Player-coach Craig Tyrrell is delighted by the upsurge of form and also a positive medical bulletin on young striker Elliot Tart, who was taken to hospital during the 1-1 draw with Rovers on Saturday evening.

‘I’m very happy with the boys at the moment. The work rate and organisation has been superb lately,’ he said yesterday.

‘Elliot had an X-ray but nothing broken. Unknown return date unfortunately,’ Tyrrell added.

It is the first of two midweek games, with tomorrow Belgraves heading to Northfield for a clash with another side on the up, Jose Alvarez’s Northerners, and attempting to keep the league’s top goalscorer off the scoresheet.

Sam Murray’s four-goal haul against Rangers on Saturday takes him up to 21 for the season, nine clear of Sylvans’ Kyle Smith.

Despite their surge in form, Northerners need a minor miracle to lift the league title, but they will fancy themselves in the Guernsey FA Cup, which has seen its quarter-final line-up and schedule confirmed.

Northerners play Manzur at Northfield on the evening of Friday 4 December, followed the next day by the remaining three matches all kicking off at 1.30pm.

Rangers play Red Lion North Reserves at St Andrew’s, Sylvans welcome Belgraves to St Peter’s and St Martin’s play Vale Rec at either Blanche Pierre Lane or College Field.
