West travel to Burscough as they aim to close the gap on their relegation rivals.
Hanley Town’s win over Abbey Hey last weekend, coupled with West’s inactivity, means that Hanley now sit four points above David Powell’s side, though West do have a game in hand.
Burscough shook off an unsteady start to the season to establish themselves in mid-table, but their form has dropped off since the turn of the year – they have only won twice in 2019, beating West at Brookburn Road in January and routing a faltering Barnoldswick Town 5-0 at the start of March.
The Linnets can count on the Premier Division’s third-top goalscorer in Chad Whyte, whose 32 goals in all competitions is bettered only by Charnock Richard’s Carl Grimshaw and Barnoldswick’s Zack Dale.
