Match preview

Newly-appointed West manager David Powell’s first assignment is a visit to Whitchurch Alport as his side’s December belatedly gets underway.

A series of unfortunate events has meant that West haven’t played since the 1-0 defeat at Charnock Richard on 28th November, and their position has become even more alarming in the interim as they now lie nine points off Premier Division safety. That means former Skelmersdale and Burscough boss Powell will be looking to launch a rescue operation with this weekend’s visit to Shropshire.

Alport had to wait until 22nd September for their first league win at level 9 following promotion through the First Division play-offs last season, but since then have consolidated their position. They sit in a comfortable mid-table position as they enter the festive period, following up a winless November with a 6-1 hammering of Hanley last wee
