NORTHWICH and Winnington Park both play home games on Saturday.

Blacks will be motivated to avenge a defeat against Stockport in the return game earlier this season when former Sale Sharks favourite Dean Schofield brings his men to Moss Farm.

Both sides have lost three of their past four matches in North One West; Northwich went down 32-12 at second-placed Blackburn last weekend while their guests conceded a last-minute try in a 36-28 reverse against Warrington.

Winnington Park seek to extend a run of victories in Lancs/Cheshire Division One to three matches when Southport arrive at Burrows Hill.

They too lost heavily in a first meeting between the teams.

However Matt Farr has seen encouraging signs in the past fortnight in response to a 40-10 defeat at Bowdon at the beginning of the month.

He also pledged this week to continue putting his faith in emerging players after including teenage scrum-half Archie Sanchez for the first time in a 23-18 success at Leigh last time out.

Meanwhile on Sunday Winnington's women hope to finally end a wait to play for the first time since the turn of the year.

They host Littleborough in the RFU Women's National Challenge North Two West, opponents who eliminated them from a national knockout competition last month.
