NORTHWICH Victoria can't dwell for long on an FA Vase exit against Chertsey Town because they are scheduled to return to action at Barnoldswick tonight.

Steve Wilkes’ side still have nine matches left in the North West Counties League’s Premier Division – that's at least two more than any rival in the top-flight.

And that run-in starts at Barlick, a fixture Vics start occupying sixth position in the table.

They can also reach a final before the end of the campaign if they can overcome 1874 Northwich in a Mid-Cheshire District FA Senior Cup semi-final next week.

Here’s how their schedule looks for April:

April 01 Barnoldswick Town (a) (ko 2000)

April 03 Litherland REMYCA (a) (ko 1945)

April 07 Burscough (h) (ko 1500)

April 11 1874 Northwich (h) (ko 1945) (Mid-Cheshire District FA Senior Cup semi-final)

April 13 Ashton Athletic (h) (ko 1500)

April 17 Squires Gate (h) (ko 1945)

April 20 Runcorn Town (a) (ko 1500)

April 22 Irlam (h) (ko 1945)

April 24 Silsden (a) (ko 1945)

April 27 Bootle (a) (ko 1500)

A date for the Mid-Cheshire District FA Senior Cup final will be set after the semi-finals are complete
