The Opposition
Marine twice came from behind at The Brewery Field on Saturday to force a replay against Moors in this Second Round Qualifying tie in the FA Cup.

The Merseyside outfit were more than worthy of their result as they underlined their good recent form with a strong performance in the 2-2 draw.

Neil Young’s men have won their last three games in the Northern Premier League Premier Division and have emerged as genuine promotion contenders this term.

Previous Meeting
Moors will run a missed opportunity to progress at the first time of asking at the weekend as they twice allowed Marine to get back on level terms having taken the lead.

Joshua Popoola and Glen Taylor both found the net to put Jamie Chandler’s men in the driving seat during a frenetic second half, but Marine came back with goals from Manasse Mampala and Sol Solomon to force a replay.

Team News
Mark Anderson is unavailable as he recovers from ankle ligament damage, while Michael Ledger is sidelined with a hamstring issue and Lebrun Mbeka’s hip injury will be assessed ahead of kick-off.

Match Officials
Jonathan Maskrey will take charge of Tuesday evening’s FA Cup tie, and he will be assisted by Thomas Harland and Joel Buckle.
