fa trophy.pngWorkington and Clitheroe are shaping-up for a potential battle to challenge the top of the NPL North West Division next Tuesday.

A 3-1 home win over rivals Ramsbottom last night moved David Lynch’s side up to second in the table, two points behind Dunstan with a game in hand.

Victory at Borough Park next week in the Match of the Week would put Clitheroe top of the pile as Dunstan don’t have a game in mid-week.

Reds, meanwhile, could move to second with a win when they would be a point behind Dunstan from the same number of games.

Ramsbottom will be desperate to make-up for the disappointment of their first defeat at Clitheroe and have a home game on Tuesday against Chris Humphrey’s young and improving Kendal side, currently seventh in the table.

Marske, still unbeaten in the League, are handily placed early on and unbeaten in four games, two points behind the Reds. They entertain Ossett United on Tuesday.

There are no NW Division games on Saturday with clubs involved in the FA Trophy, but Colne moved third last night with a 6-2 home win over Pontefract Collieries.

Reds boss Danny Grainger will have made a mental note, observing that his side won 1-0 at  Colne last week and travel to Pontefract this Saturday in the FA Trophy.

Football doesn’t work like that, however, and Grainger knows that as much as anyone else. He will be looking for a fourth successive win, ready for a crucial fifth on Tuesday.

Interestingly, Clitheroe travel to Dunstan in the Trophy, so they face a tough test ahead of their trip to Cumbria.

Marske are at Stocksbridge Steels; Colne go to Widnes; Kendal are at home to Brighouse and Ramsbottom are at Worksop.
