Match preview

West’s quest for points continues this weekend as they welcome Silsden to Brookburn Road.

With just 12 league games remaining, West can already be said to be entering the run-in even before the end of January. David Powell’s side are currently outside of the relegation zone on goal difference, and will be desperate to reclaim the momentum lost in the home defeat by Burscough a fortnight ago.

Anyone who was in Yorkshire to see Silsden beat West 3-0 in September would scarcely believe the Cobbydalers would enter the return fixture in the bottom half of the table. But after beating Winsford United later that month they fell away dramatically, picking up just ten points from the next 48 on offer. That wretched run of form includes a 7-0 hammering by Bootle and last weekend’s home defeat by bottom side Abbey Hey.
