Liddle knows what to expect at Dinnington
MANAGER Andy Liddle has done his homework on Cleethorpes Town's next opponents.
The Owls boss was in the crowd to watch Dinnington Town slip to a 3-1 defeat at Bottesford on Wednesday evening.
Despite that defeat, Liddle said he left the game in no doubt that his side are in for another tough test against 'Dinno' tomorrow.
He said: "I went to watch Dinnington and, although they're towards the bottom table, it was clear they're a team well capable of pulling off some good results.

"It was a very tough game for both teams in what were horrendous conditions so, fitness wise, that might count in our favour tomorrow.
"They may have got beat, but they never gave up and credit to them for that, because they might have got a draw on another day.
"It was definitely useful for me to go and watch them.
"It's a topsy turvy league and everyone can beat each other, so the more you can learn about other teams the better.
He continued: "We're not under-estimating Dinnington by any means – it will be another tough game as they all are when you're travelling two hours for a game.
"Last week wasn't the best game for us but it was a game in which we needed to bounce back and get another three points on the board and we did that.
"Now it's all about going on another little run and hopefully that will start tomorrow."
Liddle is hoping to have a fully fit squad to choose from for the game in South Yorkshire as the Owls look to take advantage of the fact that a number of the teams above them in the league are playing each other.
He said: "We have to take the initiative and hopefully we'll get a bit of luck and results will go our way.
"If we get three points tomorrow, with a lot of the teams above us playing each other, there is a chance that we could move up the table.
"The squad is looking better and we should have everyone available which will be a big boost for us.
"It will give me a bit of a headache but selection problems are always nice for a manager to have.
"We're looking forward to the game, it should be a good match – hopefully we can bring back the right result."
