Match of the Day

Middlewich Town v Pilkington (ko 2pm)

Cheshire League Premier Division

MIDDLEWICH prevailed in a head-to-head with second-placed Poynton last weekend to move four points clear.

And they will be tested again when in-form opponents, victors in four of their past five league games, arrive at Seddon Street on Saturday.

The Witches are in confident mood though after four successive wins.

Northwich Victoria v Runcorn Town (ko 3pm)

North West Counties League Premier Division
