Cambridge City continue with their league action tomorrow when they make the trip to Marlow.

The Lilywhites go into the game following a 2-1 Challenge Cup reverse at Biggleswade on Tuesday night. That result means that apart from the Cambs Invitation Cup, City can focus on the league for the remainder of the season as they look to bounce back to the Premier Division at the first attempt.

Their last league action was a 4-1 home win over Fleet last Saturday, a result which kept City at second spot in the table, five points behind leaders Moneyfields.

City will travel to Buckinghamshire hoping that influential defender and club captain, Ian Miller is back to full fitness. The centre back was forced to withdraw at half time last weekend with an injury. If he doesn’t make it, then youngster Adam Capel looks set to continue at the heart of the defence alongside Jordan Gent.

Elsewhere, City will also be hoping that Tom Knowles will be fit after he also had to withdraw at half time on Saturday through injury. He was named as substitute for the match at Biggleswade on Tuesday.

City play Marlow for the first time since a Spartan League clash back in April 1939. Tomorrow, the Lilywhites will take on a side that currently sit in 13th position in the table. They are quite useful at home having won 3 of their 6 league games they have played at their Oak Tree Road ground. Their form overall though is patchy. Despite winning 3 out of their first 4 league games, they had a bad September, followed by two league wins in October. Last Saturday they collected a point in a credible 2-2 draw against Egham.

In the Marlow squad will be the Bossman brothers – namely Allen and Kelvin. They have both featured for City in recent years, with Kelvin a striker for the Lilywhites playing alongside Adam Marriott in the 2013/14 season.

Elsewhere in the league tomorrow, leaders Moneyfields are without a game due to them being involved in FA Trophy action, so City could close the gap to two points with a victory. Hartley Wintney and Beaconsfield also don’t have games, so AFC Rushden and Diamonds could close the gap, and go second if City fail to win – providing they can overcome the challenge of Uxbridge.

At the bottom, Arlesey travel to Hayes and Yeading whilst Fleet entertain Aylesbury.

If you are not going to the game, then as usual you can keep up to date with all the action from Oak Tree Road via the club Facebook page and Twitter feed. A full report and post-match interview with Robbie Nightingale will be available on the official website on Saturday evening.
