Conor Marshall admits he has no idea what position he’ll be asked to play in when he reports for duty on match days.

The defender remains a right back at heart, but says he will play anywhere to help the team out.

“I haven’t a clue (where I’ll be playing). I just turn up and wherever the manager puts me I play,” said Marshall (pictured).

“I don’t mind.

“It’s not always my favourite position, but I’ll give it everything in every game.”

Since he joined from Brigg Town in January 2012, Marshall has been deployed as a right back, wing back and central defender.

But pre-season matches have seen manager Dennis Greene try out a 3-5-2 formation, which has seen the 20-year-old used as part of a back three as well as the ball winner in the heart of midfield.

But Marshall has no doubts where he’d rather be playing.

“My favourite position is right back, I like getting up and down,” he told The Standard.

“You get a lot of the ball, dont you?

“But to be honest, I did enjoy it in the midle against Lincoln (City).

“That was something different for me. I’ve never really played there and I enjoyed it.

“But I’m here to do everything for the team.”

There’s competition for places in defence this season, but Marshall is impresed with his new teammates Scott Garner, Carl Piergianni and Stefan Galinski, adding: “They’re all big strong lads.

“I used to play with Garns at Grimsby, so I know him quite well.

“The other two lads, Pidge and Stef, they’re good, big strong lads.”
