Match preview

With just six games of the Premier Division season remaining, West will look to make the most of the first of four home matches when they welcome relegation rivals Padiham.

Last Saturday's 3-0 reverse at Burscough, West's fifth defeat in a row, meant that David Powell's side remain four points adrift of Hanley Town coming into this weekend's fixtures.

The Storks have plummeted into relegation trouble after a truly woeful autumn and winter period. A last-minute win against Hanley in their previous game on 2nd March was their first success in 14 matches since the reverse fixture against the Staffordshire side on 27th October.

That run accounted for joint managers Liam Smith and Dixon Lambert, who resigned in December and were replaced by former Storks player Adam Morning.
