Marine entertain Atherton Collieries at the Marine Travel Arena this evening (7:45pm) in the Pitching In Northern Premier League Premier Division.

The Mariners will be seeking their second home league win of the campaign against a Colls side currently sitting two places above them in the NPL Premier table. Atherton are unbeaten in their last four league games and held leaders South Shields to a goalless draw in the North East on Saturday.

Sean Smith is a doubt for tonight’s game having limped off at Ashton on Saturday, whilst Josh-Solomon Davies remains a couple of weeks away from a return to action and Mo Touray is due to have a scan on his ankle this week.
