Marine boss Kevin Lynch will be urging his players to refocus after their narrow weekend defeat to fellow play off contenders FC United. Taking three points off the Cumbrians is never easy but with just ten games remaining the Mariners can ill afford to drop further points.
Kendal Town are regular contenders for a play off space but cup runs and postponed league games have stunted their promotion aspirations this term.
It has still been an impressive season for the Cumbrians who play Chorley at the Reebok Stadium next month in the final of the Lancashire FA Trophy. They have also reached the semi finals of the Doodson League Cup.
