Stafford Rangers were today down to their last striking target ahead of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League trip to Marine.

Both Spencer Weir-Daley and Mark Danks have turned down a move to Marston Road, opting to join Boston United and Stourbridge respectively.

But Rangers boss Greg Clowes today signed Chasetown and Rushall Olympic striker Chris Morris from Midland Alliance side Romulus.

In his current ranks, midfielder Glynn Blackhurst could return to the squad heading to Rossett Park tomorrow after a back injury.

Blackhurst has been out for three games since pulling out in the warm up at Nantwich but has responded to treatment from a back specialist.

The 27-year-old took part in training last night but fellow midfielder Michael Morton has been ruled out, after breaking down in midweek.

Morton came off at half-time in a friendly at Alsager after suffering muscle spasms relating to the hamstring injury that has ruled him out for six games.

Rangers hit the road after stunning FC United of Manchester away from home last weekend but Clowes warns it will be harder to win at Marine.

He said: "We are judged on results and, irrespective of what we do, we remain positive and think we can go anywhere and win.

"We have got to try and build on it now, it's no use winning at FC United and then chucking it away at Marine.

"This is an even tougher side, the league table doesn't lie and they are two places above FC United.

"But, like last week, we are going up there to win, we are not going to make the numbers up."

Clowes has also put his side on red alert to the danger of Marine strike duo Aaron Rey and Louis Barnes.

He said: "They have got two up front who we really need to keep an eye on, they are a threat to anyone.

"They have been a partnership all season, they work each off other and have been scoring regularly.

"We have got to make sure we look after them tomorrow."
