Match preview

West return to league action for the first time in three weeks when they welcome Charnock Richard to Brookburn Road.

David Powell's side remain one place above the relegation zone, but the bottom end of the table now has a more condensed look to it with only three points separating 16th-placed Padiham with Hanley Town in 19th. As West enter their final ten games of the season, a win against Charnock would be a huge fillip in their bid to avoid the drop.

Charnock inflicted defeat in Matty Kay's only game as caretaker manager in November - courtersy of Carl Grimshaw, inevitably - and the central Lancashire side are enjoying a second solid campaign at Premier Division level. They took a creditable point from Congleton Town in their last league fixture, also three weeks ago, and will be confident of at least matching their 6th-placed finish last season.
