frustrating time at Blue Square North outfit Harrogate Town recently after failing to break into their first choice 11.

Shepherd has dropped down three stages to join Albion and his new boss has backed him to bounce back.

“Sometimes you’ve got to take a step back before making a step forward,” he added.

“Liam is a good player. He’s not been getting a game at Harrogate and I know it’s been getting him down.

“He’s been a bit down in the dumps but he’s a good player and I’m sure he’ll bounce back.”

Shepherd made his debut for the club on Tuesday night at home to promotion rivals Parkgate.

It proved to be a good night for youngster after he opened the scoring after two minutes.

Parkgate made a game of it in the second period when they levelled the match on 53 minutes.

But it was Nick Thompson who proved the hero for Tad’ grabbing the winner ten minutes later.

Tad’ are away at Dinnington on Tuesday night (7.45pm ko).
