Match preview

West return to mid-Cheshire as they chase vital points against in-form Northwich Victoria.

Saturday’s 3-2 defeat at Winsford United left West one point off their closest relegation rivals Hanley Town, and with Hanley and Padiham both having games in hand, a win against the Vics would be a significant boost.

But claiming three points at Wincham Park will be easier said than done against a side who celebrated progression to the FA Vase semi-finals last Saturday. Vics’ extra-time win over Sholing was their sixth win in seven games, with a defeat to leaders City of Liverpool the only aberration in that run.

An inconsisent start to the season means that a late promotion push is probably beyond Steve Wilkes’ side, but games in hand due to their cup exploits mean that they will be aiming for a top-three finish.
