After Wednesday's last-gasp defeat at Runcorn Town, West will look to respond as Abbey Hey make the short journey to Brookburn Road for a vital game at the wrong end of the table.

Abbey currently reside in the relegation zone, but are just four points off West and gave their chances of survival a considerable boost last weekend when they beat fellow strugglers Burscough.

West have every reason to be confident after a spirited display at Pavilions, but despite their league position Abbey have proven to be adept travellers this season. They have won five of their 11 away games in the league, including notable victories against Widnes and Charnock Richard.

Saturday also sees West link up with The Beagle and local charity Reach Out to the Community - find out more.
