West Preview: Leek's chance to protect play-off spot

By James Gordon

Leek Town have the chance to fend off the two teams below as the EVO-STIK League West Division reaches its final few weeks.

Leek are currently three points above Colne and Mossley, who both have home ties this weekend. Nevertheless, The Blues can keep their fate in their own hands with a fifth win in six away at Glossop North End.

Colne can extend their run of four wins in five at Holt House against a Drolysden side on a three-match losing run, while Mossley host a Trafford side with four straight victories on the road.

At the top of the table, Atherton can extend their lead at the top to four if they inflict a fourth defeat in a row on Clitheroe FC. With Radcliife FC and Ramsbottom without a game this weekend, Runcorn Linnets can end the day third with victory over Colwyn Bay, who are winless in their last three.

Elsewhere, Prescot Cables will look to extend their run of three wins in the last four against Newcastle Town. Robin Van Der Laan’s side have lost their last three, so will a trip to Valerie Park be the catalyst for their form to turn around?

In the final two games of the round, Kidsgrove Athletic will hope to continue their recent record of six wins in the last 10 at home to mid-table Widnes FC, while Market Drayton host in-form Chasetown, who have picked up 22 points from their last 10 league games.
