West head north for the second time in a week as they face Padiham at the Ruby Civil Arena.

Steve Settle’s side will be looking to respond after Tuesday’s defeat at Silsden and secure a first win at the home of the Storks since February 2016. West will also hope to call upon Ash Woods for the first time in the league since his return to the club after the former Trafford man missed the midweek trip to Yorkshire.

The Storks have made an inconsistent start to the season, winning and losing three games each in the league before last Saturday’s draw at Northwich Victoria. The Lancashire side have almost guaranteed entertainment so far this term – their 1-0 defeat at Squires Gate two weeks ago was their only game so far to feature fewer than four goals. That also includes a heavy 5-2 FA Cup defeat at West Yorkshire outfit Liversedge.
