Neil Aspin has called on his players to bounce back from Saturday’s home defeat when they take on Vauxhall Motors at the Shay tonight (7.45pm).

The game was originally scheduled for October 2, but was postponed 25 minutes before kick off after a downpour made the Shay surface unplayable.

The Shaymen know all too well about the threat Vauxhall Motors can provide, having been unexpectedly thumped 5-1 last season by the Chesire club - who played 75 minutes of the game with only ten men.

Town boss Aspin said his players needed to prove their worth after a lacklusture performance on Saturday.

“We know after last year that Vauxhall Motors is never an easy game,” said Aspin.

“But we need the game because we need to bounce back.”

Despite losing at home for the second time this season, defeats for fellow promotion hopefuls Guiseley and Brackley Town mean that the gap to the top of the table has remained at nine points.

Tonight’s game against the Motormen will see them move onto the same number of games played as leaders Brackley, but they still have one game in hand on their West Yorkshire rivals.

Town will again be without Jason Jarrett, who serves the second of his three game ban, while striker Dale Johnson plays his final game before a three match ban comes into effect.
