Match of the Day

Witton Albion v Bamber Bridge

Northern Premier League

Carl Macauley's men start what could be crucial sequence in their season when Bamber Bridge arrive at Wincham Park.

Albion's aim is to climb the table during the run-up to a Boxing Day derby with Warrington Town and they will be motivated to avenge a 2-0 defeat in the return back in September.

They start this contest 18th in the table but with four games in hand on their guests.

And what about...?

Abbey Hey v 1874 Northwich

Macron Cup

A place in the quarter-finals is a prize on offer for the victors of this third-round encounter in Gorton.

Co-manager Wayne Goodison has set 1874 Northwich a target of staying in knockout competitions they haven't been eliminated from by the turn of the year.

They will be favourites to beat struggling opponents searching for a new man to take charge following the departure of former Northwich Victoria boss Paul Moore.

Why not give your local team a cheer?
