The match is scheduled to be played at Whitkirk Sports and Social Club and has a kick-off time of 2 pm. A look at the weather forecast shows that we should have sunny intervals and a slight breeze accompanying us.
At the time of this report, Whitkirk occupies 9th place in the Premier Division table. They have amassed 16 points from a possible 42 with nine coming at home.
In the goals chart, they have scored 12 (averaging 2.0 goals per home game) and conceded 13 (averaging 2.2 games per home game).
Whitkirk were afforded a bye to get to the second round of this competition. However, being a Premier Division side, we will be expecting a tough game from a quality opposition.

Team News For Rangers.
Before the recent defeat against Ripon City in the Whitworth Cup, we had enjoyed an eight-match unbeaten run, and this is the level that the management has challenged the squad to reach again.
There are a few players who are unavailable for this match, but there is still enough depth in the squad for Manager Dan Marshall to name an extremely competitive side to take to the Whitkirk pitch.
The Man In The Middle.
Taking charge will be Mr Ian Knee. This will be his fourth match in charge and the stats show that he has sent four players to the Sin-Bin and cautioned a further three.
