Match of the Day

1874 Northwich v Hanley Town (ko 3pm, at Winsford United FC)

North West Counties League Premier Division

A FIRST meeting between the teams ended level on Tuesday, when 1874 rallied from 2-0 down.

That means they have lost only one of their past nine matches in the North West Counties League's top-flight, a sequence they will be eager to extend this weekend.

A win would set them up nicely for a trip to leaders, and title-favourites, City of Liverpool seven days later.

And what about...?

Lostock Gralam v Buxton res (ko 2pm)

Cheshire League One

THE Grey Lambs have climbed to fourth in the table following an 11-match unbeaten run that has included nine wins.

It feels a long time ago that they started the campaign with successive defeats.

However management duo Dom Johnson and Dean Jones will be keen for their side to keep their foot to the pedal against a side that have won only once this term.

Why not give your local team a cheer?
