Match information: West v Abbey Hulton United

Please read all of the information below before attending Saturday’s game.

West return to The Step Places Stadium to take on Abbey Hulton United in another crucial First Division South fixture.

Chris Rowley’s side opened up a three-point gap at the top of the league with Tuesday’s dramatic late win at Brocton, and still hold a game in hand over the chasing pack.

Abbey Hulton have lost their last three games as they attempt to winch themselves away from relegation danger. The Staffordshire side go into the weekend in 16th place, five points clear of Eccleshall in the drop zone.

West were 3-1 winners in October’s reverse fixture – Sam Heathcote’s early double put the visitors in control, before Ben Elliott snuffed out an Abbey comeback in the second period.
