With two victories and a terrific come-from-behind draw against FA Cup heroes Salford City in their last three league games plus a Senior Cup quarter-final victory on Tuesday night, Frickley Athletic will take the field with renewed confidence when they host Ashton United on Saturday.
Like the Salford side, Ashton are pushing for promotion, currently in fifth place, while the Blues remained in 11th after their 2-2 draw last weekend, but have no fear based on their recent form when they have scored seven goals in their last three games in the Evo-Stik Premier following a three-week break.
Frickley are also in action in the league next Tuesday when they are at home to Buxton, who are one place below them in the table (kick-off 7.45pm).
North Ferriby United have agreed to allow winger Tom Davie to remain with the Blues until the end of the season.
The second month of Davie’s short loan expired after last Saturday’s game but Billy Heath’s side have agreed for Davie to stay at the SW Jackson Utilities Stadium on a long loan for the rest of the season.
Davie has impressed in a number of positions during his spell at the club having successfully filled in at right- back, central midfield and central defence and he scored both of Frickley’s goals in their 2-2 draw at Salford.
