Midfielder Paul Marshall hopes he can help fire the Shaymen to a second FA Cup 1st round tie in two years this weekend.

After overcoming Blue Suqare Conference North rivals Chester in the previous round, Town travel to Sincil Bank hoping to overcome opponents from a higher division in Lincoln City.

And Marshall, who is one of only three Town players to gave started every game this season, said he was looking forward to the game.

“Anything is possible,” said the 23-year-old.

“I think we’ve got a good opportunity to show what we can do and I think we can beat Lincoln.”

Marshall has established himself in the middle of midfield diamond this term, a position he feels is more natural for him than on the wing, and is something manager Neil Aspin said would aid the development of a player who was on the books at Manchester City as a youngster and has three England U20 caps.

“The more you play the better you feel and the the more confident you are,” said Marshall, who signed in the summer after ending last season at Port Vale.

“I think we’re doing OK generally in midfield. We missed Jason Jarrett last weekend but he’ll be back soon and than hopefully we can keep pushing on towards promotion,” he said.

“I think we’re in a decent position at the moment, obviously we’d like to be a bit nearer the top but I think it’s OK so far.”
